This has been one of those weeks around here.  Mickael's work is busy, busy, Caleb has had his big school tests this week, and I'm just trying to keep track of what each of them are doing so I can get them out the door with whatever they need that day.  I'll be glad when the weekend rolls around!
I did get a little bit more done on Mickael's first sock.  I'm still working on the gusset decreases, and I'm not to the point where I can count stitches to figure out how many more decreases to work, but I can see progress past the heel flap, so I know I'm moving forward.

I'm also working on the cardigan and trying to get it finished up.  I'll have to sew the sleeves in when I finish all the knitting, so I've got to figure that into my schedule.  Since this is for my Sweaters 2013 project, it's supposed to all be finished by midnight Tuesday.  I think I squeaked the last one in right at the end of the month too - I've got to knit a little faster on these!

No sewing machine update tomorrow - I'm still cleaning the head.  I've gotten the main part clean and the decals clean - I actually found a little decal that I didn't know was there as I cleaned!  I'm working on details now and trying to decide things like, "Since I've taken apart the tension assembly, and I'm planning on taking apart the bobbin drop in area, would it be crazy to take apart the bobbin winder section too?"  I know that the more things I take apart, the cleaner I can get them, but the more things I take apart, the more I have to get back together exactly right, and like the treadle irons, once it had a good oiling, the head just glides beautifully!

I did get the parts I'd ordered to get it all running once it's clean (the treadle belt, a new bobbin tire, more feet, and a second needle plate to put seam allowance markings on), so hopefully another week will have her up and running and I'll find out if she sews!
