Got some good news, bad news on the green raglan sweater front. Good news? The leaf edging is almost done. I think two more repeats will do it. And since I provisionally cast on, I'm going to end on the last wrong-side row and just knit it together. Seamless edging!
The bad news? The edging will be the right length because I'm going to rip back about 12" in length and 4-5" in width. Thing 1 told me it was too wide yesterday. Oh well. It's fairly quick knitting and I had been wondering if I'd have enough yarn for sleeves. I've also excavated the Pearl Buck Swing Jacket and packed it in a carry bag.
I should have quite a bit of knitting time this weekend, because I'm going camping with Things 2-4. Thing 1 is opting out because her friends aren't going (she did offer to go, saying, "I'll go, I'll just be miserable," which cracked me up). I'm thinking that she and her father are going to have a ball together. Shopping? Eating out? They'll probably do some of each. And no one to hire to take care of the animals. Bonus.
Things 2 & 3 are made for camping. Even with badly-timed colds, they're raring to go. We're traveling a little lighter than before, though. See what's missing?
I'm actually a bit sad, because that tiny pearls smile is one of my favorite childhood things. Onward to growth, though!
