T1 was feeling left out because T2 is having pizza at a friends and Hubby & I hit a local Mexican place for lunch. So, being the good mommy that I aspire to be, I brought him to our local Panera Bread for lunch and a couple of hours of high speed internet (our at-home options are sadly slow and limited).
As previously reported, I did finally start the Summer Open Cardigan. I forget the name of the yarn I am using (I wound it for something else) but it is a worsted wt. cotton/wool blend. So far, I really like it. I would worry about the gauge being a bit loose for my taste but I think that will be less of an issue once the neck band is on. This would be a quick knit were it not for a couple of things. It is my take-along project, so I am not working on it at home. At home, I either work on the Kandinsky cardi or the felted bags that are selling so well at the co-op. Also, do you remember how I knit through the car purchase the other night? It would have been more productive if I had remembered that I was right at the "divide for the arms" point. Instead, I knit 6 inches too far and had to rip back. Then, when I went to craft group on Tuesday morning, I did it again, and had to rip back 8 inches, (Eeeek!). Now I have divided for the arms and am knitting away at the body. There is some optional shaping further along. I have not yet decided whether to go with that or not.
