I liked Evie's slouchy hat so much I made one for myself.
All of the above were fairly quick knits, but I've had one project on the needles since August. My parents sent me money for my birthday last summer because I wanted to buy the yarn to make myself a cardigan. I chose a fairly straightforward pattern that is all garter stitch (knitting every row, no purling) because at the time I was still a beginner and it is knitted from side to side, instead of top to bottom or bottom up. I think it's taken so long partly because I keep getting sidetracked by the smaller projects and partly because it's just a LOT of knitting. I have had the sleeves on the needles for more than a month now, only knitting a few rows at a time. I'm hoping blogging about it will give me the push to get it done!
