Sleeve Update 3

The second sleeve to the Fogarty Creek Blazer is coming along slowly. It would probably help if I stop getting distracted by games on my ipod. I love the knit counter app I have, but knitting goes really slowly when I play a level in my game after every round of knitting. I'll also make better progress when I stop focusing on the quilts. My last quilt is scheduled to be finished this weekend (by which it is understood that I'm superwoman and there are 72 sleepless hours in every day.) I have reached the end of the first skein of yarn which means I'm one third of the way through the first sleeve. I love how this sweater is looking so far and can't wait to wear it next winter. Hopefully it will be done by then.

To answer Ginny's other question, I'm currently reading listening to When the Heart Cries. It's another Amish fiction book, but takes a much different approach than many of the other authors I've read. Hannah is unhappy with her life as an Amish woman and is in love with a Mennonite when she's raped by an Englischer. It's the first book in the Sisters of the Quilt trilogy and I can't wait to see how this story unfolds.

  1. I had to laugh at your post...this is exactly why my house is never totally clean...clean a little, go sew...teach a little...go sew...

    Let's hope my kids are better educated than the house is clean!

    Thanks for the smile and as a "knitter" appreciater....great progress!
