a sweater!

Hello hello! Over the weekend, I finished knitting my moss green oatmeal pullover. I love this green! A lot.
I think I started knitting this in February, when it was still legitimately cold enough for warm sweaters, but then I ended up ripping it back, starting over and knitting a larger size.
And so, here we are in March, almost April, wearing a nice thick wool pullover. But at least when fall comes I will be ready to bust this baby out of the closet.
I'm kinda bummed now that I didn't just go with the smaller size that I started with, as this sweater is supposed to be smallish and fitted. And mine is kind of too big. But this was such a quick and easy knit that I can totally see myself making another one soon. (And it only uses 3-ish balls of Wool Ease Chunky ... so it's super economical.) Next time I'll knit it in black or gray ... or both ... and one size down. It's such a great everyday sweater and I can see myself wearing this a lot. Super stoked to have it done and off my mile-long to-knit list.
