Apart from seaming the underarms and blocking, Philippa’s birthday sweater is done! I need to cast on Phoebe’s this week, but I haven’t had the time to wind up yarn and swatch, so I’ve picked up my featherweight in the meantime. Ever so grateful for a few mindless projects on the go that I can pick up as needed and add a row or two. Somehow the body of my featherweight is already nearly done, I’m knitting the last few rows of ribbing on the hem. Then onto sleeves. I’m going to try knitting with small circumference circulars on the sleeves and see if it helps me avoid laddering. I ordered 9-inch but now I’m wondering if I shouldn’t have tried 12-inch? Any recommendations, knitters?
I’m still reading On the Road with Saint Augustine. I can’t move too quickly through this one, lots to mull over and reflect on. Although let’s be honest, I’m not reading much these days, only the last few minutes before sleep.
