First things first, go Sox! I couldn’t stay up for the entire game last night (postseason games that begin at 8 are loooooooong), but I turned in when the score was 12-1 in the 5th inning. I was starting to feel sorry for the Rockies. Looks like I didn’t miss too much after that, as the final score was 13-1. I guess the week off got them a little rusty, eh?
Knitting? I am .75 inches of ribbing around the collar away from finishing Starsky. Then just seaming sleeves and sides and adding buttons and I will have successfully finished it, in just under 2 months. A little longer than I had wanted, but better than never finishing! K. and I consulted, and we’re going to give the oldest 2 girls sweaters and the youngest something else. Her birthday’s in February, which is a good timeframe for finishing her sweater. This way I don’t end up in the loony bin trying to finish all 3 by Christmas. I don’t have any pics of Starsky’s current state due to the lack of light around here, but here the pieces are blocking about a week ago:
This weekend I’m heading over to Knit Happens in Alexandria for a continental knitting class. I have no idea if it will help me knit faster, but hopefully it will be good for me as I start to think of future projects that include colorwork. Can’t wait!
