home stretch
I finished both sleeves of the baby gansey. This has been the hardest baby sweater I think I've ever done... except maybe the sweater I knit for mzkero's son. Colorwork stranded across the purl side. I almost went insane. There are a couple more baby sweaters I want to make when I'm done with this one, but good grief, this one has been nothing but trouble.

I've knitted the body twice. I've knitted one sleeve twice. I give up on how many times I restarted the sewn bind-off on the cuffs tonight -- if it didn't look so amazing, I'd just bind off in pattern and call it a day. But it does, and I feel clever when I get it right, and so I carry on.

Just the neckline to do now, and I can call it done. Hopefully I can at least get the stitches picked up and a few rounds done tomorrow. I want to get the sweater done in time to block it and finish the bunny before I go home. The blanket needs blocking too, but I don't need to give that to her at the shower. If I get to, it's a bonus.

Bed now. I have to finish a movement order tomorrow, and there's still a lot to do.

And I still need a knitting icon.
