|I've begun the trim! *happy dance*|
|The little line near his shoulders is a lifeline I put in |
just before splitting for the sleeves. The stray yarn on the
arms is holding the sleeve stitches.
Bub's Gramps sweater is coming along very nicely. Yesterday I started knitting the contrast color trim at the bottom of it. (Also Knit Picks Gloss DK - in the Robot colorway. Originally we considered just using a lighter blue, but Bub loves robots and I thought that would be fun, plus it still matches. Obviously he chose that option.) I don't think this ribbing will take very long - I need about an inch and a half before I bind off. I was able to do several rows last night, so I rather expect to have that portion done today. Then it will be time to pick up a sleeve ~ woohoo!
No picture of books today as I'm between reads again and I've not quite decided which I'll start next. I did pick up Chad Daybell's Martial Law from the library and read right through it; it was a very fast read! I still have The Minecraft Guide for Parents from a previous library run. I also picked up Gideon Smith and the Mechanical Girl (a Staff Pick on the shelf out front) and Exodus: A Memoir by Deborah Feldman, which was in their new arrivals area. I think I'll read that next, but we have family in town so I doubt I'll get much reading in again for a few days.
