Making Progress on the Sweater....Scratch That Idea

When I had CO for my sweater, I had decided to knit the sweater in the smaller size, because I had read on Raverly that the sweater had knitted up loose fitting and on the big side. 

I was coming into the home-stretch of the sweater.  I just needed to finish the length on the back and the sleeves.  Well, so much for progress.  

I put all of the sts on waste yarn and tired it on.  Well, even after I put on a button band...I know that the sweater won't fit.  It just will not make it across the top shelf.  Off to the frog pond I go.  It's too sad to take photos.

Making Progress on the Sweater

I'm making progress on the sweater.  I've knitted to the point where I've divided for the sleeves.

It also helped that it was a good movie weekend.  We watched Mail Order Bride on the Hallmark Movie Channel and On The Waterfront on Video on Demand.  We also rented Wild Stallion from Red Box.  When I knitting stockinette, good movies and good TV are a must.

YOU Got to hear her sing!!
