In which our protagonist is sleep-deprived

Hate to be a tease, but so far I am so, *so* chuffed with this vest! Should be done super soon, and will hopefully get photos in a reasonably timely manner. With the Seder and my final two exams in the next couple of days, I shall be incommunicado for a short bit again, but I am excited for this project to be put into use (I also have two other FOs that have been sitting for far too long, so there should be some good fodder for the next few weeks).

Be well, peoples!

In which... Um... what's the right sound for sheer terror?

Because I'm sure a couple of people might be curious...

I started with the arm steeks. Small, sharp scissors and my fortification of choice: herbal tea, because as much as I would like caffeine or beer at this point, I feel that would be tempting fate.


Eyes on the prize, eyes on the prize....


First inch in...


Almost there...


Ok. Phew. Moving on. Right then, other armhole.


Aaaand a tube is now a pullover!


I will spare you more detail shots, so magically, the pullover is now a cardigan!


I'm now working on the lovely lovely garter bands, and there is a definite sense of relief in the air.

Hope y'all are well, people!

In which the sun shines... sporadically

First, business.
I really mean to keep this well updated and documented, but Exam Brain got to me and well... I know the last you saw was a swatch, but now I am ready to knit the shoulder saddles...
At this point, I think I'll just talk more about it later. Well, one thing: holy crow, I could be ready to steek tonight. Ahhhh!


The weather was gorgeous over the weekend. Today, it has been somewhat undecided. Gloriously sunny one moment, but the next thing I know, I'm drenched and I remembered why wet jeans and bicycles are not good friends.

That being said, The Wee Ones took advantage of Saturday's sun and had themselves a little Spring barbecue!


I think my invite must have gotten lost in the mail (or under the piles of paper and clothes in my room.)


Looks to me like the pool lifeguard is dozing off...


Hey, what's that pooch doing in there! Oh, probably the doggie paddle, I guess...

Have a good week everyone!
