But now I've started the left front.
It is knit flat. No way around it. I hate knitting flat. Mind you, because the bands are wide, it is a narrow front. There are only 36 stitches. One would think I could handle knitting 36 stitches flat. That it would in fact, make it quite easy. But no. It means I spend more time turning than knitting. I just can't do it. Now, if at home, I could put those fronts on the machine and zip, zip, they would be done.
So I ask myself (I always wondered if I should have gone into time management) what is the best use of my time. And I weigh that against having a finished sweater. Is it worth knititng flat, knitting bored, just to get a finished sweater. No, I just can't do it. When I ask myself if I should put aside the Moose and start another sweater, the other sweater wins the day. Which one shall I choose. One covered in cables or one of mindless knitting which will be good car knititng if I don't finish it before driving home. Which one. I will let that settle a bit before deciding.
Hurrah! I just discovered that the É which pops up when I want to do an apostrophe shows up in spell check and I can correct it there. Hurrah!
Start the cabled sweater. When you want mindless car knitting, work the moose.
I feel the same way about flat knitting, but sometimes I power through it. I'd wait until you're home for this one, and start BOTH new sweaters - The cable one for now the mindless for the car.
The moose is very... funky! And totally wearable... were you thinking of giving it away? I'm a "starter", so my opinion doesn't count with someone who likes to finish... eh?
