I somehow managed to knit a sweater!
Finished making this last week. I'm now lost with what to do.
I’m a 33 year old dad who just took up knitting. I was tired of my idle time being spent staring at my phone. It’s not much, but I think I’ve got the basics down.
I’m the new knitter dad in my 30s who posted a sloppy grey swatch a week ago. This is my first real work in progress, a scarf for my son.
FIRST SWEATER ALERT! It took me an entire year but I finally finished a sweater for myself!
I made a lacey shawl for my sister, but I had to try it on myself first.

I saw the adorable knit fox stole, and thought you know what would be even cuter? A Possum! I was wrong.
Every morning I knit on my way to work. A young girl, who has been riding the same bus on her way to school, has sat across me and stared in amazement. Today she sat next to me, pulling out her own yarn. She wants to learn how to make what I have been knitting. My heart is so full!
Thought you’d all enjoy this!
Made a crop top because KP stopped making the color I was using for my sweater!
I’m so happy with how my sweater turned out. 🥰
