Speaking of neglected projects… My burgundy cardigan wasn’t the old project I dug out recently. After wrapping up a few projects, I gave my Christmas sweater some much needed attention. According to the schedule I set up for myself, I should have all of the parts knit and just the finishing left to do, but that’s obviously not what happened. I just didn’t have as much for-fun knitting time this summer and fall. Between July and early November, all I knit was the ribbing on my front. Everything else you see, all that colorwork, I did in the last two week.
I’m hoping to finish the front next week and get my three completed pieces blocked and seamed so I can see if the sleeve is long enough. I discovered that I wouldn’t have enough yarn for the second sleeve, so I ended up ordering more, which means that I will definitely have enough yarn if I end up needing to lengthen the sleeves. I’d like to have the whole sweater finished in time for my knitting group’s holiday party mid-December, but I’m not entirely sure if I’ll be able to make that happen. I will definitely have it done in time for Christmas, though! I’m determined to get it done.
