Red wine and white yarn. Unfortunately, I'm not willing to give up either, so I'll just have to be extra careful. Almost done with the back on this project, and I cannot put it down.

I spent the day at the science museum with the 4th grade, so I deserve this.
(Looked for you Holli, didn't see you wandering the halls...)


I cannot wait to be done with this and wear it. It's not there yet, but I love it so far. The blocking worked out great on the front, and I'm hopeful on sizing. We'll see how it goes as I put a sleeve together next.

In other knitting news, I've been a little delayed on finishing up Zoe's Sheldon. I use old stuffed animals instead of buying new stuffing around here. Mafioso style, the unloved animals in our place are sometimes never heard from again. (We had a big B list so, the kids never noticed.)

However, the B list has dwindled this past year and it seemed the next guy to "disappear" might have caused a stir. Patiently, I had to wait around till a friend offered up a new volunteer to donate his insides. Today I got a great donor, and no one else around here had to vanish.
They can feel safe - for now.

So yeah, cardigan today, turtle tomorrow.
Wine now. It's not really a bad idea at all.

I've been told that rubbing white wine onto a red whine spot will make it go away... just in case you need the information.

I'll make sure all my stuffed animals have their donor cards filled out...

Puff said it best -- a day at MOS with a class of 4th graders definitely warrants red wine with the knitting of a white sweater! And the sweater is GORGEOUS! I can't wait to see it all assembled. Keep up the great work, Thea.

Be very, very careful!!! I know it will turn out beautifully.
