First, I want to thank everyone who commented to my last post. It's nice to know there is a place where others can relate to my anguish over a sweater that doesn't fit properly. I am happy to report that on Thursday night I sat down and attached the second sleeve. It is an official FO now. I did try it on again and while it does fit in some places, it doesn't in others and that's ok. It is still wearable and maybe I can snap a picture of myself in it in the near future.
Friday night I decided I was ready to reward myself with starting a new little project for the summer. Like my sis, I am knitting the Lacy Skirt with Bows from "Greetings From Knit Cafe". (I can be a lemming too.) I wasn't sure if I was going to knit the skirt in two separate pieces or in the round. So I thought that until I decided, I would go ahead and knit up the initial lace pieces. I mean, I did have until I got to the fifth piece to really make my decision because at that point the pieces are knitted into one piece.
On Sunday the verdict came to me. I decided to knit them seperately, but at the same time. I am actually a little further along than this picture below shows. I didn't feel like pulling out the camera again. I am using Elsebeth Lavold's Hempathy yarn in colorway Red Roses. There is ribbon that will go with this skirt that I will share once Mr. Mailman delivers it to me from South Carolina.
