Although socks are edging their way back onto the racetrack over here at Knitting to Stay Sane, sweater knitting has certainly not been abandoned, never fear. The ‘two-week sweater’ did indeed turn into a ‘three-week sweater’, which is super awesome in my world.
While it cuts a less imposing figure on the dress form (try as I might I just can’t make it pretend to have my shoulders), I think it’s going to be a nice light and casual spring/summer pullover, which is exactly what I was going for. I remembered last summer when I was working in an air-conditioned office how few fingering weight sweaters I had, and how nice they are for transitional seasons in any case.
So, I wasted no time in starting a cardigan buddy for this one, and I am prepared to love it even more. I am coveting the idea of having more light sweaters in my wardrobe, so that is fuelling my desire to finish it just as quickly and get it into wearable form before too long.
It’s been a busy week behind the scenes lately, with lots of to-and-fro-ing of various kinds, so one of those weeks where just keeping in a bit of knitting time is all good. The rows start to stack up gradually as long as you keep knitting them, thank goodness.
I hope you’re knitting something fun this week, blog friends! Until next time.
