Putting The Pieces Together

Another week of Yarn Along here.

These past weeks have been stressful, and even my knitting has been falling behind. I described my slow progress on the top I’m working on last week. Progress continues at the same slow pace, but now I have almost finished both sleeves and am nearly ready to put the pieces together!

Please excuse my dirty floor.

As for reading, I’m still working on The Red Tent, and it continues to be very good and interesting.

  1. Your sweater is so pretty – I love the bottom especially. Good for you getting to Knit Group. I understand as I shy away from groups where I don’t know very many people. I overcame the fear and found a couple of great spinning groups where I made some really good friends.
