I've missed YarnAlong-ing with everyone, on the past few Wednesdays...so even though my kids and I have a swim date in 15 minutes, and even though I am STILL on a never-ending, constantly-being-revised, often-ripped-out cardigan sweater, I am determined to link up today!
The sweater is almost finished. It's the "finishing" that is taking so long. You can knit the sleeves, front and back of a sweater perfectly, but if you screw up the fine details of "finishing", it's all over. So I have been determined to finish well. I have seamed and re-seamed, knit button-hole bands and re-knit them, because the button holes weren't evenly distributed along the band...and so on and so forth....and I am ALMOST done.
I also learned a lot about how to seam and make button-holes. Useful.
I am reading Bristol House by Beverly Swerling and I Know This Much is True by Wally Lamb (see right sidebar), both on my Nook.
