Last night we were required to attend the school fine arts show. It was awesome knitting time. I got a lot of odd looks, but it was so worth it. I will say that it's a good thing that I need very little light to knit though. The biggest problem was being able to see to mark my pattern in order to keep up with which row I was on.
I was fussed at a little by one person and that was the five year old that I brought with me. "Mom, you're supposed to be watching!" Well, I was watching and listening. I'm multi-talented that way. After all, God made Moms to be multi-taskers and that's what I was doing. I watched my Eldest sing and then had to sit through the rest of the grades do their thing while clicking away with my needles.
This is the progress that I made on the second side:
It's gotten so that I can't sit down and not be doing something these days. I get all fidgety and feel like I'm not being productive. Knitting fulfills a very valuable niche in my life that way. It's a portable, practical hobby that's relaxing and productive. What's not to like about that?
Anyway, I feel like I'm making good progress on this sweater. Just a little more time and I'll be finished with the body and will be able to get cracking on the sleeves. I do wish that I had converted this to be done in the round though so that I could try it on as I go, but oh well.
