Day 28. Yes, it’s the grand finale of the Bang Out a Hadley knitalong, and I am WRUNG. OUT. The Hadleys, O the Hadleys!
We have laughed, cried, and coveted our way through this month of epic colorwork and camaraderie.
We pause today to remember, reflect, and contemplate the fact that one pattern can take a bunch of knitters all over the place. The gallery above represents only part of the journey we have all traveled. The full trip is over in The Lounge, where intrepid knitters have chronicled their yarn choices, design modifications, highs, lows, and in betweens. There’s a lot to learn over there, and the finishers will be crossing the finish line for a while.
To be clear: I am still Banging. I have not completed Banging. I’m OK, down there in the pits of my Hadley. I joined the two sleeves to the body while watching the Oscars, glad to discover that, yeah, somebody else (Price Waterhouse) has trouble keeping a tote bag organized.
(That is easily one of the most amazing examples of You Had One Job.)
Thanks to everyone who has Banged Out a Hadley. We’re about to embark on our next odyssey, and it’s a doozy: A Year of Techniques, which will commence March 1.
As in: tomorrow!
We have a lot to learn.
