Around in circles

As I’ve mentioned elsewhere, I’m currently working on a tiny sweater. It is, apparently, easier to knit tiny things because they progress so much faster (leading to less frustration and more self-esteem) and also because they involve much less yarn.

More interestingly, this is my first real attempt at circular knitting, which started off annoying and has now progressed to the point that straight needles feel strange and unnatural. This is aided somewhat by the fact that I have been working exclusively in stockinette stitch, and stockinette stitch is even easier using circular needles as it’s the same thing all the time. Furthermore, I’m getting serious help with the sleeves (thanks, mom!) as they each require the use of four double-pointed needles, and that’s a skill I just don’t have.

So I guess it’s more accurate to say I’m currently working on the body — the vest portion, if you will — of a tiny sweater.

In other good news, I’ve found two other patterns I plan to start moving on once the sweater is done. Exciting.

    Hmmm, and I was impressed with myself because I learned how to cast on and knit a row tonight.

    You might have to give me some pointers ;)
