The tactleneck is now 2/3rds complete. The back and the sleeves are done. It’s all coming along swimmingly! So much so that I decided I should take a break to knit something for myself as well. All that altrustic knitting was just too much. (Truth be told, the miles of 2×2 ribbing in heavy aran yarn was starting to take its toll on my wrists. I love that boy of mine, but I’m not giving myself RSIs for him!)
So I cast on a ‘light’ project. A simple casual T-shirt made from Sirdar Luxury Soft Cotton Dk on Knit Pro’s wooden needles. That’s a combination that weighs practically nothing.
And then this happened.
What is this?? I bought these to make the Noble Cowl on, and they haven’t been used since! How does a girl go about getting a refund on these?
So I took it as a sign that I should make a start on that cardigan idea I came up with for Design Week a while back. Here is half a sleeve!
I’m very much in the habit of starting with the sleeves when I make a top. It’s a quick little milestone and often the most boring part. The pattern that I’m planning for the front is being saved ’til last.
Other important news: The Knit and Crochet Blog Week is next week! I am going to be bringing a daily post to you and each one will be filled with knitty goodness. Happy writing to everyone else who’s taking part!
