Front of Sweater

Image hosted by

The front of my sweater is blocking. I sort of had a dilemma with this. The instructions say to sew shoulder seams together and pick up stitches for the sleeves at the shoulder. So, do you sew everthing together and then block it? Or do you just block pieces as you go? Because when I do block the sleeves, they are going to be attached to the sweater. I guess I'll figure it out. I will be so happy to finish this. I am NOT a big project type person. I get bored so easily. But I am going to LOVE this sweater. It feels so good.

In looking at other blogs, I'm seeing so many things I love. The "Tempting" sweater is so cute. It looks like it would go rather quickly. I don't know that I'd want it for myself, but it would make a great gift. (ok, I'd LOVE it for myself...but only if I could lose about 20 lbs. before having to wear it) Wearing ribbing from top to bottom doesn't hide any flab if you know what I mean!

Tonight is baking night. There will be no knitting tonight for sure. I will make Irish Soda Bread and an Irish Whiskey Cake. Big St. Patrick's Day bash at my sister's house tomorrow. Admission requires the wearin of the green. Which also means that I have to find some time today to go shopping because I don't have anything green that actually fits me. The pressure is on!
