I’m hoping the title comes off less as a reference to “it’s clobberin’ time” and more towards “a stitch in time saves nine.” Or does that even make sense? True, the latter isn’t a perfect fit because sewing this up isn’t preventative, it’s necessary, and to be quite honest my sewing skills are so rudimentary that Thing could probably do a better job.
I actually finished knitting up all these pieces nearly two weeks ago, but put off the seaming until now. As I write this, I’m waiting for half the pieces to finish blocking (sleeves, hood, and pockets) because I have so little room for just leaving cotton knits to dry. Given another two, three days for the remaining half, as well as a few frustrated days of sewing… well, here’s to hoping I finish this within the next two weeks! With autumn quick on our heels, I’ve still got a few other sweater/cardigan works-in-progress that have been neglected for far too long.
