Knit Bug

Last night I was bit by the knitting bug.

As I sat in bed watching the olympics a small bag with an almost finished sweater sat looking at me from the bedside table.

Back in February I started a sweater for Ben. I have the body done and had started on one of the sleeves. I decided I had better get it out and try and finish. I was able to complete the first sleeve in about a hour and am going to work on the second sleeve as soon as I'm done with this post.

It doesn't take very long when all you are working with is 40 stitches and have to knit 5 1/2 inches before the sleeve is complete.

That's the joy of knitting baby clothes. You can wrap a project up pretty quick if you just do it and don't leave it sitting in a bag for 6 months.
