The Epic Adventure as reached its climactic conclusion. The Max Suit is finally complete, and not a moment too soon. Because of recent events, I was thrown into a funk and didn’t knit for over a month. Not a stitch. And seeing as to how this suit needed to be completed for Halloween, this lack of knitting was a massive problem.
It came down to a situation in which I told my friend that there is a chance his suit wouldn’t be finished on time. And you know what he said?
“I’ll wear it one-armed, that’s cool.”
I’ll wear it one-armed, that’s cool.
This statement alone gave me the drive and determination to knit an entire arm in a single day, complete with the distractions of grocery shopping, working and moving some.
The result? A finished Max Suit. A hood, two legs, two soles, two arms. An adult-sized pair of footie-pajamas, basically.
We made a tail out of garland and found some bunny ears to put on top (Kind of lame, but totally cost- and time-efficient)
I bought 15 skeins of Berroco Vintage (Ravelry link) and ended up using a smidge less than 13, so I’ve got two full balls that I can use for other projects. I’m going to call this yarn estimation a success, given the size of the project. There are more Ravelry details here.
This is the biggest project I have completed to date, and I am so glad I did. It was the experience of a lifetime and I am proud of it. What are you’re epic projects? How did you feel during the process and after?
