The details on this pattern 😍 I left this sleeve on the knitting machine about three weeks ago & finally finished it this morning. On to sleeve two next. Wish me luck! I’m knitting the brioche & ribbing by hand & the stockinette parts on the machine. .
.
.
.ETA: and less than an hour later, I have a second sleeve! When the machine works, it’s awesome. When it doesn’t? It’s very frustrating. Today was a good machine day 😍

Blu can’t even look at me she’s so embarrassed that I forgot to stuff the yarn cakes inside the sleeves while I was knitting inches and inches of them. It would’ve saved me what seemed like lots of yarn management time. I’m sorry Blu. I’ll try to remember sooner on my next sweater. .

Twelve inches of yarn left and only 15 minutes from home at end of our 3,300 mile trip with unplanned detour. I think I can survive for 15 minutes. Plus, my hands could use a rest. #futuresweater #projectsweaterchest #knitting #knitstagram #brooklyntweed #grettir #carknitting #zingneedles #shelteryarn #makersgonnamake
