I have picked up my Crossover Lace Sweater, but only one day this week. There is a rhythm to the decreasing lace pattern, and other than messing up the last row, it went fairly easily. I think I overloaded my brain with patterns. It happens. Sometimes you need some "mindless" knitting, and I left that out for a while. It's about balance.
Here's Little Man modeling the Big Blue Sweater. It's probably about a size 7 or 8, and he's not quite a 6, so he'll have a couple of years to grow into it.
I'm not sure if he REALLY likes it, as his favorite color is red at the moment. But I know he likes having his picture taken, so we're good for him modeling it.
I've made very slow progress, just a few rows, but it's progress, nonetheless. Here's a close-up:
It's something that takes a good bit of concentration, and that's in short supply. Of course, it's getting better, since I have some "mindless" knitting (Big Blue) to do while I watch TV or go to Knit Night.
In some other news, the Atlanta Area Shop Hop is coming - September 29th to October 7th. Several stores in the Atlanta area (9-10) are participating, and you purchase a passport for $1. You make a $10 purchase at any of the stores, and you get a stamp. Once you turn in your passport, you get put into a drawing for all sorts of prizes! It's a lot of fun, you find new shops or rediscover old ones, pick up some new stash, and get a chance to win more stash! The prizes are always really good too. I've seen them, although never won. Maybe this year, though!
