I'm Looking Over...

a four leaf clover!

I'm on my way with the first sock from the Six Sox Knitalong. I'm using Elann Esprit. This is another fun, quick sock like Broadripple. Unlike Broadripple the pattern isn't written for two circulars so I'm going to have to figure out the whole heel thing when I get there.

I'm ever so slowly working on the finishing for my Shapely Tank. I forgot how much I love the yarn but I'm hating knitting with an entire sweater hanging off my (little) needles. This week at least. I've left it on the kitchen island. Whenever I walk by a knit on it for a minute or two. It should be done by the end of the weekend. There's no rush since it's cold and miserable here right now. I pinned it together yesterday and tried it on. It's not going to be as baggy as I feared or as long. It's a little big around the hips but it's okay.

I've taken the GE Cardi sleeves out of my purse. They are just too big to carry around. I moved the socks in there. But now I need to hunker down and finish knitting these damned sleeves. There's something about this sweater that makes me feel like I'm just treading water. I took the sleeves to Stitch 'N Bitch last night and knit on them for three hours and it seems like they stayed the same size. Huh? My fuzzy pink yarn for the trim is being held captive at Ram Wools anyway while they wait for my Cotton Angora to come in. I ordered it on April 4th and I'm still waiting. Mia, hang on! I'm coming!
