Lockdown Flashback #5

There is a reason we knitters refer to “sleeve island”.  Knitting sleeves is tedious at best and agonizing at worse.  Especially when knitted in the round.  And when knitting a sweater for one’s husband, the sleeves can seem interminable.  For this Lockdown Flashback, I direct you to a post from February of 2012 with the endearing title “Do you love your husband enough to knit the sleeves?”  If you have ever done this, you know what I mean.

When I wrote this post, I was not convinced I would ever finish knitting these sleeves.  I was not sure that even my devotion for Doug was sufficient….


It was, of course, and the finished sweater turned out pretty damn good, even if I do say so myself.  (You can see the finished sweater here or here.)

Keep safe, everyone!

  1. That’s so funny! I’m reading this as I’m knitting the first sleeve of my husband’s cardigan, knit from the stash. It’s actually not that bad – the Aran weight helps. Not sure I would knit him a fingerweight cardigan though 😉
