Out of the BLACK HOLE

The area between the armpits of a sweater and the bottom of the sweater, whether you are working top-down or bottom-up, is a veritable black hole of mind-numbing knitting that seems to never grow any longer no matter how long you knit. It's even worse when you're knitting a sweater for a very tall man with a broad chest.

Despite all that, I did it! I got through the very tall, very wide, very ribbed and VERY boring body of Jon's sweater! (I actually wrapped this up a while ago but have been so sick of it I couldn't even look at it, let alone take pictures or blog about it. But here's the proof!

Body done, needs collar and sleeves

The flash made the blue look a bit brighter than it actually is. It's more of a dark and stormy blue. The ribbing makes it pull in and look narrower, so I stretched the shoulders out a little across the top of the chair that it's resting on, to show what it's going to look like after it's finished, washed, blocked, and worn on a husband. :)

Hi KnitGirl,
I think it's fun to read your blog since I haven't seen you or your husband or your dog or your knitting since Thanksgiving....Hint, hint. Nice work you've been doing on the knitting, though. Happy Easter.
