New Sleeve Thursday


Following the Muse into the Dark Side, I worried myself into a nub over nothing. QUE? All the hand wringing I was doing about flat vs. circular sleeve knitting was for naught. The Sleeve insisted on being knit with 2 circular needles. #1 is an FO.

It resisted all attempts with a long circular for the Magic Loop – even with a nice flexible cable, the size of the cable at larger needle diameters also increases. So it was just fighting me everytime I finished a size and pulled the next end through for knitting the next side. [Read more about knitting small diameters with one needle here]

I finally went with 2 – 24″ circulars and after the first inch (always trixsie on any project) it went smooth as silk.
