Two starts, no finishes

Well this as far as I got with J's jumper last night. I did the ribbing for the back, but I was too tired to start knitting the pattern.

I am knitting a sleeveless aran top for him. The yarn is actually a blue colour which I hope will show up better in daylight. I am using Mariner Aran with wool. It is a 75% acrylic, 25% wool mix. I am not sure where I picked up the pattern, but it was a pattern with 3 free designs. Can't get much better than that!
I didn't get much else done today, other than get the piecing of another block ready for this weeks TAST stitch. This week is knotted cretan stitch. From previous experience, this is not a stitch that I find easy to do.
I am not sure if I will get time tomorrow to get this done, as it is end to end activities with the children. I had thought I was going to get this done on time this week, but never mind, as long as it is done by the weekend I will be happy.

J has enrolled on a 9 week course dealing with Mind, Exercise, Nutrition and Do It. Today the parents were set a challenge. They had to set themselves a goal. This was so that the children could see what it meant to set targets and reach them. My goal is to complete, ready for posting a fabric postcard. I am involved in a fabric postcard swap, so tomorrow I may have to buy some materials to be able to accomplish this. I have to be finished by Tuesday. Nothing like keeping busy.

Looking forward to seeing the new jumper develop. Hope the new stitch goes well - they are pretty fabrics you're using. :0)
