I know you are waiting with bated breath...

To see how far I have gotten on hubby's sweater (that I started, yes wayyyyy back in April? May?). Well there ya go. Now I am knitting this in the round as you can see. It is loosely based on the pattern in the SNB book but the one in there is NOT knitted in the round. And I am soon coming to the part where you need to make holes for the sleeves. Now silly me has never knit a sweater in the round and I am kinda wondering what the heck ya do to do this when working with circs. Otherwise, hubby is wearing a tube top this winter instead of a sweater. Guess I better check my technique websites and get my ducks in a line.

Kids are back in school. God bless them. This will be a very busy year for us. DN2 will be having her confirmation AND DN3 will be having her 1st communion. Then graduation for DN2 from grade eight. Then there is DN1 trying to get her drivers permit. I really should have had them all ten years apart.

A list of these hilarious jokes were in my email box this morning. Here is one I just had to post:

She's sitting at the table with her gourmet
Her son is on the cover of the Wheaties box.
Her daughter is on the cover of Business Week.
Her boyfriend is on the cover of Playgirl.
And her husband is on the back of the milk carton.

Thanks Clara (sadly, Clara is blogless so I cannot link to her. But as you can see, she's a funny gal).

When you get to the arm holes, separate the front and back by placing, for example, the front on a stitch holder and then continue to work the back to desired length. You will work back and work, knit 1 row, purl 1 row.

Then complete the instructions for the front.

This is pretty close to what you need to do.

Hope I helped, or at least steered you in the right direction.

I think? I understand. Thank you so much for the info. Aren't husbands great knitting guinea pigs?
