We are well into the luvinthemommyhood summer Tops, Tanks and Tees Knit Along and I am knit knit knitting along!
Frighteningly there are some amazing people that have finished their garment….and some are even considering knitting a second. Phew, where do they find the time?
I have made significantly less progress than a completed garment! Now, don’t be thinking that I have been slacking off. I think I have knitted every day in the last two weeks, it’s just that the knitting has been (mostly) confined to a few hours each evening.
I am working in the round and this garment has some serious positive ease. I started off with 220 stitches and am well on my way to increasing up to 312 stitches….there are just a mere 40 rows to go before I can start thinking about dividing for the armholes and top section.
I’ve worked out that I have about 17 stripes to do before I am ready for the armholes and neckband (which means that I am almost half way there). Each stripe is taking up to an hour and a half so by my calculations I have about 25 hours of stocking stitch to go….I so wish I hadn’t just worked that out!!!
Keep your fingers crossed that I can get in some serious knitting in the next seven days! Having said that I’m not sure why I feel so under pressure, we are only 2 weeks in out of a total of six. I should in fact be really pleased with my progress :0)
How is everyone else getting on?
