I think I can, I think I can, etc.

So, I’m chugging away on the sleeves.  I’m pretty much done with one sleeve.  I did enough of the feather and fan pattern, and was trying to decide how to end it off.  My options were, ribbing so as to mimic the bottom part, seed stitch to mimic the beginning of the sleeves, or something else that would allow the wavy part to stay.  After much careful consideration, I went with the ribbing.  Mostly because I wanted to, and it’s my sweater.  Although there was some arguing between hubby and I about whether or not it was a sweater.

Me – It’s a sweater.  It’s made of yarn, and it’s worn on the upper part of the body.  It’s not a hat, or a scarf, or a vest.  It’s a sweater.

Hubby – Well, you aren’t gong to wear anything under it, are you?  Most sweaters are meant to be worn over things, like turtlenecks or t-shirts or something.  It’s really more of a top.

Me –  Sigh.

Whatever it is, I didn’t work on it at all last night.  I meant to, I wanted to, but I didn’t.  Wanna guess why?

I went out for my walk, now up to around 4 miles, I think, and got back around 8 pm.  Then had to get the boys in bed.  Then had some supper, and got my shower.  Around 10 or so, I finally sat down to relax and pick up the SWEATER.  Hubby announces that he’d going to be going to bed pretty soon, as soon as he finishes this game of solitaire he’s playing because he wants to get up early to go on a long run.

Ok, I can understand that.  He likes to do his runs in the morning, and he has to get up early, meaning that he also needs to go to sleep earlier.  As I wasn’t even beginning to get tired yet, I went into the computer room to tool around ravelry for a while, looking up things to do with that Noro Kurchan or whatever that angora/wool stuff is I got in Denver.  I found a lot of cool ideas, and queues them up.  I finally started to get to the point where I thought I might be able to sleep, and it was around 12:30.  I go in the bedroom, and he’s still up.  On the computer.  Playing solitaire.  STILL!

He’s all like, “Where’d you go?”

“I went into the other room because you said you needed to go to sleep.”

It just went downwards from there.  Suffice it to say, I’m going to be working on the other sleeve in a minute.  As soon as I get done banging my head against the wall.
