Fingers Itching for New Projects
On the Little Boy Green, I am already at the armhole shaping on the front, I have 30 rows left, each of which will get shorter and shorter. The sleeves I would like to do at the same time, but I think with the color work, I would get too tangled up and it would end up taking more time, so I will do them one by one and take good notes on where I do increases so they match up. After they are knit, then it will be time to weave in all eight bazillion ends, block the pieces and sew up the seams. That is the part I procrastinate on the most.
I will be doing the sleeves on my Cross Your Heart at the same time. I am almost finished with the front on it, and though it will take longer to do the sleeves at the same time than it would to do one, I will be finished with the knitting completely when I bind off the sleeves. Then, ends, blocking and sewing again. I'm hoping that this will be finished by Valentine's Day, so I can wear it. Also, so I can wear it to Madrona that weekend.
As for our family, don't come near us. Now even Rich is sick, he and Alexander are home from work/school, Elijah was up many times last night, I'm on the recovering end, so are Dominic and Amira (with the aid of medication), but we're all still sickies. I'm praying that Alexander will be well enough to sing in the school Christmas pageant this Friday.
I know this feeling!
