Pink and Growing

It's been a long, rough week. I'm still trying to catch up on sleep, and I'm not sure if that will actually happen this weekend or not (having to turn the clocks forward sure isn't going to help). Rainbow's been a little under the weather, and my sinuses are once again torturing me (I'm guessing due to the crazy weather). Needless to say, I really needed knit night last night.

I've been spending much of the week working on some deadline knitting, so it was nice to be able to take a break to work on my mom's sweater, which has now grown several inches below the underarm. I also just joined in the second skein of yarn, which means I got the whole yoke plus a bit more from one skein.

For a bit there last night, there were three of us around the table working on the same sweater, because two of my friends from the group are test knitting the pattern for me. I don't think that's ever happened before. Amy is the speed demon of the group and is just about done with the body. She's using the most cheerful shade of green for her sweater (click the link to see). I'm getting really excited to see all the testers finish up!

As soon as I finish up my own deadline project, this sweater will be my main focus for the next two weeks. I have a day off next Friday, and I'm planning on using most of it to work on this project. There's some spinning calling my name, too, though, so stayed tuned until Sunday to see what's happening on the wheel.

  1. I sympathize with you and your sinuses. Miserable here too and have been through 4 boxes of kleenex!
