Blur, blur, blur

No post yesterday. Yesterday was just a blur. My boss is on vacation this week, so as "second in command" it's twice the work and none of the glory. The whole workday went by in a blur. After work, I had an eye doctor appointment, complete with dilation. Talk about blur . . . I could barely function.

To further expand on the blur subject, here is a blurry picture of my sweater progress - I was in a rush to get it done in one shot so I could get off to work without being too late. The second sleeve is almost done. Only 1 1/2 inch in st s to go (and with this thick yarn that should only be about 6 rows), and then the BO and decreases and it's off the needles. Then the seam sewing and neck band knitting and it's done. Oh yes, and I have finally thought of a name for it. MISFIT. Why??? Because I don't think it's going to fit. I'm trying to remain optimistic, but at the same time I don't want to kid myself. I have become okay with the fact that, as my first sweater, it may turn out to be one very sad piece of clothing. Or, it may come out okay and wearable, but not wearable by me. If that's the case, I have a skinny little "niece" that might look really cute in it. So no worries, right?? At the very least, it's a good learning experience.

So, I'm looking forward to the weekend. Fun pool party to go to (or just-hang-out party if the weather stays cool) and lots and lots of knitting. I'll also be happy to have more time to work on the blog - taking more pictures to upload (non-blurry ones this time!!!) and maybe adding some fun new links. Stay tuned!!!

Your sleeve looks great! Or maybe it's just the blurriness ;-). I can't wait to see the finished product - I think it's going to be fabulous, even if it doesn't fit... It will always have a place in your heart as your first sweater.

Have a great weekend!
