There is nothing all that new to talk about on the knitting front. Just thought I would update everyone on the sweater that never ends (sing the song with me, every time I say “the sweater that never ends” I start humming in my head.) I have been making slow progress on the sleeves. I keep measuring and measuring to see if I can start the raglan shaping, while unsuccessfully trying to talk myself into 3/4 length sleeves. I know that I really want full length sleeves. And I like my sleeves extra long so, I keep knitting.
Another big road block I already see coming is the neck finishing. Most recently I had intended to make a fairly long kind cowly turtle neck type thing. I am currently questioning that logic. The less neck to knit the faster it will be done. I am really not sure which side of me will win that battle.
I have picked my next project and was thinking I could get away with swatching a little bit to break the monotony, but I need the exact needles I am using now for the sweater that never ends. I am very tempted to go buy another set of size 4s. I need to have another cable length in 4s, right?
