Sweater angst

I am as far as I can get on my sweater.....
The long garter band is done as of today

and the sweater back is done.

Now to combine them. I can't figure it out.  So I made a little prototype

and that didn't help much.  I feel pretty dumb.  I need to step a way for a day
or two and revisit!

So, in the meantime, I will work on the 2nd sock:

check out Martha's lovely sweater!  Love the colors

She is having a little trouble with the lace at the top, so she is working on
a sock until she figures it out.

Ruth is away this week so no update from her.

It has been cold the last couple of days. Yesterday I made an awesome
roast beef dinner with mashed potatoes, gravy, green bean cassarole,
corn and pineapple cottage cheese.  Today I'm making stuffed peppers.

Wish both Martha and me luck this week that we can figure these
 &^%$%^& patterns out !!

In other news:

Joe came running into the house yesterday and very intently said
"hey Con, you got any yarn?"....omg, I laughed so hard 
 I had tears streaming down my face.  Finally I looked at him and
said, "no, I'm all out, let me run to the store and get some".
his reply was "you a**, he laughed and went about his business.
It's the little things that keep us amused, I guess
