They are better, Gilli, Thanks. Unfortunately, I've not felt up to knitting yet. Hopefully soon!
Since I'm a musician, that comes first, and sometimes my hands/wrists are SORE afterwards! :roll:

Work on Summer weight crochet sweater for ME-
"Easy?" knit sweater-restarted AGAIN!-Work on this! It's knit from top down=on row 8 or 9 I think... increases are a bit confusing....

End of year recitals Accomplished(one of which I type programs and do a LOT of work!)
