It always seems like a good idea at the time...
Trust me. I'm a doctor...

I am happy to announce that I managed to finish my 2 baby sweaters prior to the last day of the Olympics:
I highly recommend the pattern - a nice combination of mindless stockinette with the cabling to keep you from getting too bored. Good SnB knitting.
With that out of the way, it was full steam ahead on Poppy:
The sleeves are too short, but my test swatches of the Lorna's Laces Worsted grew significantly with blocking. Since I have several balls of the LL left over, I can always knit them longer.
This photo gives a better shot of the colours. I am glad that I knit the sweater with negative ease.
Yay! I have completed another sweater!
Granted, I have to weave in loads of ends, block it, crochet a border along the neckline, and knit a border (probably garter stitch) along the bottom...but since I am off next week, and have 2.5 straight weeks off in April, I swear by all that is holy that I am going to wear this sweater some time this spring. While it is still appropriate for the weather.
(BTW: if Indian Summer is a warm spell after a period of cold weather, is a cold spell after a period of warm weather called Inuit Winter?)
