Not Quite

The Bug's sweater seems to be taking Forever. Working in the round is always that way. I guess it really isn't taking all of that long considering there won't be any sewing up at the end. I finished the first sleeve today and she wanted to try it on. After I took this picture we had to have a 20 minute conversation about how she did need the other sleeve, and no she couldn't eat yogurt in the sweater I hadn't even finished yet.

Lovely close up of the stitch pattern. It's mostly a 2x2x2x3 rib, which takes some getting used to. The pattern calls the cabling braiding. It doesn't use a cable needle you just knit into the second stitch on the left needle, then the first and pull them both off. Pretty neat. I'd wanted to have this done by the new year. Not for any reason I just like to set goals for myself. Falling short on this one. Ah well.

That is a great picture. The expression and the yarn in hand.
