On the Needles Friday, March 21

March 21 – it’s my sister’s birthday!  I need to get back to knitting on her top this weekend.  She’s busy traveling back from a spring break vacation with her family and my parents – they left the snow and cold and hit some warmer weather at the beach in Alabama.  Here – well it got to mid 40s so it was a veritable heat wave and while the sun was shining wasn’t bad at all but about 3:00 it turned cloudy and gray and damp again.

In the meantime I’ve been knitting on my sweater.  Here’s the back so far – the two longer lace panels have just ended with their little flower like design at the top and just the middle one will continue to grow a bit taller.  I need to do some figuring tho so I make sure I have room to end it before the neck edge bind off starts so need to see how many rows before than I need to start it.
