December's Goal

I'm linking this post to Elm Street Quilts for One Monthly Goal.

Pattern: Evo by Natasja Hornby of Moonstruck Knits.

This sweater for my DH could have been finished three months ago, but wasn't!

All I have had to do is darn in the ends which are everywhere, and not just the two visible in the photo. The others are all on the inside, but nevertheless need to be finished off. The problem is I absolutely loathe darning in the tails in knitting: I've tried three techniques and they all give fiercely ugly results.  I'm sure when I was a teenager I got better results, but maybe I was just less critical! If anyone can point me to a foolproof tutorial I'd be so grateful.

I'm linking this to:


in the hope that DH will be wearing this before the end of the month.

I have seen a video on how to do what is called "the magic loop" which leaves no tails when you tie two pieces together - I have not tried it but intend to try and see - I do not like weaving ends in either

Well I can't help you with this but maybe you could find some help on Ravelry. Good luck with it. It's a really attractive sweater.

Good luck with your goal - you'll be so happy you did it - when you've done it :-)

I can appreciate the work behind this as my mom is a avid knitter and lucky me as I'm the recipient of her many projects....included a new pair of my very favorite knitted slippers for Christmas! :)
