ON MY NEEDLES
Momma Mia Sweater
The color in this photo is very close to true. This is proving to be a really awesome knit and I’m in the home stretch. The only thing holding me back from finishing is the last four row repeat, x18. 😐 It’s at this point in my big projects that startitis rears its ugly head. Doing the math – 4 rounds at approximately 264 stitches per round equals 1056 stitches, times 18 repeats….is entirely too depressing to even think about at the moment. Read through to the end to get the total stitch count**.😋. Oops, the last pattern page reads, work even until two inches short of desired length, then knit two inches of seed stitch. Should have read through…. All joking aside, I love the way this sweater is knitting up. The Knitpicks Cotlin is perfect, with its drape. This summer has been the season of the tunic. I can’t get enough of them and they are everywhere!! Resistance is FUTILE!!!
The new Knitbot pattern book I ordered came in yesterday and I must.knit.all.the.things, preferably before next week because…well just because I’m a knitter and that’s what knitters do.

IN THE BACKGROUND
The bathroom remodel continues. Jeff the Contractor says it will be finished Monday. We can live with that. Mac the Cat has a blocked tear duct, necessitating eyedrops twice a day. Yikes!! It’s working, though, his eye looks much better, but it’s hard to tell if he appreciates it, him being a cat and all. And finally, we’ve nearly finished eating the leftovers from the family reunion and the icebox is starting to look normal again.
Don’t forget the party!
