Actual Knitting!If you head outside today, watch for low-flying pigs - the Redskins FINALLY won a game, Baby A slept through the entire night for the first time in MONTHS (stupid teeth), and I managed to finish the left front of my new knitting project!
I'm working off of a Sirdar pattern (Donegal Tweed DK 8336), which I had purchased in the very early days of my knitting. When I pulled out the pattern to cast on, I noticed that it had (shudder) drop shoulders. Ew. EW EW EW. I'm sure drop shoulders look good on someone out there, but NOT ME, unless I'm dressing up as a linebacker.
So a little bit of math and a few experiments yielded a satisfactory set-in sleeve design.
The yarn is the scrumptious grey cormo cross I bought at Rhinebeck 2008, and apparently a love of cormo runs in the family:
And while I watched football and "knit" with Baby A, Abby and S took it upon themselves to absorb some excess solar energy.
