The first sleeve appears to have simply materialized! It was fun to see progress so quickly. Even more fun was pulling out my tin of progress keepers from @anntudorllc Ann Tudor. I got her advent calendar last year and this is the first chance I’ve had to use the markers. Each piece is a work of art and I don’t care that they are “out of season” now. They are beautiful and make my knitting feel fun. I’m looking forward to knocking free second sleeve out this weekend. 😍 #knitting #knittersofinstagram #anntudormarkers
