1 skein so far

The original intent was to make the sleeves first so that I could check my gauge without a huge commitment on my part. DUDE. The cast on for just one sleeve is 118 stitches! What you see above is only 1 skein's worth of yarn. My gauge, by the way, is dead on!

I love the design in this pattern. The color red in the picture above is much closer to the actual color than the pics from yesterday showed. This is a much bluer, deeper red and is gorgeous.

After how soft the comfy yarn was from the last project though, this wool yarn feels horrible. It felt fine before I played with the comfy. I'm spoiled now.

I'm both looking forward to and dreading my weekend. On the good side, I have my spinning class on Saturday. On the bad side, it's my last class. Also on the bad side, the Eldest and his Dad are off on a Cub Scout camping trip to Raccoon Mountain Caverns in TN. I will be stuck here with the Youngest all by myself and to top it off, he's gone and caught another cold. It is highly likely that I will be getting very little sleep over the next couple of days thanks to that cold. But, I will live.

Here's hoping you have a great weekend, even if I don't!
