GRRRRR! I finished the second sleeve for BOB and while I was trying to sew them on I found the front and back didn't match! One side is 10 rows longer - too much to fudge! I don't know what I am going to do, I'm setting it aside for now.

I started another baby sweater though, in Patons Look At Me in Electric Blue Veregated. It's turning out pretty nice so far. If my sister has a boy, it will be for her.

I'm almost half done the last sleeve for BOB. I have a funny feeling I'm not going to like it once it's put together....the stitches are pretty open and it's VERY drapey. But I'm so close I have to put it together to see how it works out.

I want to make an apple hat for my sister's baby, due next month. Someone emailed me a copy of the pattern, it's simple but really cute. I thought the red wool blend yarn I had would work but it's DK weight so too thin. I'm going to pick up some acrylic tomorrow I think, acrylic will be better since it's heading into summer and wool will be too hot even for a newborn.

I pulled out my unfinished BOB sweater and realized I am just one sleeve short of finishing it. It's got short sleeves so it should work up fast. It's also pretty easy knitting so I can work on it in spurts between baby care. I'd really like to finish this soon so I can wear it!

Still working on baby hats and stuff. I knit up 2 more hats, and a ball that I have yet to felt, so I am ready for another of the babies to arrive!

I've been working on more baby hats. I like hats right now because they are quick and easy, and can be put down and picked up without a lot of fuss. I tend to only have 5 or so minutes of knitting at any given time, so this is important. I haven't started the bigger projects I'm considering because they'd take a while to get started and require longer periods of attention. Maybe I'll do hats in the daytime and save bigger knitting for the evenings when my husband is home.
