I was going to wait to put this topic up once I got the pictures in place, but that has proved to allow me to procrastinate even longer.
I am working on a sweater for my mother. I’ve finished the back and the front and 1 sleeve. I did the front and 1 sleeve this past week.
I’ve got 1 sleeve, and the mock collar (which is a HUGE amount of knitting) to do.
Plus, at this point all the finishing. Once I have the other sleeve knit, I will do all the finishing and pick up the mock collar.
Anyhow. So far, its been about 25 hours of knitting work.
And, because I started this project before I learned Continental knitting, I am having to do this American style. That frustrates me because I know I could be done it the other way, but I don’t want to frog what I have done. And I can’t swatch it right in Continental.
I want to get this done by next week.
Then I have 3 other promised projects to do before I can do one for me. I have started turning down people’s requests. In 5 years, I’ve only knitted two things for me, and I am fed up with that!
