Kiwi Flutter and Echino Kitchen Honeybees

When is it really going to be Spring? It seems like it's warm for a day or two, so I finally break out my summer dresses and t-shirts, and then the next thing you know, it's cold and rainy again! Of course, I could be grumpy simply because I have a full-time job, and therefore cannot knit or sew all day lone (as I secretly want to).
Instead, I limit myself to crafting in the evenings. Proof:
Flutter Sleeve cardi
I started the Flutter sleeve cardigan on April 13 (good thing I wrote the date on my Ravelry page!), with yarn purchased on sale at Webs. The reason that I'm not done with this quick project is very simple and very sad: knitting with non-stretchy yarn KILLS my hands. All I have to do is knit a few rows, and my hands will hurt for days afterwards. (Oh! Maybe that's why I'm grumpy...).
In the meantime, I've been improvising a new project: I'm covering my ugly kitchen cabinets with the lovely Echino honeybee fabric pictured above. Did you know that there is not a single tutorial for reupholstering kitchen cabinets? Fortunately, it's not very difficult!
