Bites of an Elephant look like this
I have not been able to do much knitting since my last post but I did want to show you what progress I have made. I pressed the two pieces (back and the left panel). They look really flat but I am sure once it's assembled and fluffed up a bit by a squirming baby, it will be just fine.
This is the left front panel...



The back looked really nice when it was pressed ...

In the last few days I have started the right front panel and discovered there is an error. So I decided to repeat my same error for the other side and hope they match. I am hoping since my three day catering job is over as of today, I will be able to relax at night and not worry about all the food I pledged to make.

I think my third and last class for the Magic Loop socks is sometime next week. I am hoping that I can get caught up to the rest of the class and finish those socks. Maybe this will be a one sock deal?

This little sweater jacket is looking SO pretty. I'm a new enough knitter that I don't think of blocking my pieces before I'm completely through with a project. It really makes you feel like things are going well and you're making a bit of progress.

I just can't stop being jealous of your job. :)

Honestly, I am not sure if I should have ironed it or not but I wanted to see what it will look like. I needed some inspiration since I have not had time to knit. I don't commute to work on a train, so I can't knit there. I work in the fish department at a grocery store and I really don't want my knitting to smell like fish, so it's hard to find time. I do love it though!

Looking GREAT! Sometimes it is a lot easier to just take it one step at a time, some patterns can be incredibly overwhelming! : )
