Things that go bump in the night

Remember this? The bump sweater! Well I got a case of finishitis and drug it out to finish it up. Its always a good thing to finish up a project before the expectant mother delivers the baby. This is for my daughter in law. Two things sort of hit me while making the first half of the sweater. One DIL is very tiny and am not sure even making the small version is small enough for her. Second: Making short rows make me nervous. But am back on track and almost have the front finished and will cast on for sleeves by tonight I hope.
I intend to drag out every thing that is setting on needles and line them up around my chair where most knitting is accomplished. I think the chances of me either tripping over them or frogging them will clear up this issue. I am focused on completion now.
The few small items that I have planned for Christmas will also find themselves in the line up for completion.
The new rule here!!! Keep those needles moving.

You will now be my motivation! I have a sweater on my needles that got shoved to the back. I will be pulling that out this afternoon! I remember your bump sweater...can't wait to see your progress on Wednesday.

I still say that sweater is amazing. Love the design and concept. Can't wait to see the finished product.
