Yes, it's been a while... and it will be a while again, as Andy and I are going on a little trip to NYC. Without the baby. (blinks back tears) But we know we are going to have a great time, and she gets to spend the whole week with her Mimi and Papa, not to mention her cousins, so she won't even miss us.
Anyhow, I finished an all-knit Monkey, and it looks great, but you'll have to wait until we get back to see it because I've been too busy getting ready to go to take pictures of it. We're taking the train, not flying, so I'll probably have the second one done by the time we return.
See you in about a week!

Here they are bonding over Rose's Sesame Street toy. A very good time was had by all.

I picked up stitches over the back and two sleeves, leaving the top of the lace panel alone. Then I worked ribbing in short rows. The ribbing slopes down nicely to the front two raglan lines where the lace starts, and pulls the neck in just enough. It's still an open, summery feel, but now I'm not worried about my bra straps showing, let alone my entire shoulder.
p.s. I should have straightened up the lines of the sweater for these pictures. It's not really all slanted and off-center. Sorry about that.

I used the recommended yarn, Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece. I love it. This has become one of my favorite yarns. This project was started on May 5, 2007, finished June 29, 2007.
