Progress in 10

I’m always working on some project or another, and most weeks I talk about what I’m working on Wednesdays as part of Tami’s WIP Wednesday project. You can see other WIP Wednesdays … here.

I usually work with tiny yarn on tiny needles, and it usually takes awhile to see much progress. So I think this sweater is a little magical. (This is the sweater that I inherited from a friend who was just over it.)

I can knit for 10 minutes and complete more than part of a round. Especially now that I’m working on the sleeves, and a round takes about a minute.

The plan is to work about 6 inches of black ribbing at the end of each sleeve. Then pick up and knit up one front, around the neck, and down the other front, knit a couple inches to make a band/collar, then add a chunky zipper.

Maybe I’ll finish in time to wear it this year.

  1. That’s going to be a great-looking sweater. And I totally know the feeling, when you’re switching from a beaded lace shawl or similar (where one round takes you a couple of hours to knit) to something chunky. You sit down with a cup of coffee and when it’s empty you go: “Whoa! Did I produce all those inches of knitting just now?”

  2. An inherited sweater? WOW! That’s fantastic. I’m mostly fond of little stitches on tiny needles too. It does take longer to achieve recognizable progress, but gosh the fabric is so pretty!

    1. It was inherited from a friend who was almost done with it, but hated how it looked on her.

      I agree that the fabric created at a small gauge is totally worth the effort.
