Last night I finished up the sleeves of Starlight!
I’m beyond excited that they are now done. I don’t know what I did, but somehow I was off by a few stitches at the end of the second sleeve. I ended up having to add in some extra decreases before binding off to make the two match. Ah well, you can’t really tell at all and they are the same length/shape, so I’m not worried about it. This weekend I’ll sew it all together, knit the button band, and find some buttons for it. Definitely feeling a lot better that I’m so close to being done, especially with Rhinebeck nearly here! 🙂
I can’t wait to start some new projects! I’ve got one secret project that I need to start for my Loopy Ewe swap pal I want to start Waves of Grain, but I still need beads for that. I want to knit a pair Snapdragon Flip-Tops (Ravelry link) with the Malabrigo I have in “Sunset” (same color I knit the scarf in). I’ll probably start the secret project and the mittens this weekend. There’s other things in my queue, but these two projects are calling to me right now. Plus, I think some smaller projects are definitely in order after such a big project.
I’m looking forward to the long weekend since Columbus Day is Monday and I have the day off. This weekend we have no plans, other then lunch with some folks on Sunday. It’ll be a good weekend to get things together for Rhinebeck next week and just relax. Have a good weekend everyone! 🙂
