I finished the fronts of Oblique this weekend, got the ends woven into all of the pieces and their next stop is a nice soaking before I block everything. Once the pieces of this sweater are blocked, I can sew them together and add front bands. I will need to find some buttons for the sweater before I do front bands so I can make sure the buttonholes fit the buttons - funny how that's usually a good idea.
I need to spend some time over the next couple of days finishing the book sock so I won't be casting on for a new project just yet.
For those of you who believe you have missed MS4 sign ups, you haven't. MS4 has never opened for sign ups so it certainly hasn't closed. If you reread the last paragraph in Friday's post you'll see that I was referring to MS3 being closed. MS3 was 2007's Knit Along. It's closed. MS4 will run later in the summer of 2008. It hasn't opened yet. I sent an email out to the Pink Lemon Knits group also trying to clear up the confusion. I don't know if the problem was a misreading of my post or if there are rumors going around the Internet, but you haven't missed anything. I promise.
