I guess I should post a little update on my knitting since this is a knitting blog an all. 🙂
I haven’t been doing too much knitting, I’m afraid. My mom’s sweater has definitely crossed over into boring territory. That tends to happen when I work on big projects. I keep telling myself I’m not allowed to start something new until this dang thing is done, but I’m afraid I’m close to losing that fight. I try to rationalize straying by telling myself that the sweater won’t be useful until the winter, and that I have lots of time to start something new. See?! Someone save me from myself!
Above is a picture of the progress I did make. The body is done and on holders, and the first sleeve is over halfway done. I’ve got somewhere in the neighborhood of 5 more inches to go. I’m not even going to attempt to give you a timeline of when I think I’ll be done that sleeve, because I would just be lying.
Hopefully I can hold out and not start a new project like that hummingbird cross stitch kit I bought or items for my future Etsy shop. I’ll have plenty of time to work on those things after the sweater is done, right?
