Knit Night: Still in the sweaters.
At this point I’m really only working on two projects.
I’ve made quite a bit of progress on the sweater for my nephew. I will finish the first sleeve cuff today, and then cast on for the second sleeve, which I will work on tonight. I’m loving how this one is coming out – it’s such a simple knit with just a few textural details.
The second sweater is one for me. Bulky yarn is making this one knit up fairly quickly, even if I only get through one lace repeat a night. As of last count I was about 11 or 12″ into the body so I have a few more lace repeats before I divide for front and back and things get interesting.
Finally, I did finish that first sock I was working on. I’m hoping to cast on and make decent progress on the second one this weekend.
I’ve decided to devote the rest of April to finishing some WIPs. I have mom’s blanket, a scarf, and another sweater that has been in hibernation. I’m not going to let myself cast on anything new with one exception: once the current socks are done I’m going to cast on a new pair with this fabulous yarn from Northbound Knitting that I could not resist.
