If only

If only I could find my tapestry needles, this sweater would be done...


and these socks would be blocking.


Last night I broke down and purchased some new needles at Joann's, and yep, you guessed it - today I found the missing ones.

And if I had remembered to take my knitting to work the other day, a day that included two hours of mind-numbing, soul-sucking meetings, I would be two hours closer to having another pair of socks done.

I hear ya! I hate being stuck in a boring event with no knitting. Or when I misplace the tool I need and have a long car ride with no way to continue my project! Maybe I need to pack extra stuff in all of our cars? Can't wait to see the finishes!

Oh, they're both going to be great!

I have no idea how many yarn needles I've purchased over the years--probably a very scary amount. They disappear, reappear, disappear--then when I am in desperation, the stores will be out of them or only have the plastic ones with the ball on the end that I don't like. I hate grafting enough as it is--making it harder is just torture!

What's the baby sweater pattern? I may need that for my coworker's upcoming, gender-unidentified baby! Love it.

The baby sweater pattern is Ribbed Jacket from "Special Knits" by Debbie Bliss.
