Well, it is a holiday and I am working...






Can you believe that I am working on a holiday? It sucks. At least I found out that my mother will be in town on Wednesday, the 23rd. I am so excited! We can relax, watch TV and knit away. I will probably take Friday off and maybe half of Thursday as well! That would be wonderful. On the knitting front, I am finishing up the second sleeve of the Mr. Greenjeans cardi and I should have enough yarn to finish the sleeve, but I am not sure about the ribbing around the border. I bought three skeins of Dream in Color worsted (Dusky Aurora - love the color and the yarn!). I knew that it would be close, but now I am thinking that I will definitely not have enough. Thank god there is no dye lot on that yarn, but I have to act quick as this particular color tends to sell out. Sucks, but true. What do you think? Do I have enough? It will be close as what is shown attached to the sleeve that I am currently working on is all that I have. I also modified the pattern to made the sleeves a bit longer and started the cabled rib a bit earlier as it looked better on me that way. I only bought three skeins as that was all that I could afford. I could make the ribbing around the collar and the left and right sides different, but I don't know if I will like that or not? I wanted this cardigan to be a staple in my wardrobe that I could wear with any color and if I make the ribbing a specific color than that will limited my choices of what I can wear it with. I found a website that is carrying it for only 16.50 and will only 5.00 shipping, but I don't what my husband would say. Any suggestions??

I suggest you do whatever your husband says. He's a gem.
