A Sleeve and a Half
Just a quick update today -- with (finally!) a really bad picture of the sweater, courtesy of my rainy-day-dark bathroom and Microsoft Paint, since Photoshop is still acting up.
I haven't had a ton of knitting time -- or blogging time. But, for some reason, no one feels sorry for me when I tell them what I've been busy with. I've actually been working, but that means going to press screenings and things. Tonight, I'm going to a screening of Click (don't tell my esteemed film-critic colleagues, but I adore Adam Sandler, so I can't wait). And since Paul has hockey, I'm dragging Barbara along for the adventure.
Whenever I get a few spare minutes, though, I pull out the sweater -- because I *really* just want it to be done. I'm working on the sleeves -- and I should be done soon. Just half a sleeve or so to go. Notice Sleeve #1, which I finally finished, despite having ripped out 35 whole rounds. Ick.
I'm dying to start on something else (like a Picovoli in some green cotton that I got at the outlet, and that flowery blanket, and, of course, more lace!), but I'm determined to get the sweater done first. And, believe it or not, I'm sticking to that -- mostly because I don't have a lot of time to start something new. Just a week and a half, though, and I'll be able to get back to the cottage for a few days. And then the real knitting will begin.
