Back of Cabled Hoodie is finished

This is a very easy, quick knit...I am a little worried about the gauge...I am right on what the pattern calls for, but seems to be much smaller...I will have to block each piece before assembly at the end...I hope that makes a difference. I cast on for the left front side and it, too, seems very small. The ribbing is what makes it bunch up tight and when stretched, I am able to get it to the correct size.

Knitting Progress...not much, just a little

The "Quit smoking" cabled hoodie cardigan is coming along slowly...I started back to work Monday so I have not been knitting as much. I am almost done with the back...been a Non-smoker for a week now(well, 1 week, 11 hours 15 seconds according to my SilkQuit meter...298 cigs "not" smoked between the two of us)...and I am having a really bad day today...but I will keep knitting :) Meg-will get you pattern soon...Michael has been staying home with the boys this week a few days...will get to it next week!

Keep on knitting...

Helps keep me from thinking about bad habits. This is the progress since yesterday...I have been knitting in between running errands(in MY car, since we never smoked in there, and I really want to stay away from anything that has to do with cigarettes...this is only the third day of quitting, and it is HARD...but I will not go back!!!)and will be knitting into the wee hours tonight, I feel sure...I have not been able to sleep very well, and boy will it be hard to get back to school on Monday!!! But, it will be sooo good to help with my NEW and improved self!!

Star Destroyer, Smoking, Scarves and Socks...what do they all have in common?

They all happened this past Saturday...My hubby built his Star Wars
Star Destroyer Lego model that he has been wanting for so long...yes,it is almost as big as our kitchen table, and he put this thing together in about 10 hours on Saturday night...while he did the modeling, I did my knitting...did a lot on my jaywalker sock and started a scarf! Michael and I also started taking Wellbutrin to stop smoking...the medicine makes your cigarettes taste horrible and leaves you feeling nauseated...hopefully, these things will cause us to HATE smoking...forever.
