The second sweater in my Christmas gift sweater project took me a grand total of 25 days to create from start to finish. Okay, technically its not quite finished, it needs to dry and then have its buttons put on but it is close enough. Slade was such a simple knit that the pieces of the sweater took me only two weeks to complete. The real challenge was in the finishing. The collar with, 258 stitches, took me ages to complete and don’t even get me started on the seaming. I despise seaming, especially the armholes! All things considered I quite like the finished piece and can’t wait to see if it looks as nice on my dad as it does pinned out on my bed.
Thankfully the next sweater I’m going to make is of the seamless top-down variety, my favorite!
