It’s blocking right now, and then I have a few ends to weave in, but basically it’s done! I promise I will write about something else tomorrow 🙂
and knitting and knitting and knitting… I was very much hoping to be done with this today, and was on track to finish, but then some events happened and I’m here. Halfway through the ribbing. So. 8 more rows of ribbing, and the bind off. Here’s hoping for no more distractions tomorrow!
Arachne update! Tomorrow night I’m going to try it on and see where I’m at. I think I need to do an inch or two more of stockinette, then on to the ribbing! It’s really tempting to just go at it all weekend, but other activities may intervene. Onward!

Both sleeves are done! Now it’s on to finish the body.
We got some flowers! We have quite a few marigold buds ready to go, but here are the first two to pop! Also, our lilacs have started blooming!
