In the whirlwind of NaKniSweMo knitting I nearly completely forgot my beautiful Oshima, until I saw this Instagram picture of Cara‘s Oshima, and I remembered my sad little sweater, shoved in a project bag and set aside for almost a whole month. Unlike the misbehaving Hugo, Oshima wasn’t on an intentional time out. There were just so many deadline projects all in a row, and then NaKniSweMo started and it seemed appropriate to begin a new sweater for the challenge, so I pulled her out over the weekend and finished up the front…
You can see the sleeves on this post. I just need to finish the back shaping (not much at this point), then I can put it together and work that glorious cowl neck! I did add about 3.5 inches to the body because it seemed way too short for my long-waisted torso. Look at this gorgeous shaping:
Hugo is still on a deadline, yes, but maybe I can slip in some work on Oshima here and there. It feels like it’s only a day and a half of work at this point!
So many knits, so little time! My brain is working on designs too. Can I just retire from this dissertation work and go full-time with knitting already? Sigh. Back to the needles.
