Slow Stitching

 I got a little more stitching done this week on the Noah’s Journey BOM. I’m about halfway through the last of this month’s stitcheries - the very cute pigs.

I’m also slowly continuing to work on Abbie’s sweater. I’ve started the second sleeve. However, I got a bit side tracked. I have new yarn sitting here waiting for a new sweater start. While talking with Gail one evening last week on FaceTime, I started digging around in my various baskets looking for the 2.25mm needles and the short cable that I use when casting on and doing necklines in the round, thinking that I would cast on for the new sweater. While digging in one of those baskets I found a sweater that I’d started last winter and had almost finished. There was about an inch left on the second sleeve and the ribbing to do before it could be counted as finished. I’d totally forgotten about it. So, instead of finishing Abbie’s sleeve, I finished up on that sweater. It’s a pattern called GrenadineI have a few ends left to weave in and it will be ready to wear. The colour fades on this project didn’t work as well as some of the others I’ve done. But it is still soft and warm and cozy to wear and will work quite well for casual kicking around and being comfortable while staying home and not going anywhere.

I’m going to link up to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching and then do some more on Abbie’s sweater. If I put it off too much longer it won’t fit her. As it is I think I am going to have to get creative and add some length to it. I think it is already too short but it’s hard to tell while it is in pieces.

I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
