Now on to progress news. I am moving right along on my short sleeve cable sweater. Its knitted sideways (meaning cast on is the right sleeve and you work across to the cast off which is the left sleeve) which has been interesting and in its own way challenging. Actually the biggest challenge is working with an odd shaped sweater hanging from the needles after casting off the right front then working the rest of the way across. The nice part will be that in the end the only seams will be two long seams that run down either side of the sweater. Here is my progress up to tonight...
with right side folded over
laid out flat as it is when I'm working on it.
I have gotten my son's knitted cat finished as well, and he is very happy to have a new kitty to add to his collection...he is a cat person just like mom. I've gotten 6 of 12 squares outline quilted on the blue and yellow quilt, and I am working on a blue and white charm bracelette, so I am really happy with where I am on my goals for the month. And I still have almost a week left, so I'm gonna see just how much I can get done. And I'm already thinking of whay I would like to get done next month. Like working on the stained glass afghan I saw recently on Knit and Crochet Now ;cD
As for life in general, all has been pretty smooth, so I can't complain. Would I like to be able to take a month and have no worry about housework, ex issues, work, bills and all that stuff? Of course I would, but every once in a while I get so much satisfaction from being my own person, getting stuff done, taking care of things. I know that may sound odd, but after several years of being made to feel I couldn't handle all of that, it makes me feel so good to know that yes, I can. So even when things get tough, I focus on that and that helps me to get through anything.
Well, I'm going to get on my way, gonna try to get a few more rows done on that sweater :cD Hope you all have a great day!! Warmest country wishes!!
