A little plyin' in February!

Plying tends to wait in my studio til every stinking bobbin I have is full of singles! Not that I do not LIKE plying, but I guess, singles is where it is here.... tee hee! This bobbin has plyed on it: 2 ply from our Lincoln cross sheep on left; middle is left over Lincoln x plyed with cute checkered fabric with a random wrap thread; and the right side is two ply Jacob & Cotswold wool- hand dyed by la sheep! ;0)
My knitting involves a sweater I am still mad at! Makes lots of sense right? I had it all done last summer, hubby's first ever sweater from our own sheep, my handspun, etc etc AND in time for winter? Wowser! Well, he tried it on, and the arms were short among other issues- and that sweet wonderful man was going to wear it just to make me happy? I tossed that damn sweater in the corner with my other UFO's and I did not pick it up again til a few weeks ago. STILL mad at it but sad down one grumpy day and frogged the entire thing, and started over.
And that is not the end of this sweater saga, I decided last night, six inches into the back section of the sweater that the ribbing is too tight, need to size up a needle. GRRRRRR. SO tonight I frog, and start over again. Now I am determined to get this right- and DONE!!!! SOOOON! Wish me luck and hope all is well with everyone- from your crabby pants knitter friend!
