I decided to show my progress on the new socks first because they are lots prettier than the sweater I am working on. I decided to make the toes a little longer than usual because I wear mostly Birkenstocks in the winter and I wanted the beauty if the yarn to show. I am doing a 1x1 rib on the top and that will continue on all of the ankle part.
I had thought I might be close to the heel but I think I have a little further to go before I begin that turn.
Here the picture is of the back of the sweater (the completed part) lying on top of the fronts which are not yet completed. But look how close I am getting.
From counting the “bumps” on the back I think I have 44 rows to go. I repeatedly say that I am a slow knitter but I am trying to devote time to getting these fronts done so I can start on the sleeves.
This is the look I get from Abby every time I pick up my knitting because it takes up puppy space on my lap.
Sherlock, however, is always happy, no matter what.
Tomorrow I will be without my car because our son-in-law borrowed it to drive a a high school girl in a Homecoming parade. To me this means that I “have” to spend most of the day in the studio bouncing between knitting and quilting projects. Saturday DH will be gone all day to judge a Jr. Miss pageant. He has been doing this for over 30 years and always has a good time with the other judges and I will have lots of “play” time. By Sunday our lives will be back to normal which should also include knitting and quilting and eating. Hope you also have a great weekend. Gari
I am again linking with Patchwork Times for On The Needles Friday.
