Recently, I was given many skeins of an ugly yarn. I have wanted to make a sweater for a couple of years now, but haven't had enough yarn to do so. After all the hours of knitting that went into this thing, I don't think the yarn is that bad anymore. However, I did not measure before I started and just went with the extra-large size thinking it would fit me. I'm not sure if it is good or bad, but it is WAY too big for me. I can't even wear it for the picture. I've had this extra baby weight for the past year and a half- I would have never guessed something would be too big to fit.
I'm just so happy to finally finish a sweater. It really is quite a feat. I'm quite proud.
