Please Sleeve a Message…

Hot.

It’s been hot HOT HOT!
May 17 crazy temps 2

What you’re looking at here- on the right- is a 92 degree temperature recorded at about 4 pm yesterday. Just above it in the photo is an indication of the max temp from earlier in the day- approx 97 stinkin’ degrees. Yeeks!

It was much more tolerable in the living room- where I sought refuge from the insane heat of the afternoon, and knit some sleeve:

Urban Aran Sleeve May 17 08

This is a fun knit. Cable interest, but not so much that you have to think about it. I memorized the repeat after a couple times through, and now it’s pretty relaxing work.

I know I’m getting ahead of myself, but I’m really looking forward to the shoulder construction stage- I think this will make a really nice EZ seamless hybrid.  And that pattern/scheme/construction technique is just so clever.

Doing this mod required changing the cable on the sleeve a bit. You might have noticed that the pattern photo (previous post, below) shows paired cables on the sleeves, just like on the front.  After looking at the gauge and the cable chart, it became very clear that the double cable was going to be way too wide to be a shoulder saddle. So I decided to just do one cable on each sleeve, the one on the right turning right, and the one on the left turning left.  Ta- Da! Still balanced.

I’m a little nervous about the zipper installation,, but I think there are some tutorials online…Guess I should do some research.

It’s really nice to have a sweater in progress. Hopefully the heat will pass and we’ll get back to wool-friendly weather.

    Boy, it’s been a lot hotter down there than up here – amazing what just 30 miles can do.

    That white sweater is going to be adorable – and your yarn is very very nice –

    I’m glad to see that my 6 word memoirs post encouraged someone else to do it. I liked yours 🙂

    Take care in the heat. T.
