still hoping it works out

So, yes. I do work on multiple projects at once! (the socks, the friend sweater, the blanket, and some others that are still hanging around...) I've decided to do one of the sleeves first, then I'm going to cut the steek. I was going to cut the steek first, but I wanted to see if the weight of the sleeve would have an effect on how the yoke lies.

I've also ordered some more cables and connectors (and possibly some yarn...) from Knit Picks for my interchangeable needles - I want to be able to pick up all around the front, the bottom and the neckline at once to see how the edging will work out.

I know it looks funny here, but I have high hopes for this sweater...

on another note - I am spending the day working at home in between basketball games. My son's school basketball team is playing in the Area Tournament today, and it's at a nearby school, so between shuttling kids from our school to that one, and coming home between games, I'm getting a bit of work done. I have a very understanding boss, obviously! If they finish 1st or 2nd in their pool today, they have the playoff round on Friday. Luckily, I always work at home Fridays, so that's a little easier. I've sent the kids off with these:
You can tell we're a basketball family, when the only icing colours I have stocked in the house are orange and black. I'm hoping it's motivation for a win! Or at least a sugar rush for later in the day...

I thought they were eggs at first and couldn't figure out how you got them all to be pretty much the same shape.

Mom of the year award for you. Good idea about seeing how the sleeve weight affects the sweater yoke. Brilliant.
