WIP-Aran Rose sweater
Like I've said a hundred times the last 2 days, this is from the Spring Interweave Knits. They didn't have the pretty pink yarn I wanted at Michael's, although they did have the Patons the pattern calls for, so I got New Denim (I almost got grey, I love grey sweaters!). Anyways, I had a really bad day yesterday while I was out, had a flat tire, took about 2 hours or more to get it off and the spare on. Got home, realized then size 7 needles are blue! Talk about fun knitting Anyways, I did 3 or 4 rows, realized I'd dropped 2 stitches somewhere, couldn't figure out where, so I frogged it. Now, I have 5 rows done, which is the Cuff pattern. On the 4th row is a 1/1 PLC...didn't really like how it looked, and it was a PITA to do, so I'm not doing it anymore, but I'll leave the one on there. My back and neck is all kinked up now, I really wanna knit but I'm afraid to...may wait until tomorrow, and get hubby to massage me tonight! Anyways, thanks for reading my novel!

Yes it's for me, unless the wool is too scratchy for my liking...I didn't realize it would feel so rough! I have eczema so my skin is sensitive.
