Green Sleeves

Knitting furiously on Saturday wielded me great results. No it wasn't a gold medal, like Michael Phelps, but I did manage to complete sleeve #2 of Buddy Bill's sweater.

Even better than that, after some concentration and studying, and quite a bit of courage, I gathered up my sense of adventure and sat down today to join the sleeves to the body! All aboard for the short rows and learning of wrap-and-turns. The yoke of this sweater is now commencing!

Absent-Minded Professor has been cheering me on. Yay, Mom! He won't learn to knit, but he's always interested to see how my projects come together.

Maybe there will be a Cobblestone sweater in his future.

Yay! I love it when I reach the yoke portion of a sweater. :)
