It only took 2 skeins of the Big Ball Chunky Yarn.
$35 for a sweater.
Not too bad.
It’s just blocking now, I’ll try and get some action shots when it’s dry and I have installed the zipper. Yes, it’s getting a zipper. If I wanted button bands I would need a third skein. Button bands aren’t worth a third skein. I almost never close the cardigans so closure isn’t super important.
I do close my sweaters with zippers more often then I do the ones with buttons. There has to be something psychological in that. Something like why I need a big spoon to eat cereal and a small spoon to eat ice cream. I can’t seem to ever close a cardi with buttons and I’d have to be hard up for a spoon to use a big one on ice cream. There are other oddities or idiocincracies that I have. We don’t want to expose the crazy all in one day.
A little crazy each day keeps the boobie hatch at bay.
If you wanted to see a bigger photo of the Stockinette ladies, I’ve adjusted the post so if you click on it, the photo is nice and big – you can see all the projects they did.
