Back to Reality

It's amazing what five hours of knitting will get you. What's not amazing is the progress made after a couple of subway rides.

The sleeve looks little different than when we last had a look. My goal here is to finish this sleeve, and then to put down this knit for a while. It's not that I don't find this sweater anything but a guilty pleasure. I owe someone mittens. I haven't forgotten about that. But, I don't want to leave a half-finished sleeve on my needles. I know myself too well. I know that I'll forget where I was in the pattern if I let things go for a week or two.

 

Not to mention that little line of distorted stitches that you get when you leave a piece on the needles for a few days... But that usually doesn't happen on a circular. I hope you'll show us pics of the raffle winners modeling their prizes!

Sweater looks great. Is there a reason why you didn't work both sleeves up at the same time? I know, it takes longer; however, when you've completed them, you're really done!

It's looking wonderful. I am the same way with something on the needles, I'm more likely to leave it sitting too long.

:) and i'm sure that someone can't wait to get their mittens!

I am SO totally looking forward to my mittens! My weenie little fingerless "cheats" that I knitted up for myself just aren't cutting it in this Arctic front that came in today!

Smart lady! I never think to do that -- the UFO just gets shoved in a closet and every detail related to it dribbles right out of my head.
