After lots of lovely encouragement from lots of my lovely readers, I put the pieces of the secret sweater in a box – so one squish didn’t give away what it was – and wrapped it up.
As you all predicted, Lovely Husband was very pleased with his bits of sweater. Although he did keep asking ‘It is big enough though, isn’t it?’. I would suggest knitting it too small would be a rookie error, but I’ll keep my mouth shut just in case.
Of course, now the cat was out of the bag – or rather the sweater out of the box – I was free to knit it in front of him. We’d been spending the day at Lovely Littlest’s, so on the drive home I knitted happily away beside him.
Unfortunately, so excited was I about being able to knit without secrecy, I knitted too exuberantly and didn’t realise how much I’d done until I’d knitted twenty or so rows to much! Doh!
Will I ever finish?
