raglan-ing along the back

Still being fiendish with Cigar. All weekend I'd pick him up whenever I had a spare moment. Now that B's more able to entertain himself, I had a few more of those. The amazing thing is I made all of this progress and still managed to cook dinner Saturday and Sunday, dusted, and kept up with the dishes. I've got less than 20 rows to go and the back is done. I should have it finished today. I've got a stitchers meeting at noontime. I'd love to be able to cast on the first sleeve tonight.

I did finish up the Olympic sweater on Friday night. It got a try on and is about an inch short. Hubby's trying to talk me out of ripping and knitting another inch, saying it should fit just fine next season when his tummy is smaller. I gave it a bath and will have him try it on again to see if it grew at all. It fits me well except the sleeves are way too long. I'll try to get a pic for tomorrow.

I swear Annette, I've said it before and I'll say it again... you are one of the best knitters I've ever seen -- your stitches are PERFECT. ALWAYS! Amazing work as usual.
