Work-in-progress Wednesday :: Sleeve Island

It’s not so much that I’m stuck on Sleeve Island as it is that I have been here longer than I’d like and I’m ready to be done. I find knitting sleeves so tedious once the body is done – both because it seems like I should be done with the sweater already and because I hate having the bulk of the body to deal with (i.e., continually turn and rearrange) while doing the small circumference knitting of the sleeves. But I need to just quit my whining and finish up already.

I am to the point of adding the stripes to the sleeve, then the ribbing, and then it’s on to the second sleeve. I would love to be done with this by the end of this coming weekend, because I am ready to move on to Spring things!

  1. I started knitting my current sweater about the same time you started this one. I’m still doing that first sleeve too. The only difference is that mine is for a baby! So I am incredibly impressed at your knitting speed.

    I can’t wait to see both boys in their sweaters. 🙂

  2. I’m not stuck on sleeve island – I’m stuck on leg island! All I have to do is finish knitting this stuffed animal’s leg and then I can stuff it and be done, but I swear it feels like the legs are taking longer than the whole rest combined!
