Progress on the Stockholm Sweater
I've been making headway on the Stockholm Sweater. The body is finished, and the short row shaping on the first sleeve is completed. Now I can zoom through stockinette down to the wrist with some decreases. The fabric is really light, because of the fingering weight yarn. I am hoping to have it finished in a few weeks.
Lula was in the dog house yesterday. I'm not sure why, but she made a couple of small wet spots on my bed. It was covered with a dog sheet, because she likes to lounge, Still...I can't have that happening. Maybe because it's Springtime. I seem to remember this same situation with another on of my dogs at this time of year. I got out Carlie's old crate and set it up in the bedroom. Instead of driving to knitting, I stayed home and washed the duvet cover and my down comforter. It dried well in the afternoon sun. Oh well. Pets can cause us some extra work at times. I'm glad that I saved this kennel. She really seems to like it.
The sun has been shining, and it does a fantastic job of line drying the clothes. I love how clean and fresh the nightgowns and bedding smell. It really saves on energy costs, too. I placed the pineapple in the windowsill for a couple of days. I had some earlier, and it was fantastic! The flavor was so sweet and tangy. What a treat! I am looking forward to all of the fresh summer fruits that we have in store. They are so delicious. Are you enjoying this weather?
