It’s a sleeve!

Okay, I know a lot of you have probably knit dozens and dozens of sleeves in your time, so the fact that I finished one measly sleeve might not seem very newsworthy. But this is my first sweater! And I’ve finished my first sleeve! This feels like a major accomplishment. I’m one step closer to a whole sweater. Of course at the rate I’m going, I’ll be lucky to finish it by fall when the weather gets chilly again, but that’s okay.

Actually, it turned out knitting a sleeve wasn’t all that different from knitting my legwarmers (except that I’m double stranding Gloss Lace and adding in stripes of Bayou Shimmer instead of just using one strand of worsted weight yarn).



I’ve been getting lots of moral support from the Classic Lines Cardigan KAL. If you’re thinking about knitting this sweater, I highly suggest you come join us. It’s lots of fun! Next up- the body! <
