We took A to visit the Army Recruiter on Monday night -- she's a junior and is exploring her options. Yay for her, but it's too bad the Army doesn't have a need for interior designers... Anyway, we stopped at Home Depot on the way home and I bought some brass rods with the smallest diameter I could find so that I could weave them up the straight sides on sleeves and other knitted pieces to aid in blocking -- less pinning! I blocked the sleeves of the Cecil sweater last night and it seemed to work well. The jury's still out 'til I take out all the pins tonight and see how they look.
I was able to do a little more knitting on the back last night. I've finished the whole eyelet/rib shift part and am close to armhole shaping. It won't be long now!
I just found out that I'll get Friday afternoon off (paid -- woo hoo). If all goes as planned, taxes will be finished, Cecil will be nearing completion, and my Calmer will be here so I can get started swatching and all for Audrey. And maybe I'll have time to post some pictures!
