My “two week sweater” efforts are continuing, dear knitter friends, as I continue knitting away, and trying to make up for a bit more non-knitting weekend time than I might have liked. Although non-knitting time does assist in, you know, helping one’s arms and wrists not to fall off, so there is that.
So far I’ve gotten a large portion of the body done – though I will need another couple of inches on that before I join it up to make the final yoke – and have started the second sleeve. All in all this is pretty good progress, I must admit.
Will I make it to a finished sweater by Friday? Well, I’d be lying if I said I was completely confident about that, but having the arbitrary goal is getting me knitting on it pretty briskly, so I am pleased with that.
I’ve had personal sweater goals like this before, but they were usually attached to things like Rhinebeck or travelling deadlines when I wanted to be able to wear the finished thing. This one is a bit more arbitrary, but still good – I think sometimes it’s easy to get mired in all the things that need to get done that we slow down, and a deadline helps pick up the pace.
Maybe I’ll have a finished sweater by the end of the week – or darned close to one? Fingers crossed either way.
Do you have knitting goals for the current season? I hope that you’ve got something fun to get absorbed in.
Happy Tuesday, knitter friernds!
