That Sweater!

It is done, in the box and as soon as I get my mother's address it will be in the mail.

Carrie K asked why I was sending it to my mother. Well - firstly it is her sweater, secondly the reason I made her the sweater is because she sews the pieces together for me sometimes. I hate the actual act of finishing a sweater. It isn't that it's difficult or that I don't know how; it is that I don't like it. Waste of good knitting time. Although I almost un-bound the shoulders so I could knit them together and put the neck in before I sent it.

Liz - you are quite capable of knitting your own mittens. But we'll talk - later.

So what neglected project did I pick up next. A pair of socks. They needed the toes done so I did them. They also go to my mother. They are a gift for her friend Lana. I hope they fit.

Next was - tada - the modular knits sweater that I have about 1/3 done. It is really turning out nicely and would have been done sooner but I couldn't find the book for a couple months. I located said book while looking for other stuff that had nothing whatsoever to do with knitting, isn't that always the way.

Again there are no pictures because I'm still not that together. Someday soon, I hope.

You can welcome to stop by and get your yarn - but I'll probably be busy - PAINTING.

Oh, that seems reasonable, that you'd send her her sweater. Nosy question, but I was hoping that maybe she was crazy for finishing up sweaters, in which case, in a few hundred years, I might have one or two for her......
