Yarn Along

I really didn't think I was going to post today.  I just felt like I had nothing to show.  I laid out my sweater to take a quick picture this morning and you know what?  It grew.
It almost looks like a sweater.  Or at least a vest.
How do you like that background?  My baby nephew has been visiting from CA and he's been rolling around that playmat.

I have another 11 inches on the body left to go.  If my calculations are correct, I'm getting about 5 inches per skein of yarn.  I should need a little more that 2 skeins to finish the body.  That leaves me with 9 skeins of yarn.  That will be plenty to finish the sleeves and the edging and shawl collar.  If all goes according to plan. And how often does that happen?
I almost feel like I want to bet against myself.  Will I be done with the body by next week?  Will I have gotten to the sleeves by then?

The funny thing about lots of stockinette is that it's a no brainer.  You can sit in front of the TV and do it for hours.  The problem is that it is so boring, I fall asleep while doing it.  Go figure....

Grateful for Ginny for linking us all up.

I see loads of progress! You will get the body done by next week and sleeves are a breeze, then you will be looking fabulous at Rhinebeck :)

Very nice yarn- you knit so fast, it will probably be done by next week...that's if you stop snoozing :)

I have to second Karen, you can see the progress and it does look like a sweater.
Now, knit away so we can see sleeves next week ;)

I hate when I feel like my knitting has turned into a black hole. It definitely looks like you ARE making progress.

Hope to see you at Rhinebeck in your lovely sweater.

Your sweater is looking good. The sleeves do go a bit slow. I agree.

good luck with the sweater - I love the yarn! ...just keep knitting, once you finish the body, sleeves will go fast.

Yeah, that is the beauty of stockinette! I love when I can knit for hours and not really pay attention to what I'm doing. Can't wait to see the progress!

I love the look of stockinette but find it tiresome to knit after a while. Love this sweater.

It's coming along wonderfully - I think we will see some sleeve action beginning next week for sure :o)

It looks great and that's such a great color - it will be perfect with jeans.
