Stitching Status: So. Many. Stitches!

This was yesterday morning, only 2 1/2 inches on my Boothbay garter stitch collar. I’m happy to announce that as of yesterday evening I finished the collar and am working on the sleeves!!
Here’s the one worry I have…since it isn’t blocked right now the sweater is sitting up quite awkwardly on my butt {insert laughing emoji right here…}. I know, I know…I would’ve never considered my butt in a knitwear design but I am keeping my fingers crossed that once this bad boy is blocked and can relax a bit more it will sit properly over my hind parts. Otherwise someone really slim with no booty will be getting this sweater I’ve worked diligently on for the last 2 weeks. The goal is to finish the sleeves and block this baby by Sunday!
I rewarded myself yesterday for finishing the garter stitch collar by casting on the Oatmeal sweater for my cousin. I always make her the smallest size because she is TINY but I then worry about whether or not it will fit because I feel like I’m knitting a toddler sweater. Everyone says this pattern runs small, which is probably in her favor and I hope it will fit her like a glove. I’m flying to Chicago next Friday to see her so only time will tell. This is a quick knit so once I finish off Boothbay I should be able to fly through finishing this one.
As I’m looking through my Ravelry projects if I finish up this Oatmeal sweater this week I will have completed 3 adult sweaters and 2 baby cardigans in the month of September. Clearly I have smoke coming off of my knitting needles but I’m going with it while I’ve got some knitting fire power within me. Oh and here’s a picture of Cher because she’s my dog, it’s my blog and I just think she’s the cutest.

Have a great weekend!

  1. I love that last post, too funny! It amazes me that you don’t realize how quickly you knit up these pieces (3 adult & 2 children size), especially since I remind you EVERY time I see you πŸ˜‰

  2. Your hands and needles are like jet packs … 3 adult sweaters in one month … I bow to you oh Sweater Queen! Really! πŸ˜€

    1. I never thought I would be addicted to knitting sweaters but I am! It’s just so satisfying.

      1. Kinda like how I love dyeing and spinning. We got our sweet spots! πŸ˜€
