that's the red sweater i cast on shortly before leaving for minnesota. i made decent progress despite the heat wave. i forgot about air conditioning. plus, i had help.
while waiting to watch wheel of fortune with grandpa, jg decided to help me knit. i held his hands for the first stitch and then he proceeded like a regular, albeit very slowly.
intense toe curling concentration
this is actually the second time jg has helped me knit. the first time, months ago, it took him nearly an hour to knit three stitches. steep learning curve. this time it only took him minutes to knit twelve.
mom watches on
jg's mom was impressed by jg's effort but concerned, even more so than i was. why? because she is the intended recipient. yes, someone who actually wants to wear my sweater. yay!
you won't undo my stitches, will you?
