Here is what the arms look like:
And what the body looks like, at the moment.
Then I stalled, because the next step takes a small amount of brain power. Really, not much, but enough. And I just wasn't in the mood. On Saturday I was running out to the library. I didn't want to take the sweater--too much brain power. I had no socks on the needles (weird, I know) and I have nothing else planned and ready to go.
So, I grabbed a skein of Encore took a peek at the Mason Dixon book, grabbed the needles and headed out. What I failed to notice was that the Moderne Blanket calls for DK weight yarn, and Encore is worsted. So my blanket will be unique. I've gone through one skein already, and I'm halfway through a second. I bought a total of 12 skeins for this blanket.
So brainless I was able to cook dinner, read a book and knit this blanket at the same time on Saturday night.
