Antler, finished

 

I finished something! It turns out that if you work on stuff, it eventually gets done.

This is the famous Antler pullover by Ankestrick (pattern here). I really think this is my favorite thing I've ever knitted.

It doesn't hurt that the yarn is the sumptuous Madelinetosh Sock in "Charcoal" with contrast from Periwinkle Sheep "The Witch's Brew". I am so influenced by color names and would have bought that one regardless, but that color! So Lemongrassy. Get in my stash!

Look at that contrast color glow! So great. Gray with neon yellow is one of my most favorite combinations.

What I learned:

1. Knit with the Tosh. It is Worth It.

2. My hair is not getting any longer, just more coiled up. I only know this by looking at myself in a photo, and cannot see it in the mirror. Odd, this phenomenon. Also, the hair is still furzly, despite my treating it with all the tenderness and care you would give a human baby. Furzly hair is my fate.

3. Comfy, baggy, faded mom jeans should be recycled. Come on, self. This pullover deserves better.
