Knitting Updates

Here (finally) is a picture of the 5 hour Baby Sweater:
I'm really pleased with it, especially in this yarn! I hope it makes some new mommy happy.

I'm getting to the home stretch with Lia. As of right now, I'm two-thirds of the way through the second sleeve. I'm pretty sure I should block it before I sew the sleeves in. I think. I don't really know, since I've never sewn sleeves into a sweater before, and I've never blocked anything in the round. I'll be doing some research on that later.

After Lia is done, I'll be finishing up my Princess Mitts and finding a new traveling project. I think it will be an Oriental Lily for 4th Trimester, but we'll see. I also have a new part of my secret project to work on, another sweater for myself to swatch, and I'd really like to start on the Carmen Banana kit my husband bought me last year.

I have very few thoughts about the mountains of housework that should be getting done, and should probably try to readjust my priorities.

It's really hard.

Happy Knitting!

The cardi is very cute! I'd need to work on my priorities too, but for some reason sewing is much more fun that doing laundry. :/
