After frogging the progress I had made on the neckline and yoke of the Twinkle, Vintage Baby Cardigan , I've now completed the body and one sleeve.
It has traveled everywhere with me. After school pick up, soccer practice, dental appointments. I'm not afraid to KIP (knit-in-public).
Last night, I started the second sleeve. Somewhere I either missed or the directions missed casting on additional stitches before placing the sleeves on marker when I began working the body. My stitch count was off anyways with the sleeves. That remains a mystery as well. But I easily remedied that with some kfbs at the beginning and end of the very first knit row of the sleeves and a couple cast ons - this is after I joined for in the round. I think they are well hidden in the armpit and will be completely hidden when I stitch the gap closed.
As for reading, after finishing The Hunger Games, I searched through my book stash for anything that's been waiting for more than a year - or 3- to be read. I settled on Girl with a Pearl Earring. It is one of the many stacks of books I've purchased at our local library's annual used book sale that I haven't read yet. It was quick...and good! I finished it in under a week, then couldn't decide what I wanted to read next. I'm not ready to pick up the second Hunger Games book. Yesterday, I decided to start Dracula, the Undead written by Dacre Stolker. I started it, hoping it will be good. There was a bit in the first couple chapters that didn't impress me - seemed a bit gratuitous. But I have high hopes for the rest!
