Wearing the old boyfriend

A very, very long time ago, I began knitting a cardigan for a skinny boyfriend. You know, the "maybe this is serious" moment when the relationship is probably doomed.

It was, and I put the knitting away, occasionally running across it in a decluttering stint during the intervening fifteen years, and squinting sideways at it as one does at some glaring, uncomfortable sight.

But a couple of months ago I joined Ravelry and was moved to log all my stashed yarns and all my works in progress, and the boyfriend sweater turned out to be 75% complete and in perfect, un-mothed, un-musty condition. So I took it up again, and I finished it last night.

I stuck girly pink buttons on it, rinsed and blocked it, and put it on this morning for the near-freezing ride to work. Warm, comfortable, and considerably less hassle than the boyfriend.

Those who've been reading my journal for any length of time may note that this is the first picture of me you have ever seen here. This is...some kind of milestone.
