Yarn Yawn

Whoever coined the phrase "I'll be glad to see the back of that!" clearly never knitted a cardigan.

  1. Sweaters... I have never knit one, but there are many in my queue. My plan to get through the endless stockinette is to do it while watching television, listening to knitting podcasts, riding in the car, or meeting up with friends in a café. It's the way I get through knitting a sock with a boring stitch pattern.
