Or sleeves–whatever you want to call them. I have two projects with sleeves in progress, one which I just finished one sleeve and still have one to go, and a fourth (not pictured) which has yet to have the sleeves begun because I’m still working on its body. (Don’t dare suggest that I just stick to one project at a time!)
First, L1’s Avast sweater which has been around two years in the making, currently. Why? Because the man has ape arms and I just wasn’t motivated to work on the sleeves (and still am not). Maybe in August or September I’ll pick it up again.
Yes, that’s an attack cat in there.
Second, the sleeves for my Apres Surf Hoodie, which is going to be made sans hood. I’ve been working on this one almost a year now. The back and the front are done. I have to knit the sleeves, do all sorts of joining and i-cord bind-offs, then pick up and knit the neck opening.
I might not finish in the year time slot because I have been working on the Whisper Cardigan instead this week. I finished the first sleeve and am now working on the back for it.
And there is a certain birthday sweater for a certain going to be 8-year-old that I have to finish, too. And I have some other projects that need to be started and completed around the one-year anniversary of the hoodless hoodie. Sleeves are not my favorite. I know they’re small, but for some reason they feel tedious. I don’t ever have second sock syndrome, but I do have sleeve sloth syndrome. *sigh* There could be worse things.
If you’re really interested in finding out more about all of those WIPS you can check out their project pages on Ravelry. And since I haven’t said before, I’m willowluna on there, too.
