While watching the most awesome Alabama Crimson Tide play Notre Dame last night, I decided I would knit rather than stitch as I knew my concetration would be focused on the game. I was really nervous at the start due to all the pre-game hype that had been going on but I shouldn't have been. Bama was just doin' its usual thing and playing good ball. They are such a great team and I look forward to the start of college ball again in September. Roll Tide!!
As a result of the rather uneventful game, I was able to add some substantial yardage to my first sleeve. I had to start a new ball of yarn and I'm not sure I'm happy with the results as it added a rather larger band of blue than the previous skein's knitting showed. However, when I look at the pictures, there is a larger area of blue in the upper shoulder area so maybe it will be okay.
Here is a more close up photo that shows the colors more truly. I am going to have to go into Portland this weekend and pick up the additional skein I hope they are still holding for me as I won't have enough to finish the other sleeve. I can't wait to start wearing this sweater because it's going to be so warm and cozy.
