I have learned a couple of things while knitting sleeves. The more you decrease the faster they go. Which makes sense - less stitches, less knitting. I also learned I have short arms. Guess that goes with my short legs. They suggested 17 inches for the arms. I had to stop at 14.
My fear of running out yarn is gone. I still have 5 skeins left. It took less that 2 for the sleeve. All that is left is the button band and collar. I'm confident I shouldn't have to make a phone call to Knit Picks like a crazy lady.
It's really difficult to photograph this blob right now. Oh - and it's huge. I'm OK with that because I wanted a nice oversize sweater. I'm almost afraid to block it in fear that it will stretch to the floor.
It is now getting way too big to be a traveling project. So my Halloween socks are getting some love too.
Nicole and I went to Bingo this week in honor of my mother in law who passed away a couple of months ago. It was one of her favorite things to do. I was hoping Nicole would be able to experience this with her one day after she turned 18 but it didn't happen. Bingo stories of my mother in law are hilarious and we talked about it all night. It was a great way to remember her.
Joining Ginny on this beautiful Wednesday.
