I noticed people getting ready for this Stopover KAL. It seems like the goal is to get this sweater done ASAP. I was even stopping at Halcyon in Maine who carried the exact yarn required. I checked out the pattern details on Rav. It didn't go up to my size. So I opted out.
I got an email from Carole saying they were publishing larger sizes. That would work. But when I did go to Halcyon they didn't have enough of any color that I liked to make it work. And then I noticed Judy's post. She was making it in handspun. The lightbulb went on and I got to digging in the stash. And Stopover was cast on.
I started five days later than everyone else and if you can believe it people were actually finished with the sweater by then. Can you imagine? A sweater in five days? Actually - I think it was six days but either way my hands would cramp up and be useless after that.
So I am knitting away. There's gonna be a lot of brown on the blog for a while.
