Sweater Progress Yarn Along


Poor Frodo, he's trying to ignore me and the sweater but was too lazy to jump off the sofa.  I am closing in on the last row of the body of the sweater.  Today will be sleeve knitting and this sweater has been such a fun knit.  I love all the miles of stockinette stitch or ribbing.  I'm thinking of doing the sleeves NOT in the round...because my gauge tends to tighten up a bit and it just seems so s l o w.  I'll keep you up to date on that one.

I finished The Violets of March yesterday and it was a quick easy good read.  I recommend the book and there's a family secret mystery that is solved (gotta love those!).  I am still reading Oh My Stars and it's coming along.  I read this one at night and I tend to fall asleep while reading.

I am having a giveaway over here for all you lovely readers to celebrate my birthday month.

  7. I am on the sleeves of Emerson's sweater and you are so right, it's slow going. My gauge seems a lot tighter now too and I never considered just knitting them flat and seaming, thanks for another wonderful time.
    Frodo looks too cute not looking at the camera.

  9. I am facing the same issue - or I will be by the end of the week. I love to knit my sleeves in the round but my gauge does change. I try to just knit a bit looser and it seemed to help on the last sweater I knit.

  32. Hi there Karen,
    I've just been catching up on all the posts I've missed recently. I had to giggle at your nightmare and then felt so guilty when you were crying...how could I be so cruel. But it was funny.I hope you haven't had any more since though.
    Your cardigan is flying along... all being well it looks as though you will be wearing it on Thanksgiving.
    Have a lovely weekend and a great birthday. It's mine this weekend too.
