Joanie by PoisonGrrls

I finished my second adult sweater in a reasonable time frame! :joy:

It was also my first time participating in a Knit-A-Long, so it was a whole champion of firsts for me. I got to do some minor adjustments, which is helping me learn the logic of raglan patterns, along with the boost of confidence of a finished product.

(My first sweater was super simple, but somehow took me well over a decade to actually complete, so this is a massive improvement…)

Impressive! You did a great job on this! As someone who has no knowledge of how to knit, I am blown away with your ability to crest an entire sweater out of sone skeins of yarn!

Did you find the knit-a-long beneficial in helping you stay on track to complete it in a decent amount of time?

Knitting is sooo much fun! I do a lot of “low effort” knitting while watching TV (I used to take it to the movies, classes, and work meetings, too, when those were in person!).

The knit-a-long is absolutely the reason I was able to finish this somewhat quickly! I had a basic schedule for when things should be completed. I’ll probably set up a similar timeframe for myself when making future projects like this, actually, because otherwise I tend to have a million WIPs going at once and never finish anything!

I love the cabled sleeve join treatment. makes a simple sweater very special. I find that cables impress the heck out of people!
