I have gotten to a point on my sweater where I can't travel with it. My solution to that problem is to work on other projects while I am on the train.
Here is the progress on my hat from earlier today. I'm almost ready for the increasing and cables.

I am still stuck on sleeve island with my Japan Sleeves sweater. I just completed knitting the width of the sleeve. All that is left to do is to complete the shaping and seam the sleeve. Just a few more short rows.

I made some progress on the sleeves. I completed the short rows, and have been knitting from end to end. Once the sleeves are done, I can seam that and start the body.
I really meant to post this yesterday, but I have been busy with work, work, work.
I have decided to rip out my hat and cast it on again, using a size 5 needle. My curly hair has won the battle.
This is a picture of my pocketbook on my lap while I was unraveling on the train. Everyone looked at me like I was crazy. Hahahaaaa.

A friend of mine sent me a request for these slippers. I think they are so cute!

It's 28 degrees outside, and I'm torn between knitting my sweater and making a hat.
I wound up the yarn, and casted on for the hat anyway.
The name of the hat is Sand Bank by Justyna Lorkowska. It's a slouchy cabled hat, and I intend to add a huge Pom-Pom to it.
I used a stretchy German Twisted Cast-On, but I'm wondering if I should go up another needle size. The hair on my head is quite curly and fluffy, and I need to make sure the hat will be able to fit around it properly. Hmmmmmmmmm
Also, to get the cable needle needed for the hat, I had to remove one of the needles from my sweater. The good thing is, I was finally able to fix the twisted back. Now it hangs just right.
