Progress Day # 15

It's within my grasp. See the division in the middle? I have actually begun the V for the neckline! How is this all possible? Well, as gross as this is going to sound, I came home sick from work yesterday with a stomach bug. I thought it was pretty innocous until I heard that some 1300 students from a high school not far from here all had stomach virus. So far no one else here has had any symptoms (knock on wood!) - but the result of being home was being able to work on this more.



I can't say I'm loving working with two balls at once - especially when they are big. As you can see, I filched two of Willow's hair scrunchies to harness the inactive ball while knitting.

To finish, I need to finish knitting the last 4-5 inches for the front, seam the two pieces, weave in the ends, and do the edging at the neck and arms. I think I can do this in a day and a half (it's Saturday morning as I write this)...

Ha! working 2 balls at once?! ROFL. That's the usual situation I believe. I have a dirty dirty mind. I apologize to Jo's mom if she reads this :)

Trini,

Don't worry - I think my Mom is much earthier than I am!

I'm glad I'm not the only one with a mind that always heads in that direction!!!

Awesome, awesome job, Jo!!! I knew you could do it!! Wishing you lots of concentrated knitting and seaming time between tonight and tomorrow... and hope you're feeling better and on the mend soon. Yikes!! Stomach bugs are the worst. Take care and go for the gold!! :-)
