WIP Wednesday: Where did Napoleon keep his armies?

It's yet another WIP Wednesday and I am still working on the featherweight cardi. I know it's slow going and such, but I've been monogamous to it for a while, which is highly unusual for me. I do have other projects on the needles, I promise, they just have not interested me as much lately. So yet another featherweight update it is.

I made a lot of progress this past week. Because Chris and I went back home, I knit the entire 4 hour drive from his apartment to my parents' house, which got me through a huge section of the body. On Sunday I put the body onto waste yarn because we were going to the football game and I did not want to be pulling out my measuring tape every 30 minutes to see how far I had left to go. So instead I started working on this:

That's right. I started a sleeve! My first ever. Isn't it cool? There's something really satisfying about working on the sleeve. I picked up the stitches in the car on the way to the game and it has been smooth sailing ever since. I've heard rumors of second sleeve syndrome, a vicious cousin of second sock syndrome, but I'm hoping my enthusiasm will keep me safe.

So where did Napoleon keep his armies? In his sleevies! (probably not knitted by Josephine)


  1. The sleeve looks great! I've never crocheted in the car, but we're driving to Vegas soon. Maybe I'll have to give it a try on my husband's leg of the trip (it's a 4- 4 1/2 hour drive each way).

  2. That is very pretty! I can't wait to see the finished results. =)

  3. Nice! That looks like a nice, rich burgundy color. Hopefully you can stay away from second sleeve syndrome, in last week's post I talk about the second _____ syndrome I suffer - if it needs a second one, it hasn't been done.

  4. LOL, I don't have as much trouble with second sleeve syndrome as I do with second sock syndrome, however, I do suffer greatly from the "I don't wanna stitch it together and block it" syndrome
