Hence Sweater – WIP #3

Hence WIP Body Complete

The body of my sweater is done!  I still need to knit the arms, block everything, seam everything, knit the neckline, and finally sew on the bottoms.  Maybe I’m not all that close to done after all! I am still excited because it’s starting to look like a sweater.

Some of the arms need to be done flat but the majority is worked in the round.  I’m going to try and do those portions of the arms at the same time.  I’ve also found some buttons I like but they’re a bit bigger than called for in the pattern.  Hopefully they work out.  I’m finding the button choose the hardest part of this project lately!

Petrosinella is Back!

Petrosinella WIP 2

My petrosinella sock is out of hibernation!  It has quite the history behind it already.  I started the sock in a size medium back in 2013.  I prefer knitting toe-up and I didn’t realize it was way too big until I was almost done!  That was ripped out and the small sock was started in 2014.  I finally picked it up again  a few weeks ago.  Third time’s the charm right?

I’m proud to say that I have avoided the second sock syndrome.  I decided to cast on my second pair right after I turned the heel of the first sock and was looking forward to the second sock well before the first was done.  Lucky for me I have two sets of sock size DPN needles.  I’m not sure this trick always works.  I’ll make sure to go back to two at a time for my next pair!
