reverb Prompt: Make

Prompt: Make. What was the last thing you made? What materials did you use? Is there something you want to make, but you need to clear some time for it?

The last thing I made and the thing I want to make are the same thing. I’m working on making a black cardigan sweater.

Everyone needs a black cardigan. I’m so tired of getting a sweater, having it not be quite it, and then it falling apart. I also wanted to get away from buying something. I wanted to be really conscious about making something that I’d love, want to take really good care of so, it would last. I went to a ‘green’ yarn shop with a book of patterns my mom gave me and spent 100$ on black cotton yarn. I’ve been slowly knitting it on wooden needles for about 6 months now. I’ve made the back and one of the front sides. I’m nearly done with the other fronts side. I am really hoping to finish it in time for wearing in cold weather.
