I baked two pies last Friday. One apple, one peach. We ate and ate pie and ice cream all weekend, but we couldn't eat it all. I shared with my neighbors and the teacher I work with, and finally there was only one piece left.
I let The Professor have it.



Tuesday nights I usually go to the local coffee shop Palmero for a knitting group. We enjoy looking at each other's projects and noting the progress from week to week.
I spent my evening counting stitches so I could increase correctly for cables on the back of the aran sweater.




A very cool and complicated cast on.




An almost finished shawl, warm and cozy.




And here it is: the finished front of the aran sweater!

What pink sweater are you wearing in the picture? It is pretty.

I'm staying home from school today because I feel pretty yucky. :o( I will spend the day studying, though, to make up for not being in class.

I'm torn between eyeing the pie and exclaiming over your Aran sweater. Boy, that is beautiful!I wish I lived nearer to you - I knit scarves - endless scarves in easy stitches. I really should learn how to make other things as well. The knitting abbreviations do me in.

I've posted lots of links to Asperger's Syndrome sites on my blog this morning. Hope this helps. If you need more assistance, please let me know.

Oh my goodness is that ever beautiful. I don't know if I could ever get to that point in my knitting. I am inspired!
