Raglan Sweater

"Properly practiced knitting
 soothes the troubled spirit,
 and it doesn't hurt the
 untroubled spirit either."

~Elizabeth Zimmermann

The book title isn't quite true:
tears have been shed.
The wonderful community
of Ravelry answered all
my questions and now
I am once again on my
way to knitting my
very first sweater.

The body is almost complete:
A sleeve has been cast on
with one more to go:
A neck and some ribbing:
the weaving of threads:
A Soak and a block
and it will be ready to wear.

A troubled spirit soothed. xx
