Welcome back to Narragansett-land, everybody! I swear, I'm going to get this sweater finished soon, just not soon enough. It might still make the Easter deadline, though!
This week, despite having almost no time to knit, I managed to finish and bind off the waistband. Now I'm slowly (and with much hatred for knitting sleeves on dpns), working my way through sleeve #1. I would totally magic loop these if only I had a cable long enough to make it work, but alas. Some day, I'll get my Christmas present from Mr. Right (ETA September -- ugh), and this will stop being an issue. Until that magical day, I'll keep fiddling with these things.
Can't complain too much, though. It really is going pretty quickly. If only I could figure out how to avoid all this weird gappy business in the underarm (sorry about the blur!).
Thoughts, anyone? Barring any flashes of brilliance that might show up in the comments, I'll just stitch up the holes with the tail when I'm done. Worse things could happen, right?
Since that's all I have to report on the knitting front (soon people, I promise!), I thought I'd share some pictures of my favorite tree which spent last weekend bursting out with springtime.
I LOVE this tree. I have no idea what it is, but it puts on this amazing show for a few weeks every year and it's all kinds of awesome. It's also filled to the brim with bees to such an extent that you can actually hear the hum from 10 or so feet away. The whole thing is very cool.
And fleeting, since we went from sunny and 84 on Sunday to 34 and snowing like crazy today. It makes me extra glad I managed to snap a few pictures before all the blossoms get snowed off.
That's it for me this week, now I'm off to check out the rest of the WIPW entries. See you there!
