As the poet Robert Robert Burns said, “The best-laid schemes o’ mice an’ men gang aft agley” and my plans to get many hours of knitting in this weekend did indeed gang aft agley.
I did manage to finish the first sleeve:
And I did cast on a second sleeve:
But that’s it. I’ve not done the finishing around the neck yet. And I need to attach the first sleeve to the body of the sweater using a three-needle bind-off. To do that, I need to pick up stitches along the side of the sweater, and then holding the right sides of sweater and sleeve, bind off the stitches together purl-wise.
So I’d best get to it, shall I?
By the way, there is now a Wendy Knits Lace group on Ravelry, so if you are interested in talking about your projects from the book with other knitters, join up!
