What if?

 I made a swatch for a new machine knitting project;
one for a little boy this time to give equal time to that gender's charity box!
And then I didn't use the swatch information at all and just followed the directions
(novel idea for me!)
as written for a baby sweater out of worsted weight yarn.
It will be a surprise for me to see how big it is when finished!
I have a irritatingly bothersome painful case of viral conjunctivitis and have one working eye,
Do you know you need TWO eyes for depth perception?!  
I reach for the yarn and miss the proper spot to work the ribbing stitches on this bottom band
 and it took way longer than it needed.
I will plug along all week and try to get a section (front, front, sleeve, sleeve) done this week and then put it all together this Saturday.  It's good to have plans.....
