I was hoping to have a finished Stopover to show you today. Alas, the photo you see does not look very different from the last one I showed you. It is, in fact, different though.
The body is longer.
Do you know how I got the body to be longer?
Do you know why the body is longer?
Because I was on Ravelry updating the details on this sweater and I went back on the blog to check out the one I made 3 years ago and right there, in my own words, it said:
I also added a couple of inches to the length.
Guess what I didn’t do this time? And yes, I had already attached the sleeves and knit about an inch and a half.
Knit two more inches on the body.
I’ve still got another inch of the shoulders before I start the decreases for the yoke and the colorwork.
It’s all good, though, because I love it and it will be finished and worn very soon. I hope.
I am reading The Museum of Modern Love and I’m enjoying it tremendously. I predict that I will be finished with the book before I am finished with the sweater.
That’s just how things roll around here.
