Knitting: 1930s “3 Hour Sweater” Finished!

I attempted to knit this 1930s 3-hour sweater once and never finished it. It was the first thing I ever tried to knit (no scarves for this bitch, I dove right into the deep end) and it ended up being a disaster – mistakes all over the place, and the sleeves were a nightmare.

With a year of knitting under my belt I decided to give it another go.

This time around went…not much more smoothly. The pattern looks easy enough. Knitting the body is easy enough. (3 hours my ass. Ahem.) But the sleeves, again, are just dumb.

The finishing touch was to sew a vintage button onto the keyhole neckline and call it a day.

This was knitted (for the most part, anyway) while watching seasons 1 and 2 of ‘Pushing Daisies.’  Which was fantastic and I am very upset  that there were only ever 2 seasons made before it was cancelled. I really don’t know why I feel the need to tell everyone what I watch while knitting. It’s my special I Get To Watch Whatever I Want Because I Am Making Clothing With Yarn And Sticks Time.

Sharing is caring.

  1. Congratulations on completing your sweater. I cannot even believe you thought that would be an easy first project as it looks highly complex. Bet it feels good to complete these winter projects and, hopefully, that means warm weather is just around the corner.

  2. Congrats! Wow, I could seriously NEVER do that. That's determination though, to pick it back up again after all that time. I love the color, too.
