Can’t finish without the finishing

I have a finished sweater! All the pieces sewn up together, and all the ends woven in – ta-da! My Reverse Me cardigan is officially entirely off the needles, and…well, ready to be packed away safely to be worn next winter. But still! It’s done, and now the part of my brain that’s been thinking […]
