Creeping along

So, that sweater I started with the weird loose set of stitches? I worked and worked it but - I wasn't able to fix it. So, after an evening of tv watching and unwinding, washing and hanging the hank - I started again with the world's largest ball of yarn. 

This time - a Benedetta. Hopefully, since it isn't a 360 degree kind of sweater, it will go faster. Sigh.

Also, our new bundle of sunshine, Nico, decided to eat the heel out of Youngest Child's favorite socks. Sigh.

Even the Fledermaus Shawl is creeping along right now -  it's my carry-along project for soccer games, band concerts and church services - but it's all garter stitch. Sigh.

On the up side - I finally finished up my quilt blocks from the 2012 Craftsy Block of the Month class.

Cleopatra's Puzzle Block

Chain Block

Friendship Circle Block

Circle of Geese

At this rate, I'll be finishing up the whole quilt by 2015! And I'll be able to cuddle up with my newly-completed Benedetta. Sigh. I'm really hoping June will end on a better note . . .
