Getting there

I stayed away for the weekend, went to Penn State and stayed in a house in the middle of nowhere. It was good, cold, and I got a lot of knitting done. This is my Skinny Empire sweater that I have been working hard on, trying to make and keep it perfect. Though god knows I am not a perfect knitter but I want it nice enough to where I can actually wear it in public!
My kitty, Tipps, decided he wanted to check out my sweater. He's a ham!!!

I got a lot further on it than I thought I would...with the other one I made, the boxy sweater, it was knit in pieces and then had to be seamed would think it would go fast? No. It was a nightmare!! Easy but I hate sewing the shoulder seams together...and after I had already given it away, I was told of an easier much better tecnique...sheesh!
Either way this is the fruit of my labourous weekend in the mountains....other than that all I got to do was read my book, relax with Brad and the dog...and do nothing.
