Packed up the knitting, jumped in the car and drove the 3 miles La Ti Da. Plenty of sunshine, but still not enough warm. Ended up sitting in the car with the windows up in the sun and being quite toasty! Ahhh.
I had my ipod with sermons by my favorite preacher (Patrick Mead - you can google him) and I sat, knitted, and got fed spiritually for about 2 hours. That is one fine way to spend a chilly afternoon...and one of the things I love about being retired...afternoons!
My little husband showed up, invited me to dinner at our favorite little Deli and to a movie. Dinner was good and because we are old we decided to watch a movie DVD on the computer instead of driving and hour or more to the nearest theater....and that's one of the things I love about getting older...movies in my jammies in my bed with my little husband and the mattress pad warmer! Really. Date night doesn't get much better than that. And I got to keep knitting.
Wanna see how much I have gotten done? There are a couple of 'places' but, for a first cardigan and only the second project, I am quite pleased and excited about getting it done...I can see the end!
So, it will have sleeves and it is supposed to be
11' from the underarm to the hem...might make mine
a bit longer...might need another skein of yarn.
Can you see the arm seam thingy? Front
And the button hole?
Makes me feel like a knitter, sort of.
I'm only doing the top 3 button holes.
I am quite sure that exactly as soon as I get it done the weather will turn unbearably balmy. Not a problem. I will visit someplace air conditioned!
**** 2 hours later....this is what happens when you lay your knitting down unattended!
Skippy Jo Lohr happy as can be.
