Just a babe in sweaterland

 I've exchanged the firearms for knitting needles today, and turned my attention back to the Eileen cardigan.
I'm about half way done the first sleeve. When I was planning my vacation, I was really optimistic about finishing the cardigan by the end of it - but now I'm not so sure... I've got general errands to run tomorrow (and possibly some dyeing), Friday, I have a play date with my best friend. Saturday, Mom and I are off to Woodstock, and well - by Sunday, I'll need a nap. Anyway, I'm not putting any pressure on myself to finish this. I'm just going to enjoy the knitting.

I should've have had this sleeve a little further along, as I'd planned to start it on Monday, not Tuesday night. I packed up the yarn and pattern before heading out with Dave to his family's Thanksgiving gathering, but when I got there I realized I'd forgotten to pack the needle!

Fortunately I'd also packed some back-up knitting.
Readers might recognize this as the cardigan I cast on waaaaaaaaaaaaaay back in March.  I put it down and just never picked it back up. Monday, I managed to add a few more inches to it, but cables and a patterned wrong side make for very slow growth. I'll give it some proper loving once Eileen is done.

Meanwhile, Tux has promised to keep it warm for me.
Such a helpful kitty.

The pattern on Eileen reminds me of the Nutkin sock pattern. Very pretty.

Are you a vendor at Woodstock? I might be heading out that way depending on weather :)
