so i have been making a ridiculous number of hats (see http://katydidhats.tumblr.com/) and i mean a ridiculous number, like 28 and a half. (exact number) so i had created enough that i had at least a sweater's worth of hats, which made me think i should just make a sweater. i was unsure about what to put on it, but finally i settled on a poem by my favorite poet, dorothy parker.

the poem i used was "anecdote":

So silent I when Love was by
He yawned, and turned away;
But Sorrow clings to my apron-strings,
I have so much to say.

here is my sweater!







here are some action shots:





(i also made that hat, but that is a post for another time!)

i want to take a picture of all of the knitting i have created since about the end of december (which is 28 1/2 hats, one sweater, and three gloves) but i have yet to. maybe this picture is forthcoming!

I love all the colors, and the way the sleeves match, but don't match! It looks amazing.  Smiley
