Greetings from Puppy Land, where everything is snuggles and puddles and please-for-the-love-of-all-that-is-holy-don't-chew-on-THAT, and where there is only precious little time for knitting these days. The culprit:
Lucky for her, she's ridiculously cute.
But! I did manage to knit a bit.
For instance, I managed to knit enough of my Baby Sophisticate sweater to realize that I have not enough yarn to finish. Boo! Looks like I'm about 12 yards short on sleeve #2, so I'm currently trying to decide how to remedy the situation.
Cute sweater though, eh? Think the recipient would notice if it had only one sleeve? Design element? No? Yeah, me either. Sigh. Stash busting is hard, man.
In other news, I'm nearly done with the back of my Austin Hoodie, and loving how it's looking, especially the woven section and the ribbing (Is it weird that I desperately want to block it RIGHT NOW?)...
I'm hoping to finish up the back and get started on the fronts in the next couple of days because I expect the sleeves and hood to take a soul-suckingly long time.
For now, I have a question if anyone's game. I'm working on a row where I knit X number of stitches across the back, then put Y number of stitches on a holder for the neck, then work X number of stitches on the other side, and begin working up the left shoulder. The pattern doesn't say to break the yarn here, or to join new yarn on the other side of the held stitches, but that's what I need to do, right? I'm sure it is, I'm the sort who obsessively follows directions, and it's not in there. Anyone care to nod at me before take the leap?
Then, after you solve all my problems, go check out the rest of the Work in Progress Wednesday posts. I'll see you there!
