I HAVE been doing some actual knitting when not floating around the Alaskan seas. I've started a sweater for the little man and so far it is fairly mindless knitting. It is rows and rows and rows of 2x2 rib until I get to the interesting part around the chest and sleeves. But that's just what I have been needing these days. So except for the part where I actually turned around and knit back on a row rather than completing it and created a big hole, things have been going well. I am excited to get to the chest though where I will be making an intarsia crocodile (or at least I hope I will!) I'll keep you posted.
