despite the dark clouds hanging over me, i am making some knitting progress. i'm about 8" into the back of sweet. on size 5 needles (and black yarn), it is slow going, but so far, so good. i'm almost 3" into the body portion of the top-down raglan. i'm actually glad i started that one over, since it was looking like it would end up a little snug, and i wanted it more oversized. on the other end of the spectrum, sweet looks like it will be semi-fitted, but since it is much thinner yarn, it won't make me look like a tub.
