I almost have a sweater: the sleeves are done and ready to be put on. And, like with almost everything I do, I am stalling because I am afraid it won’t look good. But I know I can’t just have two sleeves lying around like loose body parts so I guess I will be sewing them on the body this weekend.
And also there in the picture is the yarn for my next socks.
I guess this is a pretty small start but you have to start somewhere and here I have the cast-on and the set-up row for the toes. I have been using larger needles for the last couple of weeks so my hands are having to adjust to how small these are. Always a challenge.
I started working on the pockets and have them almost ready, also. You know, I may just have a sweater before the end of the month.
But while I wait on that finish I must show today’s finish. These are the softest socks I have made. They are the only reason I am looking forward to cooler weather.
Now, if anyone is looking for good help around the house I can recommend these two. This was the scene when I got out of the shower earlier this week. I guess they got tired of waiting for me. And they didn’t even make up the bed!
My plans for the weekend are to finish my pockets and begin mattress stitching the sweater parts together. I also plan on buying two bookcases as part of my new wall of fabric: I must get all that fabric off of the cutting table so I can get going on quilting projects.
And I hope your plans are to check out other people’s knitting projects over at Patchwork Times. Gari
