Today I have a finished object to show you that has a very special meaning for me. I started it in the final week of writing my MSc dissertation, when things were not good. It was one of the four things I did in that week: write, panic, knit, eat. At moments it seemed like a very good metaphor of the state of my dissertation. When I saw it progress, it sort of gave me strength and made me believe that I could achieve the same with the mess of sentences on my computer screen.
And then I stopped. There was no more time for breaks, just work work work, a sleepless night, and finally, a dissertation submitted. It was, without a doubt, one of the greatest challenges I’ve ever faced.
Finishing this cardigan now, several months later (due to some problems finding the proper DPNs), I feel as if the chapter finally closes. And it went well. BIG sigh of relief. :) So I present to you: Liesl (and its happy and relieved owner – yes, this one stays with me!).
I’ll write more on the project details some other time… Let this be more of an hommage to that other, typed, FO that was being made alongside it. :)
And if you’re really dying to see more photos, you can find them on the Rav project page. ;)
