The first rainy day in a long while

I would really rather be on the beach. It's sunny, and warm and I could be knitting in my beach chair… I figured out how. But I am home. And it is rainy. Which is good for the drought conditions. Just makes me want to sleep.

I have completed back and sides for the oversized cardigan from Vogue Knitting Fall 06.
Two sleeves to go. This will be forever known as my beach sweater. I knit the back in the car on the way down, side one on the beach and side two in the car on the way home… we were only down for three days this time. Thank goodness for bulky yarn. This is Gedifra Trendy Tweed for 60% off at KH's sale. Knit two sizes up to compensate for the slightly finer guage yarn. It's working! The measurements are exactly what the small size should be. Thank you Holly.
