Damned if you do...

I've decided since the hoodie only needs sleeves, I'd work on it and try to make it one of my finished projects. Although, progress has been slow. Mostly because I like to do both sleeves at the same time, so they are both exactly the same length. Also, I'm always afraid I'll just end up with a one sleeve sweater. (Maybe I could start a new fashion trend.)

So here are is my meager progress on the sleeves.

Hey, what's that in the corner?? It couldn't be yet another Harlot poncho, could it? No, it can't be because I had said I wasn't going to start anything new until I finished some sweaters. It must have wandered in off the street while I got the mail.

Well, can you blame me? Super easy, super fast project. I have all this deep plum Paton's chunky and a sister-in-law who happens to love purple, and asked me for one. Ok, so maybe that's why the sleeves are going so slow.

I'm also thinking I need to finish Jess' sweaters as well, By the rate I'm going, she'll have outgrown them before I can finish.

Although with her cardigan, I have hit a snag. I wanted to do the sleeves in a solid color, but I have not found any Lorna's Laces shepherd bulky in a color I'd like to use. I think I may have to compromise, and pick a third choice color. We'll just have to wait and see.

Wednesday night I have a Stitch n Bitch, and I'm telling you I cannot wait to get out for a little bit. I love my family, but I don't always like the WEAR them, which is what has been happening lately.

Nate did offer an interesting proposition this weekend. (mind out of the gutter, Carma) :) I had half jokingly said something like, "so when do I get my turn of having run of the house while you and Jess are gone?" He then replied with, "Well, If you want to stay here when we go to Ohio at the end of the month. I wouldn't be offended."

I couldn't believe my ears. It could actually work! Except the whole reason for going to Ohio at the end of the month, is so that Nate and his family can celebrate his birthday. (we do this every year) So, I can either go, and lament over the lost opportunity, or I can stay home and feel incredibly guilty. I must say it's a toss up at the point.

  1. Well... (unless this will reverse the act of not being offended) if you want to stay home and have some "girl time" that weekend I could probably find it in my heart to drive out. :) Hey, it's something to think about so I'm just putting it out there.
