Try Again, Then Stop

I spent Friday thinking about my slog sweater and it just made me sad. So much has changed since I cast on. I’ve had my heart broken a few times, my life went down other paths than the one I was hoping for as I was knitting it. I pulled it out today. The yarn is gorgeous, the knitting well executed, the fit not that great, the memories sad. I’ve gotten rid of it. I’m keeping the two untouched balls of yarn for a pair of mittens but the sweater and knitting is gone. I cast on a new sweater to cleanse the pallet and will pick a different UFO to slog. Maybe my next oldest, Anemoi Mittens tossed aside for untidy decreases back in 2007
