Last night I finished sewing in the ends of my Sunday Sweater Junior by Petit Knit. Well, it’s not actually my sweater but I knitted it for my granddaughter Evie. I made myself one a couple of years ago. I made this one using Debbie Bliss Realto 4 ply superwash merino, holding two strands with Debbie Bliss Angel silk mohair. It’s quite a lush knit and should be wonderful for Winter next year. I think we’ve missed the proper cold weather now that we’ve moved into Spring.
This jumper is knit in the round in one piece with a circular yoke. I love taking a photo of the yoke before separating for the sleeves! My preferred sleeve knitting is doing two at a time. I’m very conscious of knitting the two sleeves exactly the same. Doing them separately makes it too easy to do more or fewer rounds and maybe decreases at different times. I know that it probably would be such a small difference that it wouldn’t be noticeable but it’s something that would annoy me. Knitting sleeves two at a time makes yarn management tricky at the best of times with two balls going at once but, in this instance, I had six balls going at once. I had two strands of the 4 ply and one of the mohair on each sleeve. It did make things quite interesting!
I spent a week in Sydney recently to help out my daughter and grandson, also while recuperating from foot surgery. I got plenty of knitting done that week, particularly on the Sunday Sweater Junior, and also had some nice scenery to enjoy at the same time!
Thanks for joining me today! See you again tomorrow. 😊

Knitting as a craft that baffles me I can only do this most basic of stitches… ie a single knit stitch 😁🙈
Knitting is only two stitches, knit and purl. I think it just takes practice to get proficient at knitting. 😊
