Thread cardigan, here I come

I bought the thread. It'll be a while before this:

turns into this:

But at least it'll keep me out of trouble for a while.

Am I crazy?

I've been bitching and moaning about how I can't make garments. And then I saw this and was gripped with the desire to make it. Thread! In my favorite color! Gah!!!

Pretty sweater

Too bad it doesn't fit me either! This is the latest UFO to be finished. I left off a couple of years ago because the instructions for attaching the sleeves didn't make sense. I finally figured it out, but either I did it wrong or all those hours in the gym have made my arms too huge for the underarm area. Technically it fits me, in that I can get it on, but I need help getting it back off again and it's not exactly flattering.

But it looks just like the picture!

It's made with some gorgeously soft alpaca. It's lovely and I wish it fit me. I have to stop kidding myself that I can make garments. Really.

I need to find a small-armed, small-chested friend to gift it to I suppose...
