WIP Wednesday.......my sweater has sleeves.



Good morning, a very quick post on my knitting progress this week.


My Livingston Baby Sweater has got sleeves!!!! I love seamless knits, it was quite fiddly to knit the sleeves onto the body but after a couple of rows, it was fine. The best part is I don't have to sew all the pieces together!!!!


I've also turned the heel on my second Pennycress sock, I'm still reading "Take a Look at me Now" by Miranda Dickinson.


I'm linking up to Ginny's Yarn Along and WIP Wednesday over at Tami's blog.


Thanks for stopping by, I'm sorry it's short and sweet today, my sister has just tried to bake a vegan cake for my nieces 18th birthday which is today and it's turned out a disaster so now I've got to have a go at baking one. I'm not sure if mine will turn out any better but I'll give it a go.

Wishing you the best with the cake - sounds like a big challenge! Love the way the little jumper is coming along, how good it must be to avoid sewing all those pieces together! Hugs, Joy x

Do share that vegan cake recipe. I'm curious about what it looks like and what it tastes like.
Oh my gravy, love that little sweater from it's color to its stitch pattern. I have yet to try bottom up. Any tips on attaching the sleeves?

What a cute sweater. The texture kind of reminds me of dragon scales.

If your baking is anything like your knitting then the cake will be amazing! :-) let us know how it turns out - and how one makes a vegan cake without the likes of eggs and oils! Chrissie x

Wonderful knitting, that sweater looks so soft.
Best of luck with the birthday cake.

I love that sweater with the gentle texture to it. I love seamless knitting for that exact reason too! I love to sew, and embroider, but for some reason I hate sewing up knitted garments. I feel like it's redundant!

karen said...

yay for sleeve additions and for sock knitting! I'm starting on the sleeves of my sweater and I've decided to not knit in the round just to see if I like to knit that way. there will be a seam :/
