When we meant to Maryland Sheep & Wool this year the boy found some yarn that he rather liked. It happened to be on pretty good sale – a discontinued “boring” color. Score one for the home team! So I went ahead and bought all they had left (6 balls). Then when we got back home I ordered 2 more balls from WEBS to ensure that I had enough yarn for his long torso. As of 22.30 tonight the whole body is knit and all I have left is to pick up and knit the sleeves. I cast it on Sunday evening. 🙂 Guess who’s a rather happy girl? And the even happier boy? Well he’s modeling the sweater for you:
Oh yes and a snippet of last night’s conversation as I was measuring out his sweater:
the boy: I am glad you found knitting. Otherwise you would probably drive me crazy.
me: I wish you would find a hobby. 😉
