The Backs Done!

I finished the back of my green shell this afternoon and cast on for the front. Since only the first couple of inches is lace and the rest is stockinette stitch, it goes very fast. I'm really loving this yarn, the color and the pattern! I can't wait till it's done and I can wear it. We have a busy week ahead though, so not sure how much I'll be able to work on it.

I've also finished a few inches on the CeCe sweater but it'll go fast once I can work on it all the time. I love the yarn I'm using and think I'll wear it alot. Might make my next one in red too, like Bonne Marie is on her second one.

No pictures to show cause, well, it's still green and I'd rather wait and show it when it's either blocking or done. I do need to block my green vest I finished a few weeks ago and also the button bands and collar on my Lo Tech Sweater, but, I'm having too much fun with this green!

The Baby Girl is walking tonight (6 p.m. - 6 a.m.) for the Relay for Life with the band. BTB and I might go down at 11 tonight to hear her play in the Jazz Band, but I've been up since 5:30 so not too sure I'll be awake. I went to my grandkids school this morning for Muffins with Mom. Since Mom was working I filled in. They live an hour from me so I had to leave my house at 6:30 and let me tell you, that's EARLY for someone that doesn't usually get up till 7 or 7:30! Even Libby didn't budge when I got up! The muffin (blueberry) was good though, and it's always fun seeing those 3 smiling faces!

Just so it's not totally pictureless, here's Libby and Squirt lazing out on the deck in the sunshine.

Have a good weekend everyone.

Happy Knitting

Congratulations on accomplishing so much! I can't wait to see a picture of it when it's done.

Phoebe lies just like Libby is in the picture. (In fact, she's doing it right now!) How can that be comfortable to have one's front legs forward and back legs to the side?!

Can't wait to see a pic of it when it's all done...I bet it will look stunning.

I'm sure it will be gorgeous when finished. And just think, you will be more than ready for St. Patrick's Day next March.

Now those look like some happy animals, laying in the sun.
