That's right cupcakes! While we'd been talking, ToolMan had entertained himself by walking the neighborhood, people watching, and window shopping. About the time we were winding down, he took orders for Cupcake Jones and returned with four What's Up Doc? and one Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.
Three weeks I've been working on this thing and it still looks like a lump. A bigger lump, but still a lump. I'm somewhat worried about having enough yarn to finish. I know, helluva time to think of that, isn't it? The pattern called for the sleeves to be knit up from the cuff and joined to the body then knit up to the neckline. Because I barely have the yarn yardage the pattern calls for, I decided to knit the top six rows of the sleeves (starting with a provisional cast on), joining them and knitting up to the neck. Then I'll do the neckline and button bands before picking up the sleeve stitches and knitting them down. I hope I have enough for long sleeves but if I only make it to 3/4 sleeves, I can live with that.
Excuse me, but now I have to get back to slogging up the yoke on this thing.
