Sleeves A Lot March 26, 2010

What’s more fun than doing taxes?

Well, on list of things that Abslolutely, Positively, Got to Get Done, that would be: Sleeves~

Erm, no sleeves, no cardigan ;p

Thus, I’m zooming right along with my Mondo Cable Cardi Sleeve #1 and it’s about six inches long now. A couple of weekends ago, I picked up some blue-cable Addi turbos and they are really speedy! My old ones are stuck in some other projects and besides, they have this stiff crudtastic cable that drives me crazy when I do this technique.

Knitting in the round with two circular needles can go very fast or be maddeningly slow if the cables are not really flexible (or, as I found out recently, the joins in the tips is chipped and snags).

But these must be a new & improved version and are working way beyond my expectations.

    I’m zipping out a second sleeve–amazing what happens when I concentrate on one project.
