Lilly is going so fast! Friday night knit night is when I smiled and bound off the right front. I immediately casted on for a sleeve. I know that typically one knits the back, then the two fronts, and then the two sleeves. The sweater is going so fast that I figured I'd switch it up a bit to guarentee an interest in it. I have about 30 rows on the sleeve. (The pattern said to do the sleeves on size 8's. I did. It was too loose. So I ripped about 20 rows and went to 7's) It has been in slow motion all weekend. We are getting carpet in the Huba and the master bedroom in two weeks. We are repainting the walls and trim in each of the rooms before the new carpet goes in. Huba picked a Valspar paint that is a greenish tan. It is really pretty. In the natural light it is on the tan side and in indoor lighting it is a green tone. We also hauled his bed out to the garage and per his request I painted it black. I'll post pics soon. So none the less very little knitting went on this weekend. On the flip side the entire family has been riding together for school and work. It is only about a 5 min detour for DH to drop me off at work and well with the price of gas.... think of all the yarn I could buy. Also it gives me about an hour a day of knitting GUILT FREE!
