Getting ready to bind off the body stitches this morning.
Bound off! I added 2.5 inches to the length, below the pockets, so that this would hit me just below where most of my pants sit on my hips. I’m both stunned and pleased that my back-of-the-pattern math seemed to yield a sweater that fits me well! (I’m a little anxious about the blocking — it might just get steam-blocked due to shower-proximity rather than a full out soak, as I don’t want it to grow too much.)
We’re trying things with the cone off today. So far, Boh has been mostly good about not licking his still-healing scar.
And then I made pancakes. These are a little grey/blue because of the blackberries in the batter, and they were delicious. I made a whole batch, and just finished off the rest for “lunch.” I didn’t even add any syrup to these — the berries were enough. (So good — the first from the farm this season!)
Here’s one more dark hallway shot of the first sleeve in progress. So far, my math guesstimating is working out well. I’m trying to be good about writing down how I’m adjusting the pattern so I can make the right sleeve match the left.
Time to put down the knitting for awhile — friends of ours (two-legged and four-legged friends) are on their way to hang out and take a walk along the path in the backyard. And the sun is out. A new week has begun.
Agnes has been flying off your needles! She looks really cute, and I like the added length.
Wow Agnes looks awesome on you! A record sweater knit time-wise. Kudos to you.
ok. now i am really in awe.
per your suggestion – i had chocolate ice cream covered in peanut butter last night. so delicious. thanks for mentioning that wonderful little dessert.
hope monday goes well!
Yay! I am so glad Boh is doing well :D And that Agnes is just flying! Can’t wait to see the FO :)
Hooray for Boh’s progress and Agnes’ too! This will be a much better week for the both of you.
Yay for math! It’s lookin’ good.
