I've been completely monogamous over the last week or so and have made some nice progress on the banded peasant blouse. I am about 5 inches into the body which is almost half way. I really like this project. The Louet Merlin is wonderful and I think will be great to wear. The simple eyelet pattern is easy, yet entertaining, and with no waist shaping doesn't require too much attention. I really enjoy knits like this, if it is easy enough that I am not making mistakes then I'm not getting angry which makes my husband happy as well :) I think I scare him sometimes when I get frustrated... Anyway, here is my progress so far. It isn't much to look at so far so I panned up and snuck a puppy shot in. Penny is giving me her "Please don't make me go outside in the rain again you know I can hold it" look. In my defense I've been at work all day, she really should have to go by now.

I can't wait to have this finished so I can wear it but I decided to join the Ravelympics which I just realized start tomorrow not Saturday. I'm in the sweater sprint event with Guinevere so I'm not sure when or if I'll be working on the blouse. I was so relieved my yarn was here when I got home today, it gives me just enough time to swatch tonight. This is going to be a real challenge but I'm looking forward to it. I'll try to post my progress and lovely new yarn tomorrow. Yoga time!

Oh, that's so funny; my dogs hate the rain too! They stop over the puddles and stand in the doorway... Your sweater progress is looking very nice!
