Here is an in progress shot of the baby sweater. And ewww the ironing board looks horrible! Just focus on the sweater. That's what I'm going to do. I have about 4-5 more inches to go and then I'll be done! There is little finishing to do because I knit the sleeves in the round. I am going to use eyelet hooks instead of buttons and I think I will knit a little flower to attach to add a little color. I really like CotLin yarn for this project.

Surprised at how fast this is knitting up? Well, our evening ritual has changed once again! I have decided to let Joy #2 enroll back into public school. Many factors led to this decision and it isn't a bad one it is just different. I loved our virtual school we were a part of and that is probably why I'm a little sad he's back in public school. It was such a good community and they did such cool stuff! But now he is back to doing "school" during the day and our evenings will no longer be spent working on math & pouring over his history book. I asked him if we could still read his history book together in the evenings because I was enjoying it so much. He gave me a "Are you crazy woman?" look. On the one hand it is nice not to have to do schoolwork in the evenings but on the other hand I will miss it.

Hope the public school adjustment goes well...maybe Joy#2 could knit with you in the evenings Hey...he could knit his own mitts :-)
