Lucky and Elly

Here it is, the finished back of Lucky:

I think it looks pretty good! The yarn (Brown Sheep Cotton Fine) is really soft and it has a nice feel to it, knit up. It's not heavy like a lot of cottons. If you like this pattern but are terrified of the amount of time a sweater on size 3 needles (size 2 in my case) will take, never fear. It moves really quickly. I got another 6 inches or so done on the planes and in the airport Monday and Tuesday.

I'm recovering from the UK loss. In Cleveland, it seemed like everyone I told I was from Kentucky responded with, "did you see that game?" I didn't crawl into a corner and cry, that's a sign I'm on my way to recovery! 199 days until Midnight Madness!

It was a beautiful day here today. It got into the 70's and was sunny. I stuck the dogs outside this evening. Elly is a dog that wants to be where I am at all times and doesn't particularly care for the great outdoors. I came back into the living room to find her staring in the door, practically pleading with me to let her in. Look at that poor face. I'm such a mean Mom!

    Good job on Lucky! That expression from Elly is just pathetic! How do they do that??

    Awww, poor baby girl! She looks like she's saying "Mommie, peez yet me in! I pomise to be a googirl!"

    Way to go on Lucky! I am starting on a pattern from Interweave Knits called Cable 8 Sweater. You can see it on my blog, when you get a chance!
