After nearly a month without knitting, I picked up my needles last night. It’s probably too late for me to finish a May sweater from scratch, what with Prom (Come to Prom!) around the corner and all. But I did finish 2 sweaters in January, so I’m still on track either way.
My current sweater’s a puff-sleeved summer raglan made from the mountains of Angora Soft I have on hand. I’m using a YO increase, increasing front and back sections every other row and the sleeve sections every single row.
Hopefully they’ll be a little puffier and more even than my first experiment with puff sleeves, which were more of an afterthought because I liked the way the fabric was bunching up on my needles.
