Liza describes how I'm feeling better than I could. This is what I'm doing about it.
For those interested in knitting information, this is a vest that I'm designing as I go along. A first. Because I don't like stitching seams together, I decided to do the back and the fronts all together, which I can do thanks to the expandable needles I received as a gift from Pippy Bluestocking, my thoughtful D-I-L. The first advantage of designing: I can make the pockets as deep as I want! Pockets in bought sweaters, if they exist at all, are always too shallow.
