I’ll be honest. When I went to photograph this sleeve this morning, I was a little disappointed. I thought that I had completed more than I have. It’s really not much more than a cuff right now, but oh well. At least it’s a nice cuff.
It’s just been so nice and sunny and warm (ish… it’s still hovering around 50, but I’ll take what I can get), I’ve just not been in the mood to knit like I do in the winter.
Still, I’m making progress. I’ve cast on for the cuff and am increasing 1 stitch at the beginning and end of every other RS row. So far, I think it’s going well, but of course I’ve got quite a way to go before I know for sure that the sleeve is the right size. (I probably won’t know for sure until I block it out, honestly.)
But I’m still cruising along. I’m just crossing my fingers that it still fits my kid next winter, since I seem to have missed the cold-weather window.
How often do you miss the season for your WIPs?
I don’t even attempt to knit seasonally – knitwear is good here for autumn, winter and spring so the time for wearing will come round again pretty quickly!
And that is why I don’t knit for kids. My granddaughter is only 18 months. I’ll be waiting until she is at least 4 before knitting her a sweater. I knit one last year as a test knit. Never again.
