Talk about a labour of love.

I started this in September, as I knew that the bloke would love it. Did I mention that my cabling experience was limited?

I struggled through the back, cast on the front, and abandoned it.

Just over a fortnight ago, I decide that the best way would be to pick it up and do a couple of rows at a time. No pressure, just half an hour here and there.

After an hour, I realised that the pattern really had stuck in my head, and I raced through it.

Hell, I even picked up the bands right away, much to the shock of everyone who knows my finishing-phobia.

I love it, the bloke loves it, and the woman who was staring on the bus seems to like it too.

That is lovely! And isn't it satisfying to knit for someone who appreciates it?
