My Something green is going much more quickly than the last time I attempted it.
Just 2 more inches to go on the body and then I get to start the sleeves! I used my lifted increase and I’m very pleased – you can see the increase in the purl sections, but it isn’t anywhere near as obvious as doing a m1 increase was. The sweater is fitting very well – it’s on track to have about a 32″ bust including the button bands, and that’s just perfect for me!
I’m wondering if I should add some length to the sweater. I tend to think no, since the swingy style would be unflattering if too long. I probably think that because of my green gable, which I’m wearing today, and which isn’t the longest thing ever. I love it anyway, fortunately I like the look of a long tank under a sweater!
I’m feeling a bit better today, thank goodness. The swelling is going down, and I’ve been able to switch to ibuprofen instead of the vicodin the dentist gave me. I hate the way that pain medicine makes me feel, and I wasn’t able to work this weekend – I only managed one mass yesterday, and that was really pushing things. I do feel able to teach today, so it seems I am getting better.
Sarah Jane is sitting in my lap, making typing difficult. I swear, I’ve never had a cat that needed to be so close to you all the time. It’s adorable, of course, although I don’t think the other cats see it that way.
Thanks to everyone who added me as a friend on goodreads, as well as to those who agree with my introverted ways – I’ll respond individually, but isn’t it neat to see how many of us there are?

I can’t wait to see this finished – I keep looking at this pattern…. and then casting on for something.
Glad you’re feeling better. Great sweater and great color…can’t wait to see it all finished!
I saw your post and thought of this picture on cuteoverload.com
You’re so fast! Can’t wait to see the finished product. I’mg lad that you are feeling better, and that the swelling is going down. I hear you on being introverted- I’m really good at faking extroversion, but in truth I find being around people kind of exhausting. Let’s hear it for bookworm pride!
I love the green. This is bound to be beautiful:)
It’s looking great, and the color will undoubtedly be perfect on you. I’m glad you’re feeling better. I hate taking Vicodin. It makes me loopy and sick to my stomach.
Hello knitting friend,
I am living in Holland and I started to be a knittingblog reader a few weeks ago. Every day I am looking at your blog. I like your knittings and the way you write about it. This is the first time for me to give a comment. Hopefully you will knit and write very many years!
I found your link on Ravelry, and I want to tell you that your “Something Green” is a thing of beauty! You are also a kind of knitting hero to me because I am extremely frustrated by by own rowing-out issues. . . . Your attitude really helps! I’ve taught myself to switch to continental-style, and I’ve even knitted backwards. I guess my flat-knitting, stockinette results might just be uniquely “me”.
I added your blog to my faves & I’ll continue to check in – Keep up the beautiful work!
