My main goal for yesterday was to get the second veterans quilt quilted but I seem to be having a little trouble with the longarm. I'm getting thread nests and need to figure out the issue. I might get to that today.
Instead, yesterday I worked on the surgery drain bags and my crochet sweater. This is a set of about 40 bags. I have 60 more cut but these all use gray thread. I got the tops hemmed and the loops added. Next it's back to the serger to stitch the other side. I'll work on them a little each day and they should be done in no time.
Mostly yesterday I watched football and worked on my sweater. I finished the second sleeve and started the bottom ribbing. I need to add a couple more rows and then do the front and neck edging. There's so much football this weekend that I might have this done before Monday.
I really love how this is coming together. It fits perfectly and I think I will wear it a lot. It's even got me interested in making more crochet garments. That's something I was ready to swear off about half way through this project. I'll have to look through my patterns for something summery. As soon as I finish this I'll first get back to the big blanket and workin gthat a while before I start something new.
