Spring Days

I hope everyone ignored my whining in yesterday’s post.¬† I was just tired.¬† I’d had about 5 hours sleep each nice since Sunday and it added up.¬† I got to bed early(er) last night and feel worlds better today.¬†

Shaped V-Neck

Last night I got the twins to bed and I sat down with Shaped V-Neck and that slug-a-thon in the Bronx.¬† I’ve discovered that baseball is probably the perfect knitting sport.¬† Plenty of slow times to look at the needles if necessary and you can look up to see the good stuff.¬† Interesting game last night for sure.¬† Mom, the Yankee fan, joined me.¬† I’ll miss tonight’s rematch as it is the beloved SnB night.¬† Though, knowing how long these two teams slug it out, the game will probably be in the 6th Inning when I get home at 10:30 ;)¬† Needless to say by my cheery demeanor today, that I didn’t make it through the end of the game.¬† I turned out the lights when it was 9-9.

I did finish knitting the body of Shaped V-Neck.¬† I continue to be pleased as punch that I chose to make this sweater with the dead Orangebell.¬† I’ll do the ties this evening and start the sleeves ASAP.¬† I’m finding that with a touch of project monogamy, I can actually finish things.¬† I think the next project to get the full attention when this is done, is the Clapotis in the Lion and Lamb.¬† I recently found the other two skeins of yarn so I can resurrect it.¬†¬† With monogamy, I should be able to finish it quickly, considering I whiped out the first one (being worn daily now mind you) in about a week.

I’m having lunch today with my favorite Bronx resident.¬† The weather is gorgeous and currently 68F.¬† Ahhh spring.¬† I even put on a skirt today.¬† Oo la la.

Craft on!

    Loving the orange-resurrection shaped cardigan. 🙂 Hope you enjoy lunch. It’s gorgeous out there (but I’m so not pulling out the skirts yet, too cold when I leave in the morning!)!

    One of the best things about the Shaped V-neck is when you finish knitting it, you can just start wearing it (after weaving in ends and sewing up the armpit hole). No sewing on buttons or seaming or zippers. I didn’t even block mine!

    Your V-Neck is looking great! Project monogamy…what a concept. ;o)
