I am working on one sleeve for my February Lady Sweater. I have been trying this on and I gotta tell you I really love how this is coming out. I made it long enough for the body, here's hoping I make the sleeves long enough. I am thinking 3/4 sleeves. We'll see.
Well summer is almost coming to a close and that means The Great New York State Fair. I keep thinking maybe this is the year that I enter something like handspun. But I never get around to doing it. I am going to the Fair this year. We have tickets to see:
I am not a big Journey fan, so we may stay and listen for a little bit then leave to beat the crowd. I am totally looking forward to seeing Cheap Trick! I love the bass player! Heart will be good too. But Journey.... they just remind me of bad High School experiences....
Joan Jett is playing a free concert at the Fair on the same day. We are going to try and make it to that show for sure.
I am hoping to have my August socks done by the weekend. I want to have something to blog about next week!

LOVE the sweater!!! I have seen several completed and this pattern just looks fantastic. I like the idea of longer sleeves, too. Have a great time at the fair!

Your sweater is perfect for a one-armed paper hanger! Joan Jett? Drat. The Allentown Fair is next week, wonder who'll be there. Hmmmm.

Dan's going to see Boston tomorrow. I wouldn't mind going...my kids have quite the life. They were tram attendants today with their FFA group.
I love the sweater. As soon as the carder shows up (Yes it ships tomorrow!!)I'll be carding up a storm.
Enjoy..er well by now it's over...hope you had fun.

I noticed in the background how nicely your yarn stash is organized. Can I say drool? All of mine are in huge see-through Rubbermaid totes. Yours looks much prettier.
