But shots of what, you ask? Well, I've knit a sleeve and a half on my So Faded sweater. Well, okay... honestly, I have a sleeve and a quarter. Maybe closer to an eighth. The point is, I've started the second sleeve. I'm making progress.
The second sleeve is knitting up a little slower than the first. I decided to use the Arleta colorway for the sleeves instead of fading them. Although my Arleta skeins are the same dye lot and were ordered at the same time, they are very different from each other.

Woot! Woot! We scored again!!
Sorry. I'm a little excited. And a lot distracted.
Anyway.... The first sleeve was a big old beautiful mess of fluctuating color and the second sleeve was coming out all stripey. Luckily I had a partial skein left over so I'm alternating the rows. No more stripey affect. Knitting time wise, it's no different but untangling the twisted yarn time wise....
But it's fine if the sweater is taking me longer than planned. You might be sick of looking at it but I'm Loving knitting with the Hawthorne yarns and I'm quite pleased with the way the sweater is turning out. And it's June. I won't be wearing it anytime soon!
And, after a two month break in my knit-a-hat-a-week plan, I've finally cast on another hat. This hat will be number 19 out of 52. Luckily I was way ahead of the game and now I'm only four hats behind schedule. I can come back from that. I'm not totally defeated yet.
And now, back to the Caps game....
