My Everest

This sweater is finally finished! It has taken so loooong, though there were(somewhat) understandable reasons.
I managed to complete the front, back and sleeves in a couple months. Not great, but not bad. Then, I realized that I didn't have enough yarn to finish the collar and put it together. So I put it aside for a while - you know, ignore it for a while and hope an extra ball of yarn will magically appear?

Yeah, didn't work out so great.

So, after searching a few places (namely my wonderful local store and the nice knitters at ravelry) and finding the yarn had been discontinued, I found one last ball here. Truly, it was meant to be.

The Plymouth Tweed was lovely to work with, very tactile without feeling either fuzzy or slippery.
I think the waiting, searching and more waiting took longer than the actual knitting.

Come winter, though, it will all be worth it. I'm gonna be one warm mama!

I've heard of looking for a needle in a haystack, but your quest sounds even more daunting. Praise God He cares about His children enough to bring them one ball of yarn just because..

BTW, the word verification today is "warmi". Funni.
