Happy April to all! I hope your weather is looking a bit more spring-like than here. Forecast for this week:
Monday--Chance of Snow (2 to 5 inches)
Tuesday--Chance of Rain/Snow
Wednesday--Chance of Rain/Snow
Thursday--Snow Likely

Blech.

I guess the weather is trying to keep me in the mood to finish my cardigan, even though I really want to start something in cotton. After much foot-dragging, I finally wove the ends in and blocked it. Here's the body:There will be more knitting, to make the bands for the bottom, the collar, and the cuffs. I wanted to try to get a lot of the finishing done this weekend, but ended up doing a lot of running around. Plus keeping poor G company, who has been battling a nasty flu since Thursday. The saddest part is that he was supposed to fly down to NY to visit his sister and had to cancel the trip. I went to the library to pick up some books for him, but when one is spending 24 hrs a day in the house they get kinda bored. I bet he totally wishes he knew how to knit now, ha ha.

I also spent Saturday trying to find a separating zipper for the cardi, which was a total pain in the ass. The selection of 20" zippers was rather limited, I was hoping for a cream colored one but the closest thing they had was blinding white with silver zipper. I will have to see if it will work but if not that will delay this poor sweater even further.

Last weekend I visited my friend who had her baby a few weeks ago. Here he is with his hand-knitted loot:Altogether now, "Awww...."

The cardigan is looking magnificent! I hope that zipper works out and that G starts to feel better real soon.

That baby looks so adorable with all that knittin' loot.

Awww... That turtle is great!

I've found audio to be a great soother when I'm sick. That's actually how I found Cast-On a year ago, right after I started knitting. I listened to all the episodes in one day! OK, not that great a feat then with roughly 10 episodes at the time.

Awwwwwww. He and Sheldon look like old friends already!
Look at it this way, Lobstah: when it's June and I'm in Delhi boiling in 45 deg centigrade, you can tell me all about the glorious weather in Maine! (I drove up from Boston and spent memorial day weekend at a lakeside cottage there one summer, it was unbelievably gorgeous).
