The good news is that I did finish the second front piece for Forestry on Tuesday, and yesterday I worked the first six and a half inches of both sleeves. If I can finish a sleeve today and a sleeve tomorrow than I can seem up on Saturday and get started on the collar. Both are done in simple stockinette, so it should be a breeze. Of course, all other craft/hand work for the week has been tossed aside in order to accomplish this...but then having a brand new sweater to wear next week will make it totally worthwhile.
For no good reason, I decided yesterday to participate in Socktoberfest. I have three simple goals for the month.
- Teach my husband to knit his own socks
- Use sock yarn leftovers to make socks for both girls
- Knit one pair for myself (to replace the pair I'm wearing right now which threatens to fall apart at any second...which will be sad)
I could probably come up with a whole host of other nutty goals....but the fact of the matter is that I have to finish the Pixie's sweater and start on my husband's cardigan ASAP!
