My Something green is going much more quickly than the last time I attempted it.
Just 2 more inches to go on the body and then I get to start the sleeves! I used my lifted increase and I’m very pleased – you can see the increase in the purl sections, but it isn’t anywhere near as obvious as doing a m1 increase was. The sweater is fitting very well – it’s on track to have about a 32″ bust including the button bands, and that’s just perfect for me!
I’m wondering if I should add some length to the sweater. I tend to think no, since the swingy style would be unflattering if too long. I probably think that because of my green gable, which I’m wearing today, and which isn’t the longest thing ever. I love it anyway, fortunately I like the look of a long tank under a sweater!
I’m feeling a bit better today, thank goodness. The swelling is going down, and I’ve been able to switch to ibuprofen instead of the vicodin the dentist gave me. I hate the way that pain medicine makes me feel, and I wasn’t able to work this weekend – I only managed one mass yesterday, and that was really pushing things. I do feel able to teach today, so it seems I am getting better.
Sarah Jane is sitting in my lap, making typing difficult. I swear, I’ve never had a cat that needed to be so close to you all the time. It’s adorable, of course, although I don’t think the other cats see it that way.
Thanks to everyone who added me as a friend on goodreads, as well as to those who agree with my introverted ways – I’ll respond individually, but isn’t it neat to see how many of us there are?
