My wrists are definitely improving. I've been having massage therapy every week for the past month and can happily report it is making a difference. Improvement is of course slow, but steady. Which means I've been knitting!!
I've finished 3 projects over the last couple weeks, including 2 sweaters. The first one completed is the Quick and Easy Knit Jumper from 1938. I made a number of modifications, such as less puffy sleeves and a deeper v-neckline (ok that one was a happy accident). The top ribbing is supposed to be smocked, but I was impatient and wore it without finishing that part. I actually like it with just the ribbing so I may not bother ever adding the smocking.
The second sweater I completed (this morning actually) was the infamous 3-Hour Sweater, also from the 1930's. I had made this sweater before, but I obviously did it completely differently as this version fits very differently. I didn't know my yarn was self-striping until I started knitting with it, but I am pleased with the final look. I was a little worried about the stripes not even remotely matching up, but somehow it doesn't detract from the look of the sweater. And no, it didn't take 3 hours to complete.
I've already cast on my next project (a 1920's sweater) and may start a secondary project as well. As much as I love finely knit sweaters, I find myself drawn to chunkier knits lately. My knitting time is limited but chunky knits provide satisfyingly quick results. Anyone have any recommendations for fast vintage knitting patterns?
