WIP Wednesday Denali Sweater

Denali WIP

We're in the home stretch! I waited until after Christmas to block the front of the Denali, I messed up one of the sleeves and ripped it back, popped it on the needles then started both shoulder shaping decreases at the same time. Is there anything worse the making one sleeve just a touch longer than the other.

WIP Denali
I was extra careful this time with the sleeves, measuring and re-measuring every few rows as tedious as it was. Both sleeves are off the needles and blocked, of course I had to rip back one of them, again! Way to not pay attention!
I was so hoping to be done by this month's WIP but that's ok (I don't have anything else lined up... yet)

Up next is grafting the sleeves to the front and back, picking up the collar and doing all the seams and weaving. I still haven't finished any of the ends, in the back of my mind I'm still going to mess it up some how! The closer I get to being finished the more nervous I get that in the last steps I'm going to somehow make on monstrous mistake and have to start all over agin. I think I'm starting to loose it.

Here it is!

I can't believe that this is going to be my last WIP for the Denali Sweater!  (If you want to take a look back, here's part 1, 2, and 3) Coming up, Finished Object status!


  1. You're almoooooost there!! I'm excited to see this sewn up and on your husband. That would also mean you might be starting your cherry pie sweater. I'm so glad you'll be knitting on it, too. I'm glad I had some Patons in my stash that I can use for it, because the KAL kind of surprised me. I got yarn for my birthday, but none of it would be appropriate for this sweater. I would've been bummed to have to miss the KAL.

  2. Oh it's done and has been worn. I'm waiting for the rain to stop to take some photos.

    I've added yarn to my Webs basket for cherry pie and another sweater but have yet to order. My son wants a sweater too, I'll ended up making that first, I'm sure. Right now I have nothing on my needles, not even a swatch!
