I feel like I've run a marathon - a knitting marathon! lol I purchased the Boxy Pullover pattern by Joji Locatelli. I realized the whole sweater is knit in fingering weight yarn. What??? I can't just do rows and rows of stockinette stitch with fingering yarn without going crazy. So, I purchased the Worsted Boxy Pullover pattern and doubled the fingering yarn. But then I didn't have enough of the yarn if I made the whole sweater by doubling the yarn... Ugh. So I went to the local yarn shop and saw these beautiful, speckled Long Dog yarns and went for it. This took me 6 weeks to knit and get it all together but I love the way it fits. Am I the only one who makes a saga out of knitting a pullover pattern??? Or any pattern - for that matter? But - in the end - when the sweater is all finished, I'm pretty satisfied. I believe I will make another Worsed Boxy in totally different colors... once I get through with 3 other knitting projects - and a crochet project.

Your sweater looks great! I'm glad you posted that picture, now I'll move it up in my queue.

And no, you're not the only one who makes a saga about knitting! Everything I knit is a bit of an adventure, one way or another.

Your sweater is beautiful!. No, you're not the only one who takes forever knitting a project. I'm working on Dress Renee's yoga Shawn and have been at our for well over a year!. I have 11 inches to go!
