I have not had near enough time to knit recently. I planned on getting more done last week, but when the sweet corn is ready, it’s ready. I like to put up lots of sweet corn, so I took two days off of everything else and did nothing but corn. The second round should be ready late this week so I have to knit like crazy the next few nights. Doesn’t it drive you mad when you are so close to finishing a project only to be too busy to knit. It’s almost enough to make me cuss. Anyway, I have maybe three inches to go before beginning the second sleeve and then it’s a pretty quick round and round and ready for the trim.
I have tweaked just a bit and did a three needle bind-off on the first side and knit the sleeve in the round. So much easier than seaming when finished. I am not a big fan of seaming and I like the idea of being done when I’m done. I am going to take out the last few rows of the sleeve and do it over on a smaller needle. I think my gauge loosened when I went to purl and I don’t like how loose/big the sleeve ends.
Anybody notice the coffee mug in the background? That’s the newest from Knit Happy, the Bright Sips Mug, in yellow. Click the link to see all five bright colors.
I had to come back and edit this to add that the Diva Bundles are in stock! These are so pretty. I’d like to buy a bunch just to hang up and look at.
