(Warning! This is a Rocky Heavy Post)
Finally... the front and back are finished.... only sleeves left to do!

(This was on the floor for about two seconds while I ran upstairs to get the camera, came down.. Rocky made himself comfortable on it)
It's a little hard to see the details, but this is Leo , a ribbed sweater from Knitty I'm knitting for my boyfriend. It was supposed to be for his birthday last July... then Christmas... now Valentine's day.
Dave was sick this weekend, so while he was lying around on my couch I got the opportunity to really work on it. We watched a lot of the History Channel (I know more about the Luftwaffe than I ever wanted to) and I got a lot done (the front was about half done when I picked it up Saturday afternoon) After Dave went home I popped Pride and Prejudice in the DVD player and had a little knit-a-thon to finish it up.
All I have left are the sleeves!!!!! (Technical note: Knit in Debbie Bliss Alapca Silk, Dark Brown)

And, as you can see from the picture above, Rocky is a bit of a problem cat...

I'm not sure if he thinks unwinding my wool is helpful.... but it certainly looks like he had a lot of fun.... tired him out. Dave and I heard him doing this.. I thought he was upstairs playing with one of his mice in my curtains (one of his favourite games) How wrong I was.

And, Rocky had a little sleep over a couple of weekends ago

LOL, they looked stunned in the picture at the sleepover party. The sweater's coming along well. :-)

Ha ha ha! I guess I should be happy that Duncan doesn't know how to play. :)
