Oh, Look! Another Squinky Looking Sleeve Thing!

Yes, this is the second sleeve from the Vine Lace Cardi or, as I'm sure we're all beginning to think of it, The-When-Will-It-Ever-End? I'm about 8 rows from the beginning of the sleeve cap shaping and I really, REALLY hope to get the silly thing finished today. It would be great if I could get both sleeves blocked out today, but with the timeline that this cardi is taking, that should probably be saved for next week.

I don't think I've ever said it, and I don't know if you've realized it, but this is actually the first sweater I've ever done with my handspun. I bought the spinning batts from Spinner's Hill at MDS&W two years ago and got the yarn spun up before last year's show. Then it marinated in the stash until I decided what I was going to do with it, and now it's finally being knitted up. I do have another sweater's worth of handspun sitting in the stash that was actually spun before I spun this - it's undyed white Falkland spun to around a worsted weight (I haven't tried a gauge swatch yet).

OK, that's about all I have to say today. I promise, if you haven't given up on reading this blog, I will have something interesting tomorrow. It might be Finn and Ramius (not together, Heaven forbid) but it will be better than a sleeve part laying on the carpet looking all shrivelled and sad.

The sleeve may look squinky still on the needle lying on the floor, but it looks very promising. I'm looking forward to seeing the cardi! I love the color of the yarn.

Aww, it may look funny now, but it's going to be great after it's finished and blocked and sewn together!

The center is being interrupted by increasing the way.It is something difficult to fix it up.
