Leap of faith

Processed with VSCOcam with x5 presetProgress is being made on the lopapeysa. Having finished the bottom part of the body, it’s now time for the sleeves. Once you get the hang of it, knitting two of those at once on two circular needles is no worse, in my experience, than knitting one sleeve at a time with dpns or the magic loop.

Knitting sweaters does strange things to the mind. One day you’re convinced the whole thing will be too small to fit, and the next it becomes self-evident you could put two of you inside that big bag of stitches. You can’t trust your senses, and you can’t rely on the confidence your swatch and all those calculations are supposed to bring. You can only have faith. And carry on.

Well, let’s carry on, then.
