Can It Be Done?

I started a sweater this morning. No big deal, you say. Well, what if I told you I want to finish it by Wednesday? Yes, this Wednesday. In 5 days. And what if I told you it's fingering weight yarn on size 5 needle? Yes, it's Wollmeise in Olio Vergine colorway.

So this is how it all started. The HWWTM asked if I was ready to go to Miami Thursday? I said yes. He says well do you have enough Saints gear? I say no. He says you have to wear Saints attire everyday. I say ok, take stock of what I have and decide to knit a sweater. Makes sense to me.

So, here's the deal. I was going to post pictures everynight, but lighting will be a problem. So I will post progress pics every morning. I have a little over 4 inches knitted on it now. Back to work.

BTW, it's the Featherweight Cardigan.

Oh, and the Girasole has been put in timeout for the time being.

Wish me luck.


  1. Oh Mother!! You are unbelievable!! Why don't you just go buy something???

  2. I have all the confidence in the world in you! Now get off the computer and knit!!!

  3. Oh cool! Good luck; this sweater is actually in my queue, I can't decide which WM color to use. I'll be watching your progress and rooting for you. I was rather hoping it was knit in the round and steeked, as all those miles of purling (I assume, on the wrong side?) are daunting.
