Another inch in the wall, er, sweater


After regular breaks in my knitting time (this bulky yarn and size 13 knitting needles is killing my wrists!) - I'm officially up to the arm pit area of my Hurry Up Sweater. 15 inches in the front and 17 inches on the back, thanks to the short rows I added in. 


I decided to mark everything in order to keep track - Elizabeth Zimmerman's directions are usually very short and concise.

One of the other knitters doing this project - there's kind of a Knitalong group at Lila and Claudine's Yarn Shop in Mahtomedi -  was counting back to her increase markers for the same reason!


She's already pretty far ahead of me!

Looking ahead - I'll be at the Minnesota Knitters' Guild Annual Retreat again this weekend. I'm taking both gray projects as well as a ball of hand spun and a new hat pattern I just bought, the Whiskey Highball hat by Thea Coleman. It was just published this week and I snapped it up, her patterns are just that good!


Hopefully, I'll be through to the sleeves of both sweaters by the time I'm back!
