This post may be a bit random since it's been hard to organize my thoughts these past few days. My knitting has been random and sporadic as well. I've got way too many projects on the needles and I continue to start stuff. Maybe if we had some progress on the house situation I'd feel a little better.
We were supposed to close today at 4. We didn't. What pisses me off in this whole situation is just the lack of communication. Believe me, I understand that things happen. I just want to know what's going on and WHY it's going on. There were just way too many little things that should have been taken care of before today. I truly believe that we could have gotten it all done today if the right hand knew what the left was doing. Now we are scheduled to close on the same day that our household goods are to be delivered.
Enough of that. After a couple of glasses of wine (and some pizza) I'm much better able to deal then I was this afternoon. Now where was I? Oh, yeah, my knitting...
I've decided to measure DHs sweater progress by balls. I mean, what better way to track the progress of a 'Manly Sweater'? Two balls down, 13 (I think?) to go. This is slow going people. I think I'm going to have to mandate a certain number of rows a day or something. Perhaps a two ball a week minimum.
The Ballet Camisole is *this* close to being done, and I have all but lost interest. To the point, even, where I was thinking about ripping it. I don't know why.
I'm also working on Picovoli, , Orangina, the Child's Placket Neck Sweater, Sesame, a 5~hour Baby Sweater, and a pair of Jaywalkers. What's wrong with me? I might need an intervention.
Thanks for all the kind comments on my shawl! I really enjoyed knitting it, and fear I might also cast on for another lace project to add to the Mountain of projects that are in various stages of completion. I think someone asked how I liked the KnitPicks Gloss? I liked it a lot. I'm pretty sure I'll use it again. I hope they plan to broaden their color range.
Have any of you guys signed up for Socktoberfest? I have!
