I'm still moving along slowly on Snowbird. It's taking me almost 10 minutes per row right now and I think part of that is just the weight of the sweater and moving it around on the needles. I know when I finish it I'll be glad that it was all done in one piece and I won't have to seam it, but right now, it has to be rearranged a bit, several times per row. You know what though? Do you see the weird places on the lower fronts? Those are my pockets! I've started pockets! The stitches for the pocket linings are on holders for now and I'm knitting on the actual pockets. I think I'll probably go back and add I-cord edgings to the tops of the pockets just to make them look like the other edges of the sweater, but I can decide that later. Did I mention that I'm knitting on the pockets? Did you know if you type pockets enough the word starts to look really odd?

I will definitely do a blog post (or possibly two) on socks and resizing them. I'll sit down and sort through my ideas. Also, since its hard to print from a blog, I will probably upload the blog posts to Ravelry as pdfs for free downloads. That way you can save and print or put it on your smartphone or wherever you feel like you need the information.
