Peace Sweater #11

Progress! I’ve been working on this project for a while, and used the car trip to the Big Horns to finish up the first sleeve! 


I’m pretty pleased with how this looks before blocking. I think a gentle steam finish will even things out, and the curve on the back side looks like a good fit for the arms eye on the sweater’s main body.


It is amazing to me that this project is drawing to a conclusion! One more sleeve and the collar before the knitting is finished, and the actual construction begins. Thanks to the notes I took a few weeks ago, the second sleeve is progressing smoothly; I am half way through the second border, and will be on to the main pattern in just a few rounds! It’s time to get serious about purchasing hardware and the other finishing parts. I hope to have this complete for the county fair in mid August, and that is indeed looking possible!

    1. Yep, slow and steady wins the race, and this sleeve is like lightning compared to the last one with all the multiple frogging. I am going to be able to swap to the small circulars some time today, which will make everything that much easier.

  1. Kathy this sweater is so beautiful!!! It looks like it was extremely difficult to make. If I wasn’t afraid of knitting needles I might consider trying to learn to knit!!! 😀

    1. Tami, it is more of a patience buster than difficult. It’s like counted cross stitch,mad long as you count, all you do is go round and round for the most part! I had a wild thought today about getting red wool and making trousers to go with it for wool contest! Not sure that’s the best plan, but that color combo is sure popular right now.
