Cheering up my Christmas Blues

Hi, I'm Cece. I'm excited to join this knitalong!

I usually never allow myself to get into the position where I have lots of knitting to do for Christmas. Especially if it's knitting scarves. I. HATE. KNITTING. SCARVES.

Needless to say, I was tempted by this beautiful sparkley Mohair, and have been slugging through finishing it for a friend that I know will love it.

Enter the Ribby Cardi. It's a fun project that I know I will wear a lot. So I decided to reward myself for progress on the scarves (yes there is another but I can't even talk about it. Let's just say there are many different novelty yarns involved, and it's a special request by my Mother in law) by knitting a fun sweater for me.

I'm starting the sleeves first - and then I'll decide if I like the Ribby all over with the ribbing, or the one with the plain panels. Mine will be in a dark purple/pink color. You can see a picture of the beginning of my sleeves on my blog.

This will be fun!

Are you knitting both sleeves at the same time? What length circs? I think I will do the same!

Yes - I always do both sleeves at the same time, as sleeves are my least favorite. It takes longer, but when you are done, you're done. I don't know the exact size of the circular, but just pick one that you can manage the 200+ stitches we'll end up with for both sleeves after all the increases comforatably.

I use Denise Interchangables, so if I run out of space, I can just add on some more cable!

Great idea Cece on doing both sleeves at once...I agree, get them over with! Lovely colour yarn you've chosen too...can't wait to see it "bigger".
