Waiting on calves to be born*.

Waiting on cheerleading practice to be over.

Ooops....no picture of cheerleading. I couldn't see through the sea of 150 girls last night to get a picture of Jessie in the very, very, very back.

Waiting on basketball practice to end.

And while I wait? I work on this:

The back is above and the front is below. Can anyone see the mistake I made in the cables on the back?

See it now?

Todd asked if I was ripping back to fix the twisted cable. Um....NO. All I have is the hood, the button band and the sleeve bands to do**. Jessie opted not to have long sleeves so it would get done quicker.....smart girl! Since this was supposed to be a Christmas present, I'm flying through it now....hopefully tonight it will be done for her to wear tomorrow


*technically, the first cow is not due until March 6th, but they could calve early, and the suspense nearly kills me this last month - heifer or bull - good or bad - healthy or not?

**if I had noticed the twisted cable sooner than 10" away from it, I might have ripped back. But since I didn't notice it until everything was seamed together and I was several inches into the hood - I'm not ripping out that much.....

I'm with you on the ripping back. There is a limit! Besides, it's still a super cute sweater. :)

You're rubbing off on me...I'm starting to think maybe I could learn to knit this winter. Saturday volleyball tournaments will be starting soon, and it seems like something I could sit in the bleachers & do in between games. Just some washcloths to start.

Ahhh - the life of a busy mom . . . . waiting *s* Good thing you have such great portable projects to pass the time.

I love the color! It is going to be beautiful and I can't tell anything is wrong. I wouldn't rip it out, myself.:)

The good news is that so many things are worth the wait! You have a busy spring ahead though!
