And Then There Were Sleeves

All weekend when I wasn’t working on the never-ending bathroom project I was working on my Hitofude.

You start out working the sleeves on this pattern. I assumed that this part would go quick, but alas sleeves take forever no matter what way they are knit.

Finally, at some point early Sunday morning my sleeves were complete! It was a very magic moment as you really had to trust the pattern to get to this point.

I did have one small hiccup when I was seaming the sleeves. I was doing a 3-needle bind off and forgot the bind off part! Had to tink back a bit.
By Sunday night I was on to the body of the sweater. Lots of knitting still remains but I definitely made a good deal of progress.

Until next time….

  1. This is going to be so awesome!

  2. That 3 needle bind off issue? I do it at least once per project which requires a 3 needle bind off. Drives me nuts!

  3. Well done. Amazing how all that is just one sleeve.

  4. I got a chance to try this on and I LOVE IT! I’m waiting for my yarn to arrive at my LYS and then I’m casting on!

  5. Argh the peer pressure! I don’t want to be the only knitter without a Hitofude.
