But instead it is a pile of little balls on my sofa. I was three-quarters of the way done with the body and nearly done with the sleeves of the Amelia sweater: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/amelia-8 when I decided to actually try it on. Unfortunately, it was more kimono wrap than form-fitting cardigan. I determined there was very little to do besides commence ripping. And so, I did. Also unfortunately, I was supposed to be writing a paper at the time.

Both the paper and the ripping are done and I have moved on with my life. I have plans for the ripped yarn – maybe a replay of Amelia or maybe this:http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/placed-cable-aran

In the meantime, I have another sweater on the needles that has been on them for much longer than any sweater should. And it’s a summer one so now’s the time to get cracking, according to the knitting. Until next time, faithful reader.
