If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile, your probably familiar with Ben’s sweater. I’ve been knitting it- for about 2 years. Well, it will be two years in October. It’s EZ’s Saddle Shouldered Aran recipe. I bought the wool (Reynold’s Lopi) at Rhinebeck in 2007 and have very slowly been working on it. I am finished with the lower body portion, almost done the first arm, and am going to start the second arm this week. Then I just have to finish the yoke. You see, it’s not that the sweater is entirely difficult or time consuming. The problem is that when I have completed all the knitting – I have to cut the sweater down the center. Terrifying. I know that’s why I’ve been putting off its completion. I have to finish it by Rhinebeck this year- Ben’s coming, and he’ll need something to wear.
