a disembodied sleeve

Each Wednesday, I post a snapshot of the projects I’m working on, and where my brain is at.

I’ve been steadily knitting away on the body of my Fairchild sweater, and have almost reached the hem. But at this point the project is fairly large and bulky, which doesn’t make it ideal Thanksgiving travel knitting. So I cast on for a sleeve, which is far more purse & travel friendly.

The Shawl Geometry Book Three update continues slowly.

bits & pieces, and a sweater body

Each Wednesday, I post a snapshot of the projects I’m working on, and where my brain is at.

This week has been one of those weeks where I feel like I’ve done a ton of things, but the only thing I have to show for it is more progress on the body of a sweater. I feel like everything else this week has been tying up loose ends, or making tweaks, or waiting on something to come back with notes, or running errands, or other small bits and pieces like that. And it’s amazing how much time those things take!

Regardless, I’m still managing to add a couple inches to my sweater each night, and so it’s coming along nicely.

all in all a quite week of knitting

Each Wednesday, I post a snapshot of the projects I’m working on, and where my brain is at.

Pretty quiet week this week.

I spent a couple evenings working away on my Fairchild sweater by Bristol Ivy. I’ve split for the armholes, and am now working on the increases in the main body of the sweater. This pattern is fantastic mindless knitting, because it’s stockinette in the round with occasional increases, but there are some interest construction details to look forward to.

Shawl Geometry Book Three edits continue. They’re progressing, but agonizingly slowly.
