OPAM... Will I won't I ??

One of my WIPs is this cardigan for me.  I started it in September 2013, and although it is an easy knit to do, I have had other things to get done as well.
Typically as a mother and wife I have sewn and knitted for family rather than for me and there were Christmas makes as well..  But I was very happy to do other things.
 
On my needles is the first sleeve nearly finished and then just the other one to do. I AM going to finish this by the end of February.. But and it's a big but;  I visited my DD yesterday and she wants me to knit the fingerless gloves she has not been able to do.. so I think I will have to do those first!
 
Daughters come first!!
Happy Days..

Hi Chris! I'm a new follower. Love your cardigan so far! I only learned to knit a couple of years ago and I haven't graduated to pieces of clothing yet. Can't wait to see this develop!

My Mum used to make us matching sweaters/cardigans when we were younger. I have not mastered the art of knitting - I can manage straight lines but that's about it.

You are a great mother. Your sweater is lovely. I think you will still get it done soon even if you make those darling gloves for your daughter. love Annette

Thank you for your kind comments Chris. I am glad you now know the history to the hymn. I had to come here as you are a no-reply commenter. You can change that on your dashboard if you want to.
