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.

Again this is Simon and Simona by Elena Nodel knit out of Miss Babs Yowza in Shaken, Not Stirred.

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.

Again this is Wolf River by Melissa Schaschwary, knit from a kit I purchased from Craftsy including their house yarn, Cloudborn Fibers Bulky Wool Twist in Slate Heather.

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.

  1. I love your commitment to not cast on any new projects in April. I think I’m going to do the same 🙂
