Last fall I picked up a very large stack of wool at the church fair. I had thoughts of wool jumpers and tights with boots. Lots of them. I wanted a closet full of jumpers. Plaids, black, brown and grey. I would wear them everyday. Don't exactly know where I was going, but by golly, I would be in my jumper.
Fast forward to Monday, March 10th. No jumpers hanging in my closet. Nope, not a single one. And then I saw this. (And this is where the internet makes me crazy). I stopped everything I was doing, (I guess I was probably reading blogs and doing laundry, maybe a little knitting) grabbed my pattern, the wool, pins and scissors, and became a person with a mission.
I actually wore it to work today. Probably the only time I will ever wear it.
You see, even though I took my time matching the top to the bottom, trying to line up the plaids, this still happened.
Whoops! Thank goodness for slouchy cardigans and longish hair. It actually felt good to wear it once. I think I got the jumper craze out of my system. This plaid wool won't go to waste. I still want to make one of these.
