WiP It Wednesday

You know, I may actually get this sucker finished before she starts school...



I was further along yesterday morning than I am now, however. You may remember that one of my gripes with this pattern is that it doesn't tell you how many stitches you should have at critical junctures. I had finished the sleeves as the pattern called for, but my skinny-minny daughter could hardly get her wrists through the cuffs! So, I went about a third of the way up the sleeve, ran a pink yarn through the stitches, and ripped them out to that point. I started re-knitting the right sleeve last night and am almost finished. The pattern calls to switch from the size 8 the body/sleeves are knit with to a size 4 for the cuffs. I now have 6 more stitches on the sleeve than I did before and I am just going to continue with the size 8s to to the ribbing on the cuff.

And as for my more horticultural works-in-progress, see the big tomatoes behind Willow? Those are 'Lemon Boy' tomatoes - to be yellow when ripe.

Here is the plant (rescued from the compost heap) that yesterday's cherry tomatoes came from. As you can see, there looks like we will have many more in coming days :)



Yeah... I know I need to weed the bottom of that pot.

Must.suppress.tomato.envy! Hee hee!

And for the record, I don't think that sweater looks anything like nasty old Mr. R's sweater! It's much nicer!

Sorry! I'll stop posting tomatoes pics ;)

Actually, this isn't the Mr. R sweater - that is the next one on the needles for Willow. It will be V-necked and blue, however.

Quite often I don't change the size of the needle when doing cuffs - I just do a k2,p2 rib instead.
