Our supposed Nor'easter ended up being as much ice as snow:


It doesn't look like much, but it's heavy and icy and coming down fast. I hope we're able to get out of our driveway tomorrow.

I've hit third trimester tiredness. Over the weekend, despite getting lots of sleep, I felt like I needed a nap every 2 hours. I got a good amount of sleep last night and woke up refreshed minutes before my alarm went off, but by the time I got to work, I was ready for a nap. Hmph. I don't like going to bed early.

Trellis is taking a backseat to resurrected Re-Grow. Scott's been missing his sweater and has been reminding me more and more lately to get back to it. He's already missed 2 winter seasons with it, and he'll do his damnedest not to miss a third.

The sweater needed sleeves lengthened. Do they look like they need lengthening?

Nope, technically not. But he likes his sleeves long.

The second attempt (blogged about in November 2005) produced the right length, but didn't work overall because the original ribbing and bind-off were too tight. This time I frogged the original sleeve back a few inches, reknit it looser, and then picked up stitches to knit the extra length. It looks better than this:

but you get the idea.

Once the first sleeve was done, it was easy enough to rinse-repeat on the second. And it was done! Or so I thought. Once Scott tried it on, he wanted the bottom extended in the same way:

That's a lot more stitches. I've been chugging away. He wants to wear it Friday. We'll see.
