On. Off.

Last week I realized that the end of August was fast approaching so I buckled down and got back to the business of knitting. My Central Park Hoodie had been languishing a bit due to smaller, more portable projects. This weekend I knit up to the hood and am now about half-way through. Go me! Hoods are almost as bad as sleeves for knitting, knitting, knitting and making almost no progress until you've magically knit past the point where X is supposed to happen. Once the hood is all knit up I have one more sleeve, a little bit of seaming, and buttonbands left to go. I'm hoping to have it done before I leave on vacation next week.

One of the small and portable projects is off the needles. The Playful Stripes Cardigan knit up quickly and I'm glad there are larger sizes available in the pattern because I'm pretty sure I'll want to knit another one in a couple of years for my larger size girl. The Little One seems pretty happy in it and has already christened it with apple juice (a special treat for her) since she refused to take it off. It fits great and has a little room to grow so she should be able to wear it through this Fall and Winter. Well, one can hope it'll last that long.
