I am alive, yes - Sleeveless autumn "over-all" pullover :)

Dear friends!

Yes, I am clearly still alive. I am so ashamed that I haven't posted a thing since December. It's really been a problem of time and... impulse. What I mean is: when you have a project on the needles and you start working on it... and when you start losing the inspiration and, eventually, the wishes to finish it... you know what I am talking about. This was on the needles since AUGUST 2008 (Geez). I had promised it. And little by little I tried to complete the back of the sweater. This extermely HARD pattern I got in Germany was twice as complicated to understand because it was in German, and I have learned to knit in English. So, go figure! Plus, the pattern was quite a complicated one with a lot of counting and reverse purling and stuff... yikes!

So, when I finished the back, it felt like a huge stone. But then, I had to do the front. I tried to use as many dead hours as possible (waiting during rehearsals, etc., causing the smiles and curious looks of my colleagues) -- and that was it. I really couldn't find the guts to go for the sleeves. It felt like it would have been ENDLESS. SO this is why I decided to take this off the needles and sew. Basta. Ciao. Just a sleeveless pullover, after all the super hard work on the pattern. It looks nice, especially since the shoulders were supposed to be weird in the pattern, with two slopes and button holes (!)... which I also camouflaged with kitsch yellow ribbons. Oh la la. C'est comme ça! --- So this is it, girls! I feel like I can start my knitting life again now. This project was like a curse on the needles. It prevented me from knitting anything else for months (except the armwarmers, see previous post) --- and I never felt like finishing it, so you see the results!

My blog friends must have thought I had quit the blog! I am so sorry :(

So, here it is.
Hope you like it.

Please, give me a sign that you are still there reading this :)

Un besote, ah, y me alegro mucho de que por fin hayas terminado con esta labor que te traía loco. Ahora ya puedes volver a tu vida habitual de tejedor, jejejejeje. Y a ver si te vemos más a menudo, ¿vale? Muakkkkkkkkk

I love your project. I can imagine how difficult it must have been, but you have done wonderful work on it and to not give up is a great thing.

It's good to see you back, Flavio! I keep checking once a week or so and today was my lucky day :)
