On the knitting front, I have only 5 inches left on the sleeve and only 83 stitches at this point, so I plan to show you the finished sleeve and start of sleeve number two next week. But I don't want to disappoint so, here is a sock in Cascade Fixation, and I got sick of the purple so added some stripes myself. I wish the bulls-eye toe was a little smaller, but oh well. The second sock is in the beginning stages (turning the heel now.)

The next step was to sew with a sewing machine (OMG!) the steeks, this really wasn't a problem, until my bobbin ran out of thread. Then it took a half hour to find the instructions on how to fill the bobbin up again! Good Grief!
Ok, so now I have a sewn steek, now is the time to cut the sweater. I decided to leave all the other steeks sewn and just cut one at a time. This leaves less chance of unraveling, although I am using Jamieson's 2 ply shetland yarn, which does have a lot of "grab" to it. The yarn just seems to want to stick together, but I was not about to try cutting without the sewing first! It took me at least an hour to find a size 3.0 mm needle! Tthen I could only fine one, darn it, I like to use two and make up my sleeves just like socks on two circulars, I haven't quite figured out what to do when I don't have enough stitches to go around, but here is the start of a sleeve! Yeah! Almost done with one!

The colors are the actual colors called for, I don't normally stray when it comes to fair isle, I don't think I have much color sense, but I am working on it! Guess I will leave it at that for the moment since I have no idea what I am doing on this post! Take care, every body!
