This Time For Sure....

Yes folks, it took not 1, not 2, not even 3, but 5 attempts to cast off the bottom of this sweater correctly. Correctly meaning it made it past my arm pits, over my belly and able to rest on my hips AND have a bit of 'sproing' to it, so that when the day comes that my hips and belly are not the size they are today the bottom of this sweater will still fit me. I am putting it out there for this to mean that both will be smaller.

Yes, I admit it, I did a Viv. But let us face it folks, it is Saturday, and I have been frantically trying to get this right (icluding a run to the LYS for advice - and yarn of course), so I am not really looking my best. I will save that for once the sleeves are on. I can honestly say I am hoping that will happen really soon, so that I can wear this one once or twice before it is time to put it away. After all we have had SNOW off and on all day here in Viginia Beach. Can you believe it??!! You could have nocked me over with a feather. Infact yesterday I was telling people they were nuts for actually listening to the weather guessers. But alas now it is just sunny out and windy and not a flurry in sight.

Well I am off to go start on my sleeves. Have a great weekend everyone!!
Remember Life is what you make make it GREAT!!

Well, 5th time must be the charm because it looks great. I can't believe you had snow recently!!! It is mid 80s here and not even half way through spring. I won't be able to wear a sweater until October.

Yeah, about those socks . . . I'm going to start them over, though probably not before Saturday, I made an error
