I am one of those people who always has more than one craft going at a time. So when I got bored of working on my cross stitch I switched over to the blocking of my first sweater (my project notes are on Ravelry for anyone who is interested).
The Shapely Boyfriend Sweater from Knitty is a pattern I have admired for a long time, but had never had the time (or the courage) to attempt. I finally decided just to dive right in. It was a quick project, taking just a little under a month to do. And I love the fact that I could try it on as I went! I used Lion Brand Wool-Ease, leftovers from a previous project. And fortunately I had buttons in my crafting stash that worked well. So now its back to the cross stitch bread cover... with two days left to finish it. Fingers crossed it gets done!
