Depressing Knit Night???

Now you ask why is knit night depressing??? Remember a few posts back me saying I'm going to get those orange sleeves done??? I did and I shouldn't have and to make matters worse I did both of them!! I dragged them along to knit night at Lynn's to compare them to her sweater that's finished. They are waaaayyyy too long!! I could sew them up and I would have hand warmers knit right into my sleeves! How annoying is that??? And I thought I was so smart getting them out of the way first!
My first reaction was to put the whole thing away~~if I did that it would never see the light of day again so I thought that probably wasn't the best idea.
Yesterday afternoon I yanked them out of my bag and started frogging~~it was painful!
Very painful~~~
After fiddling around with it a bit I wound up shortening the length about three inches! So now I'm rekniting sleeve one. A couple more decreases and it will be finished and then on to number two. I did start the back and I'm almost through the bottom ribbing.
I've decided I'd like to do a tank top~~no sleeves!! Maybe that is something I could get done in time to actually use this summer!! I just need a pattern!
A surprise was waiting for me when I got home today! My bottle swap came~~
Michelle in MN. had me. I received some awesome lime green cotton yarn that I've never seen before. I think it would make some really nice summer socks but I'm not sure if it's ok to use for socks? She also sent a really nice shade of yellow that's a cotton/lycra blend that I'd like for socks too.
Weather is still cold/cool. It's only in the 60's and after last week it feels cold to me! Figures, I finally broke down and bought a pair of shorts and since then it's too cold to wear them!
I'm still waiting for the results of all my blood work. When I called the Dr's office they said the new policy is you have to make an app. to get the results from any tests! What a crock! So I have to wait until Tuesday to get the verdict.
Jumping off to make dinner and work on "the sleeve" until KK gets home.
Off to post pictures~~~

I'm glad you liked your 'bottle'. :-)
Have you seen the pattern for the Shapely Tank? It's free on the White Lies Designs website. I've used it and love it.
