November 1. It is 'wear-my-newly-knit-Autumn Fair-coat-for-first-time' day. But does this look finished to you?
Not only is it not finished, it is not even blocked. The back, two sleeves and 90% of one front, complete. A second front and all trims yet to do.
Autumn Fair is coat length. That will make it, I think, too warm to wear as a sweater. It might be one of those knits that upon completion is immediately put away for next season. It won't be my first to experience that fate. At this stage, the knitting has become a bit tiresome. The tiresome stage is when I give myself strict orders. 'You cannot go out to play until you knit 10 rows' kind of strict orders. Being a woman of no self discipline, sometimes I have to do that
With the wet, rainy weather and minimal, non-knitting, time commitments over the next few days, it should be a great knitting weekend. I hope the same for you.
