This is my progress on the pea pod sweater. In other words, no progress. I am encouraged though – the pattern (chart) that I printed out WAS wrong (thanks, Shannon!) and after I printed out the new version, I think it all makes sense. The only challenge now is finding time to knit when my brain isn't mush and I'm not holding a baby.
But the baby is cute, no?
So on to other exciting knitting items.
I am going to try to teach my new friend, Lisa, to knit (at her request). I have a hunch that she's pretty crafty, and my approach will be simple. Today I will arm her: Stitch 'n Bitch book; large bamboo needles; versatile worsted wool yarn. Then we'll plan a playgroup where the kids will play and we will knit. Then she'll be addicted and we will be partners in crime in the practice of covert yarn acquisition.
I suppose I should first see if she takes to the knitting before I go planning our knitting future together. The good news is that our husbands are both sports fans, so they can hang out with the children for a day while we go here in October. But I won't get ahead of myself….
