wandering lust

sleeves for the hooded pullover

yummy!yummy! sleeves

I’ve totally forsaken my other projects in favor of the hooded pullover. guilt will probably set in later, but for now I’m just enjoying the ride. I didn’t get as much knitting done as I had hoped this weekend, but this yarn knits up so fast that it didn’t really seem to matter. I finished the second sleeve today and don’t they make a lovely pair? I probably won’t get to join them to the body tonight, but hopefully tomorrow I’ll be working my way to the hood. there is one little problem though. I’m already eyeing up another sweater. thankfully I don’t have any yarn for it and none of the swatches I have match up, so it’ll be a while until I can cast on.
eta: ack!! yet another sweater I covet! all those cables are so gorgeous.

    Wow! Your actual progress on knitting projects is hugely inspiring. I love that Jo Sharp Aran Tweed – it looks beautiful all knit up! Thanks for the inspiration – it was a warm day in Chicago and I’m not complaining, but hey – where’s my sweater weather?
