In an effort to finish some things up and put some order to my house, I have been rescuing abandoned knitting from various parts of the house and dedicating myself to finish things rather than start new things. (Although while searching for matching yarn or previously knit parts I keep finding things that I want to start but then I imagine that I need the needles that are stuck in some piece of abandoned knitting.) Well, two different people had asked about my mother's sweater in the past few months and with just the fronts between me and a finished sweater I figured I better get working on it. The weather will soon be turning crisp and my mother will need a warm sweater for her walks out to the chicken house to gather eggs.
I have finished the five pieces and now must work on the button bands, pocket edgings and collar. I should be able to get to the seaming by tomorrow and will easily be done before the Montpelier Sheep Dog Trials and fiber festival where I will see my mother. Now if only I can find the buttons that my mother bought for this at MDSW year before last.
