I'll tell you what is happening in this photo in a moment. First, I'd like to share one of my favorite ( if not completely true ) anecdotes. This link gives you the accurate, boring, story but I prefer my version.
During the space race of the 1960's, NASA realized they would need a pen whose ink could flow with out the aid of gravity. In typical American bureaucratic style, they spent years and millions to produce an anti gravity pen. The Russians, however, sent their cosmonauts into space with a pencil.
So, Comrades, while most of you simply knit a test gauge swatch that measures a neat 4 by 4 inches, I spend weeks producing the world's largest swatch: my Cozy V- Neck sweater. Please refer to the photo again. See the sweater finished save an arm and a collar band? I did finish the arm which has since morphed into the neck of 28thirty. I am hoping this one will stick.
