Fluff Nugget Fix finished!

I'm skipping my blanket update for this week so I can share this finished project instead! It has not been re-blocked yet but otherwise it is all done. The sleeves ended up needing more length than I originally thought, but I am very happy with how they turned out. This cardigan is so squishy and... Continue Reading →

I'm over halfway through with the additional brioche rows, and I have become determined to finish this in time to meet my goal for the month. The thing that keeps getting in the way is the fact that because this is brioche, every finished row requires working the fabric twice. It makes everything feel like... Continue Reading →

I finished the first sleeve! Once it was bound off I tried it on, and I'm so much happier with the length now. I can't wait to get the other sleeve done and see how much better everything fits. I think I will end up wearing this so much more when I am happier with... Continue Reading →

This was my main knitting project over the weekend, and I think I am finally happy with the length. I measured before I cut the cuff off and estimated I would need about four extra inches. As I knit I kept trying it on and ended up going for almost six inches in total. Now... Continue Reading →

Fluff Nugget Cardigan finished!

It is finally done! The button band went very quickly, and I was all excited to be nearly done. Then I realized how much finishing was left to do. Luckily I had woven in most of my ends as I went along, but I stopped and checked to make sure I have everything woven in... Continue Reading →

As promised, I actually picked up the stitches for the button band right away. It doesn't look like much at the moment since I only managed 2 rows after that. On the one hand, this feels like a bit of a slog since I'm now working over even more stitches than the body of the... Continue Reading →

This photo looks very similar to the previous one, except for the part where both sleeves are finished now! It is really funny how much my motivation increases once I can actually see the finish line of a project. It feels amazing to be done with all of the brioche. The sleeves seem a little...

Fluff Nugget progress (13)

This weekend I decided to make myself stop daydreaming about all the new projects I want to make and get back to the ones I already have on the needles. That ended up translating into a ton of progress on my cardigan. Last week I was only halfway through the first sleeve, and now I'm... Continue Reading →

Fluff Nugget Progress (12)

I've knit a few more rounds of this sleeve, but I think I'm still feeling the frustration of sleeve island. At least it is longer than it looks. I tried it on and it already reaches past my elbow. The pattern calls for knitting this fairly long, to create more of a balloon sleeve. I... Continue Reading →

Fluff Nugget Progress (11)

Welcome to Sleeve Island. I had heard of this phenomenon from other sweater knitters, but I did not experience it on any of the other sweaters I've made. Maybe it's the brioche that's the problem, but I am definitely getting sleeve fatigue already and I'm not even halfway through the first one. On my previous... Continue Reading →

Fluff Nugget progress (10)

I managed to get a few rows of the sleeve done. The brioche in the round is still going pretty slowly but at least I've had a few rounds of practice to help with that. I think it will continue to be a little slower than the flat sections just because there is some purling... Continue Reading →

I spent a lot of time working on my Fluff Nugget cardigan this weekend. I finished all the panels for the body and got everything seamed up. I've also picked up the stitches for the first sleeve. The next step is learning how to do brioche in the round, since it is different from doing... Continue Reading →
