Half a sock, half a sweater

I’m leaving town again tomorrow and wanted to leave proof that knitting progress has happened. First, here’s the entire, finished, blocked back of my grey boatneck sweater (a CustomFit pattern):IMG_2857

I finished the front last night, but I still need to weave in the ends and block it. That purl ridge you see that the bottom is for a turned hem.

I started knitting the first sleeve on our Austin trip last week, and I’m taking them on the plane tomorrow. I fully expect to finish the sleeves this week. So soon, I will need to do some finishing!

I’ve also been knitting another pair of socks for S1. She really likes the Monkey pattern (she got green Monkeys last spring), so I’m using that again. This is the “Yellowstone” colorway American B.R.A.N.D. yarn I told you about back in January:IMG_2734

These are a sort of yellowish-brown and I think they will read as a friendly neutral. I’m on the heel flap of sock #2, so I hope to finish that during my week away, as well.

Which means: I need another knitting project, pronto! Guess I’d better wind some more sock yarn…

Your productivity is impressive! I'm liking S1's new socks, and can't wait to see that sweater!
