You know when you think something is going be easy and quick but, in reality it’s taking 5 times longer than you intially estimated?
That’s how the sleeves for my Mom’s sweater are going right now. Granted I am knitting both sleeves at the same time so, that could be why it seems to be taking FOREVER . It’s not like I didn’t make progress on them. I’m at the point where I finish my increases and I’m knitting in stockingette stitch until I reach 18″, then I will do the raglan decreases until they are finished. THEN I can seam the sweater and finish it up with the boarders. I might break my rules of this being a weekend only project… I just really want these sleeves done!!!
The Calgary Flames booties are like 20 minutes from being done but, I can’t find my yellow and white yarn for the stripes. I’m almost positive this is due to the mini-he hiding my yarn so,it could be anywhere! I’m loving how they look though!
I’ve also been addicted to making freeze pop cozies . I’m using cotton yarn this time. I love how quick these are. I can make one in about 10 minutes now.
The last project I’m working on his week is a mermaid blanket . I have an order for two of these blankets and since my crochet skills aren’t as good as my knitting skills, I figured I would make the small version of this blanket as a trial run. Wish me luck!! ( thank goodness there is YouTube video tutorial )
I’m excited for this weeks projects and I would to hear what’s on your needles ( or hooks) , so feel free to comment and let me know what your working on.
Thanks for reading!!
