I felt like I was really scooting along with the first of the sweater fronts. Since it was only half the width, there were only half the stitches added in for that dolman sleeve. I'll start the other side this morning. The rib has the same number of stitches as most of my socks and uses the same size needles. So, tell me why it seems to take forever.
I did kind of get seduced away from it, too. On Tuesday, I was given
On Thursday, I cast on for my Not-My-Grampa's Cardi. The pattern is this one by Ned Renfield. Really, really simple. It would have been even easier had I had the right size dpn's for the sleeves. I had to knit them flat and seam them later. Those small amounts of yarn were all that I had left. I even had to fudge the collar by a couple of rows.
I'm just going to go and sew on the buttons and seam the sleeves now. Then I'll look in the bag and see what else I can make. There's a little baby blanket I'd like to make up. Have you noticed that the seniors buy a lot of baby stuff?
