A now for some actual knitting content


I apologize. I disappear for 2 years and then my first post back has nothing to do with my hobbies.  But I’m going to make up for it with a rundown of some of the things I’ve knit over the last 2 year.  I’ll split it up into different posts.

First, I didn’t finish my Knitting Olympic project. I did get all the knitting done but I have sewn it together yet. Partly because I hate sewing. Also because I misread the instructions and knit it 4 inches longer then it is suppose to be. I can’t make up my mind if I should leave it or rip it back and try again. I am leaning heavily towards the latter but I’m not sure I’m up for it. I should do it in the next couple of months and try and get it done for this fall/winter.

I didn’t realize my mistake until after I washed and blocked it. The schematics weren’t making any sense because of it. As far as I can figure, when I read the directions for how long to make it I interpreted them as being the length from the ribbing to the end instead of the whole length, including the ribbing. 


The back of the Central Park Hoodie.


The fronts.


And the sleeves.

Thankfully the sleeves don’t have to be changed. Although I think I might block them again to get some of the kinks out.
