I thought I'd give you a quick update on how my projects are coming along. I really liking the sweater, as you can tell, I've gotten quite a bit done. I wish more, but one has to make a living right? They can't knit all the time -- although that would be nice! I'm just about to start decreasing for the armholes. Once I get that done, I hope the rest of the back will go quickly. One would think it should since there will be less stitches to contend with.
Also, here's an updated pic of the socks that I'm working on. It seems like I'm not making very much progress (and I'm probably not!), but I enjoy working on the sweater more so at home. The socks are just a "take-along" project and basically the only time I get to work on them is break-times at work. I guess I should take into account that I'm using fingering weight yarn and size 1 needles! But they will be great when I finish them.
Have a very Merry Christmas everyone! And if you know how, keep knitting!!! And if you don't know how, gosh darn it, LEARN!! It's so much fun! :-)
