Really! Go give! It's for women, which I feel strongly about! I'm not a religious person, but this is a great thing. And, she has 4 year old boys, just like my Baby Boy. And, even better, her name is Stacey too! Hee! Hee!

to a screeching halt!!! Why?
I have the ugliest infected finger! And even something as light and little as yarn, dragging across it hurts so bad! So, no knitting. What the hell do people who don't knit do with their time?? I have to figure this out. I even have an FO to show off, but I can't get past the finger! It making typing tough also!
So a teaser of my FO until I am up to it.
I know. I have been absent. School is done. Next year, I will have a Kindergartener! Eeek! And Baby Boy will be in the Pre-K 4 year old program! I never pictured this part of my life when I pictured myself with children. Not sure why. But this is a whole new world as they get older. Anyway, Big Boy has started T-ball practices. We hope we can make it through the whole season this year! Remember last year? No broken bones has been our motto for this year. We will see...
I got a wonderful package from my Monkey Sock Swap 4 Pal, Angela! Thanks again Angela! Here is the loot-
There was some fabulous stuff in there! And the socks fit great! They are made with Shibui Knits in what I think is the Pagoda color. I LOVE THEM! I have a thing for orange right now, not sure why.
In other news, I have started my first adult sized sweater! Yeah me! And it is for me! I had some sort of wild hair on 5/23. Swatch, swatch, swatch and off I went! I am doing Mr. Greenjeans in Cascade 220, color 9435, that I had stashed for this sweater last year!!!! I am 3 inches from having the body done! Then the sleeves left. I am feeling this knit! Here is the one issue I am concerned with. I bought the yarn and worked out the details for this sweater a while ago. Hence the title, -25. I have lost 25 pounds!!! And still going!!! So it was a little big on top, but I think it will work!! I want it to nip in at the waist and so far so good!!! Here is a progress shot-
I am already planning my next one!!! I think it will be a summer top next. And Hubby wants a sweater, and has picked out The Brick Pullover. And the Boys have asked too! I think they will get sweater vests. They even put in color requests! Orange and red for Big Boy! And purple and red for Baby Boy! I am not going to argue with them!!
A few more FO's next time, which will hopefully be sooner rather than later!
