so, I lied (kind of)

I said I was working on sleeves this weekend, didn't I? Well, I ran out of yarn for the sleeves of the installment sweatshirt jacket Friday night and just couldn't make myself spin any more. (But I did get pretty far along before I ran out.)

It was too dang hot to work on the Fearless Fair Isle. I couldn't see well enough to make myself work on the railroad stitch socks (darn that navy blue yarn). Notice all the rationalizations to keep me from working on my WIPs?

So I started (and finished) something new!

This is another baby sweater for Parkland hospital. Sirdar Snuggly dk yarn (50 grams/191 yds) and my own design. And I didn't lie completely - look, there are sleeves!

I'll probably whip up a hat and booties to go with this, since I've got plenty of this yarn.

But now, on to things with deadlines - this sock-

must look like the other sock -

in 9 days. Time to get a move on.

Okay, that doesn't count. At all. See, if you run out of yarn, that can't be helped, right? And if it's too hot to have a wool FI sweater on your lap while you work the sleeve, that can't be helped either. So, perfectly logical to me.

That's one cute little sweater!

Nothing you could do about it.
