Hallett's Ledge

Here's the body of my restful sweater I've been working on when I can't work on the stranded S4$. I really like it, but it seems small even though I got gauge spot on. Maybe blocking will do the trick, I think it will to go by the pictures on Ravelry.

At practice, working on the back of the S4M and indulging in my new lame pleasure. KnitPicks podcasts. If you haven't listened to them imagine Anna Gastyre and Molly Shannon doing "Delicious Dish" on SNL (Betty White episode, Alec Baldwin episode), only about knitting. I'm a little worried that if my spouse finds I've been listening to these, he'll mock me mercilessly.

I want to help you with your dental hygiene

Ah, kitties. They do find floss fascinating.
Still plodding away on the S4$, I'll take it's picture at practice tomorrow. I've finished the body of Hallett's ledge which I love but am unsure if it will be big enough until its done and blocked. Is it me, or does that sort of thing account for 70% of UFOs in knitting baskets around the world?

How dull

It's Hallett's Ledge. I wasn't happy with the way the decreases were working so I'm on my third rip out to get it how I want it. Great if you're watching a movie and can't work on the sweaterformoney, but not super photogenic. Instead of doing a seam of decreases and increases up the side seam that disrupts the rib pattern, I'm bringing the three purl ribs down to two starting by the side seams and working out.
I saw some really nice hand dyed roving and I think I need to start spinning again.

Pieces parts

More than half done with the front of the sweaterformoney ... It's pretty, but it's sort of taking over my knitting life.
