Yes, well, I know...

It's one thing to say "more soon!" and entirely another thing to actually do it.

Seriously? I'm not the first person to type that?

I can't promise to do better, but I'll try. Right now, the main issue is this:



The Bohus. I've joined sleeves and body, knit the charts, done decreases, and... now I start the neck decreases? Seems a bit early, to me...

I've done enough decreases that I tried it on. I like the length and width of the body, even after squirshing out the 10 stitches for steek facings. I'm less sure about the sleeves. If this really is the width at which the neck is supposed to begin, the sleeves might be an inch long... and the forearms may be snugger than I'd like. (Hey, I was making it up as I went!)

Right now, Bohus is sitting quietly on the corner of the couch while I think about all of this. I'm trying very hard to ignore the "FINISH! You want to start the next sweater!" calls and listen to the "You'd totally wear this, if it fit nicely -- and you have the skills to make it right." voice.

Too bad "fit nicely" probably means re-knitting the sleeves and, therefore, the yoke...

Oooof, I'm sorry, but yes the voice is right, you would wear it if it fit right. And no you aren't the first to say it, I've done it too, alot this year!

Yeah, you'll want it to fit right since it's so gorgeous. Bummer you have to rip some back though. But the good news is that you'll have an amazing sweater when you're done.

Remember what Steph says, "Ripping means more knitting. And we like knitting, right?"

Or EZ's, "Knit on through all crises."

Hang in there, a Bohus is a "magnum opus" so you'll want it to fit perfect.

When I realize I have to reknit, I have to put the sweater aside for a little while and take several deep breaths (or stiff drinks) first. Sometimes those deep breaths take a few days. Or weeks.
