Pictureless progress

The Heirloom Aran is coming along well. I finished the front a while ago and the first sleeve tonight. This is the first time I've done saddle shoulders, and I think they'll prove interesting when it comes time to sew the thing together. Sleeve #2 is on the needles, but my enthusiasm for it is beginning to wane.

Sleeve #2 for the Red Sweater of Doom is also on the needles. I put in a call to the pattern's publisher last week for assistance with the leaf cable chart and never heard back, so I'll have to call them again at some point.

Yarn for the sweater that was supposed to be Dad's Christmas present (and is now scheduled to be a Father's Day present) is here. Yey for acrylic that's actually soft! I'd make it out of wool if not for my mom's allergies, and cotton that size would have been rather more expensive than my bank account would like to contemplate.

Have The Prestige out of the library again, and am also in possession of the new Yarn Harlot book. Hopefully the Aran will leave me some time to read both of them!

Music: Three Dog Night - Shambala
Mood: hopeful
