FO: Big Old Sweatshirt

Finished, just in time for such a lovely spring-ish day that I even ate lunch outside on the deck.

It’s just what I wanted – soft, cozy, loose-fitting. Just right for lounging around the house. I increased the size of the upper sleeve a bit from my original sweater, and that turned out not to be such a great idea after all, as I think they’re a bit too big now. It wouldn’t have been quite so bad if I hadn’t also made a calculation error, and finished my sleeve increases too soon. But it’s not a big enough issue for me to feel the need to reknit the tops of the sleeves. Ravelry notes here.

Meanwhile, I’m enjoying the beautiful sunshine that has been a bit of a rarity so far this year. Yes, we still have plenty of snow on the ground, but it’s melting quickly.

More snow is predicted for mid-week, but at this time of year, it usually doesn’t stay around too long.

    You have something cozy and lovely to wear. Nice work! The sun has been a rare commodity this year. Hopefully we’ll starting seeing more of it after today’s fog, that is.

    OOh boy that looks cozy. I haven’t had a lounge-around sweatshirt in years, mostly because I haven’t needed one. Now I feel like I must obtain one immediately.

    I heard birds chirping as I left the house for work this morning — first time this year. Such a wonderful sound!! Spring is on the way! Great, comfy sweater.
