Keeping Busy

It’s been a while since my last post. I was called to jury duty and ended up sitting on five-day trial about sexual assault on a child by a person of trust. My name was pulled out of the hat as the alternate so I didn’t get to deliberate in the end. It was heart wrenching and the jury couldn’t come to a unanimous decision so a mistrial was declared. Iin type of case, everyone loses. But I was thoroughly impressed with how all of my fellow jury members took their jobs so seriously. We do have a very good legal system.

Then my sister came for a visit and my twins came home from their first year at college. I’ve spent a lot of quality time with my family, but much less time knitting. However, I did manage to work my way down the first sleeve.

Then I started the second. Here’s what it looked like after I picked up all the stitches around the armhole.

The markers were placed to ensure I picked up the right number of stitches evenly distributed.

If I can turn my focus back onto my knitting, I should have this done in no time.

  1. I was worried…..but jury duty is not something easily dismissed. Sounds like a distressing case. Hope the meditative quality of knitting helps to ease the upsetting aspects of listening to the details. Looking forward to the finished sweater and pattern

  2. I love the stitch pattern on your sweater & look forward to seeing how you finish it.

    I’m now working my way thru my first sweater from the Handy Book of TopDown Sweaters & loving the entire process from picking the yarn & knitting the swatch to determining just how I want this sweater to look & fit. I’m knitting a raglan sleeved v-neck pullover & an almost done with the body. This process is new to me because I’ve always been a strict pattern follower.

  3. From barb k Rochester ny nice job on the sweater. I am making a sweater in cotton from vogue knitting 1986. It has been slow because our winter was hard and spring was cold so I am behind on yard work.
