Sleeve Island

Wow! I feel as if I have been knitting sleeves forever! After this I don't think I will ever complain about having Second Sock Syndrome again. I have completed my first sleeve...obviously since it's pictured in my previous post and am working on my second one. I am now a little over half way done. Thank goodness we only have 2 arms. If we had anymore I'd have to hang it up. This is on my Central Park Hoodie. I definately want to finish it before the KAL is cut off on December 15th. Plus the fact that it is a present makes it even more important. I have planned to start many other projects but have put them on hold as I want my knitting mojo for my CPH.

In other news, I have graphed out a sock pattern and now just need to test knit it to make sure what I put on paper looks the way I want it to on the real thing. I never thought that little 'ol me could ever do such a thing. Hmmmm, I wonder what else I can get into??? This thought may have to wait a little bit since I have Christmas gifts galore to make. Some knit and some sewn...if I get that far.

I am still working on my a few small things for my Harvest Sock Swap pal. I hope she enjoys them. And have yet to hear from mine. Maybe someday soon though. (sigh)

I'm curious how you do a three needle bind off on the sleeves? I've officially given up on my CPH until I have nerves of steel. (I'm working with Yorkshire Tweed and I have torn the yarn without much pressure at all, so I'm freaking out at the prospect of seaming the sleeves!) I would LOVE to use that method on my sleeves so I can chalk this one up as an FO!!! If you're willing to divulge, please email me at sweetarts at mac dot com.

Thanks, and it looks great so far!!!
