My Littlest Graduate

No knitting here at all, just shameless cute-kid promotion. That's Auden at her "Moving Up Ceremony" from pre-school today. Kindergarten, here we come.

The reason there's no knitting picture is I am making such a godawful mess of the ugly striped sweater. I believe have done everything possible wrong on the first sleeve I'm working on – increased in the wrong places, increased the wrong way, used random numbers of stitches etc. But I am so un-enthused about this sweater that I can't bear to rip it out, because I might never go back. (Plus, it's a ribbed sleeve, the mistakes aren't going to show, are they? That's my story ...)

I need to start something fun, and then use it to reward myself for progress on the ugly striped sweater. (Kathy's idea.) I am thinking Monkey socks in my new STR or Koigu (It was on sale! I couldn't help it!).

Back to real life ...
