This Little Piggy Learned A New Trick 

I have seen people knitting sleeves two at a time. It seems simple enough, but Inhave learned from experience that what seems simple in youtube tutorial could be a bloody complicated task in practice. 

However, as usual, I was bored and I did need a challenge. So I watched the tutorial once more, and started with my sleeves. 

 

oh well… challenge’s accepted!

 
Casting on is piece of piss. Counting them needed more concentration. Having a notebook or doodle paper is always handy. 

After ribbing, and a few rows, I finally mastered the technique of knitting them without getting both yarns all tangled up.

 

so far so good…

 
I have to say that I don’t really fancy doing two things at once. I found multitasking very confusing. But the row counter in the end of my needles was a godsend so that I could do knitting without being bothered with counting. 

Even so, I have to say that for knitting sleeves it is much better to do two at a time. It will make sure both will end up exactly the same, and in a similar tension. 

 

tadaa… wait, was that one stretched more than the other?

 
Now I have to sew them together. I hate sewing 😦
