sleeves, and more tights

I FINALLY put a sleeve on that mohair hoodie, after knitting and unknitting numerous shaping rows, and ended the cuff with Cascade 220 in the same color. Now, the next sleeve will only needed to be completed in the next 45 days, or so....
Yesterday, I had an all day staff training from way-too-early in the morning to evening (I normally work swing shifts), so I occupied my fingers and the eyes of everyone in my 'workgroup' with the lovely set of top-down tights I started with Cascade Heritage sock yarn-this pair will be for little miss Bella, and the pattern will be correctly recorded so that I can start sharing it with others. My mom always told me to share, but I don't want to mislead in the process. I haven't been knitting as much as I could, but I started that Spanish teaching in the mornings.

ravelry related reasons

I don't have a camera. Right, you knew that. BUT, I do frequently pester visitors to my house and beg them to take pictures of my knitting projects, and then load them onto my flickr account. Do you know how time-consuming it is to move pictures from there to here? Despite the fact that my friends are doing the dirty work for me and I don't really have to spend that much time on my photos...I use flickr for obvious ravelry related reasons, but my dear friend Captain Obvious pointed out that not everyone is on Ravelry, or knows Ravelry, or even cares about Ravelry. So, to those that aren't in the know, I apologize. Most of my finished objects end up in that cool little flickr box the the right of this can have a mini-look!
