Despite the fact that I spent way too much time last night troubleshooting why the heck my home phone is not working* and not enough time knitting, I’ve made some progress on the back of the tennis sweater. See?
And a close-up:
This is a fun, easy knit, and I am a fan of the Cotton Cashmere, so we are amused. It’s quite a short sweater, so I added an inch to the length of the body before starting the armhole decreases.
The only pattern anomaly that I see so far is that there are places where you are not told to swtich back to the main color after knitting with the contrast color, but it’s pretty easy to figure out that you are supposed to. So it’s no big whoop.
Reminder: I Hate the Time Change
And from reading knitting blogs I have ascertained that I am not the only one. My usual Sunday night insomnia coupled with trying to fall asleep an hour earlier resulted in a grand total of under two hours of sleep last night. Yawn along with me, if you like.
But I did manage to change all my clocks, including the one in my car (which always requires a look in the owner’s manual to figure out exactly how), so hopefully it’s downhill from here.
Lucy is not amused that I kept her up most of the night. This is what she looks like right now.
*So why the heck is my home phone not working? Beats me. The phone company is unable to ascertain whether it’s an inside or outside problem, so I had to schedule a service call (earliest one being Thursday) and will have to be at home between 8am and 6pm for said call. Knitting time!
I very rarely use my home phone (yay cellphone!) so who knows how long it’s been out of order? The last entry on my Caller ID is March 17!

I plan to wear Deli tomorrow. Wheee! But not with the dress I pictured earlier in the blog — that seems a little too summery for early April. I’ve got a long navy silk dress Deli will look quite nice. I’ve also got . . . um . . . pink lizard Tony Lamas.
But the mauve Justins might match Deli better.
Thanks for all the nice comments about Deli, y’all!
