Transverse finished!!

My beautiful sweater is finished, and it took less than three months! That's not to shabby at all for a fingering weight garment. I was really paranoid about how it was going to grow when I blocked it, but it worked out fine. It's a little bigger than I would like but it isn't so... Continue Reading →

After yesterday's cuff trouble I set this down for a bit and didn't do too much on it. I did, however, get the cuff started correctly. Now I just have a dozen rounds or so of plain ribbing before I'm done. If nothing else goes wrong I should definitely have this finished over the weekend!

Well I guess it was bound to happen eventually. I was getting so close to being done, but ended up having to rip back pretty much everything I did today, all because of the split cuff. It is a very pretty detail, with a tiny bit of overlap right at the split. Yesterday I struggled... Continue Reading →

It is amazing how fast the sleeves feel when you switch from two-at-a-time to only working on one. I got everything done except the bind-off. There was one tricky spot where there is some overlap for the split cuff, but otherwise everything went very smoothly. My plan is to wait until I get the other... Continue Reading →

Transverse progress (18)

I didn't post yesterday due to the holiday, but I did get some major progress done on my sweater over the weekend. The bottom hem is completely done, and I am mostly finished with the sleeves as well. All that is left now is the cuffs of the sleeves. I really enjoyed the split hem... Continue Reading →

A major milestone has been reached! I started the bind-off for this half of the hem. I tried on the sweater and it is plenty long, so I decided to go with a 2" rib instead of 3". Now I just have to somehow get through the tubular bind-off without dying of boredom. Then knit... Continue Reading →

The problem with swapping back and forth between two very large projects is that sometimes you can go days before it looks like you've made much progress on either of them. I did at least finish with another colorway on this section. Now that I have three separate pieces all progressing at different rates I... Continue Reading →

The end is in sight, sort-of! I haven't spent much time on this today but I did get some of the ribbing started. It is a little deceptive because there's a split hem, so I've only done this ribbing on the back half of the sweater so far. It still means I'm in the home... Continue Reading →

I'm at the short rows!! I finished colorway number 19 and tried everything on. It turns out that the length was plenty for my taste. In fact, I'm a little concerned now about the sweater growing when blocked. I still decided to do the short rows in the back, mostly because I've never done short... Continue Reading →

I didn't get any more work done on my wingspan this week, but that just means I made a lot of progress on this sweater. According to my notes I should be pausing after I finish the current colorway to try it on again and see how much more length is needed. There's not a... Continue Reading →

Here's my mid-week sweater progress check-in. I finished off one mini and have just started on the next one. That makes three minis used up already this month and we're barely over a week in. I don't want to jinx myself but at this rate I could be done with this project before March. I... Continue Reading →

Transverse progress (11)

I spent a bunch of time working on this sweater over the weekend and got through one and a half minis. Even though I am very nervous about running out of yarn, I made the decision that I wanted something closer to full length sleeves. I'm still not sure whether I will use the cuff/ribbing...
