My sweater wrap is off the needles but it needs to be blocked. What worries me a bit is there appears to be some pulled stitches and I don't know if blocking will take care of that.
I bought mats and pins for blocking, so I'm really going to try to do this correctly. This means I'll be back on the Internet, researching blocking procedures. I think I'll go to the store and get some Wool-lite because I'm hoping that will fix the problems with the pulled stitches.

I started another cat blanket in order to use up some of my stash yarn and to practice knitting stripes. The blanket is coming along great (it's so easy - all knit stitch) but I messed up by running out of a color in the middle of a row.

I'm just going to look at the error as a lesson learned.

And sometimes, even doing this for Mr. Grumpbump pisses me off. So, having to take care of a lazy realtor, who is supposed to be working for me, makes me completely insane and I have a hard time controlling my anger.
