First Sleeve

I figured I should at least blog about knitting once in awhile since this is a Knitting Blog after all. I have been reading alot of knitting mysteries lately as I mentioned before. My co-worker got me hooked on them. Thanks, Carol! I started getting jealous of the characters who were knitting, since I was just reading about knitting and not actually knitting. So I started knitting again and here's my very first sleeve so far. It has a ton of ribbing at the bottom so it looks very small, however it stretches around the wrist actually. After the ribbing, you change to larger needles, which I've done, and as you go up you increase every so many rows so hopefully the thing will fit over my arm when all is said and done and it's seamed together. If not, it could be a pretty funny and grand experiment! This will be what I take with me to the ocean so when I'm not reading about knitting and actually knitting, it will be my project. And when I get stuck, Mom will be there to bail me out. Remember, this is the sweater I'm working on:



I already found jewelry to match it, seriously, I did. So I have to finish the thing now.

It's going to be a great color on you. What pattern is that? Are you using the yarn that's in the photo. It's so neat to see the color changes on variegated yarns. It must be so nice to have your Mom to help.

It is the same yarn shown in the photo. It is from England actually and I love it. It is called "Air" colorway and it is from a pattern book I found in Langley, WA. If you go back to my post Long Sleeve Cardigan I list the pattern book. I can get it for you if you can't find it...

It will be fantastic, love to see it finished with the accessories too. I've never been that organised to get accessories before I've finished
