SSKAL 17: Jones sweater

It’s been… a very long time since we’ve posted here. Sorry! We’ve still been knitting, but we’ve been more focused on knitting than blogging about it. Hoping to get back into the swing of things as we settle into fall.

This summer I did my very first knitalong (KAL), the summer sweater knitalong (SSKAL) hosted by Shannon Cook of Very Shannon. It was just the kick in the butt I needed! I had been working on a Jones sweater for ages, but I put it down about halfway through the first sleeve and left it for several months. Sleeves are really boring, you guys, I’m not sure if you knew that. But deadlines are very helpful things, self-imposed or otherwise, so I pledged to finish the sweater by the end of the SSKAL in September. And I did!

It’s so cozy. I absolutely love it. Perfect for fall days and cold offices. And since finishing it, I can’t wait to make more sweaters!
