The Pea Pod Baby set and I are at odds right now. I thought that I was done. The only task I had left was to attach the sleeves to the body. As Brian and I watched "Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader?" I realized I must not be, because simple math had evaded me. The sleeves were about 1/3 smaller than the sleeve hole opening on the body. I mean really, the body of the sweater looks like it will fit an 18 month old, and the sleeves were probably right for a 6 month old. I'm such a doofus. So, I have ripped the sleeves apart and I am now attempting to pick up my stitches off of the body and knit the sleeves from there. The trick is going to be making them proportional. Seeing as how I don't have a baby to measure, this will really just be winging it.
I've also been thinking lately about Christmas knitting. I don't know how much I'll commit to this year - but I'm sure I'll squeak out a few projects. I may even teach myself to crochet (I even surprised myself with that statement). Does anyone have any special Christmas requests - if you do, please state the project and color preferences. This Santa doesn't have any helpers, so she has to get to work early.
