On and Off the Needles

Its been one of those weeks--two weeks with too many things going on but nothing blog worthy.  Always good to have socks for a road trip, the dark socks are pair perfect yarn so they should match, the pastel pair was just luck that the stripes are matching. And I finished my sweater it has garter rows in the sides and faux sleeve seam and short rows a couple inches before the garter row hem so it is slightly curved in the front and back.  It has saddle shoulders and short rows to shape the back.  The pattern is Antler and is top down in the round---my kind of sweater, if I could only figure out how to knit the sleeves two at a time.  I knit mine all one color.  Linking to Judy's OTN  --Ann--

Both of your pairs of socks look great. Your sweater looks very nice on you. Congrats for a pretty finish. I know what you mean about not having any blog worthy news for a while but being very busy. I'm still trying to finish the 2nd sock of my red pair which was started at the end of Jan. Too many other things getting in the way.

Have a great weekend. You will find me in the garden planting veggies.
