Where did restful weekends go?

Weekends seem to be such a busy time lately.  I keep waiting for peaceful quiet days of knitting.  Those long far too quiet Friday nights are far, far in my past.

I babysat my other set of grandkiddies this weekend.  What a treat for me!  There was time to knit, but only on small things, and on things I knit ovewr and over.

Most of my time was spent on my grandsons sweater.  Its for Issac, my oldest.  I started it before and wasn't happy with it, so I pulled it all out and I started it again.  And again.  And again.  Fourth times the charm, right?

I think I am finally on the right path.

 Each time, I got this far previously, it started feeling wrong.  This time, it feels right, I think.  I hope. 

Cardigan.  Raglan sleeves. Mostly plain stockinette.  Sounds about right for an 8 year old boy who is also somehow on the cusp of manhood. 

Kid knitting.  The stuff of life.
