thank you for all of the great cold-busting tips! my sick-ick was enough to be annoying, but not the ass-kicker i was fearing. it was just enough to make me to slow down, rest, and get to my knitting. here’s where i stand:
my sweater: yeah, this is the one i was going to finish by the end of last january. i was about 90% done, and i decided to start over. at this rate, i might be done at the end of next january.
my skirt: this one was easy to take with me while traveling. i made quite a bit of progress during my flights. but the needles are oh-so-tiny, and what i’ve done up to this point wouldn’t even cover my butt. and it’s supposed to be ankle-length. i should be done by spring 2010. or 2011.
my pillow cover! anna suggested i knit a pillow with my yummy orange yarn. i thought it was a great idea! anna sent me some patterns, but i decided to just start knitting. my original thought was to just do a simple stockinette, and that is what i’ve decided to do, only i like the “wrong” side better. it highlights the texture of the yarn. not sure how i’m going to finish it yet… maybe buttons?
and… the winner of the wires t is comment #8, nikki! thank you again for all of the comments. it’s fun to see old friends and meet new ones… i hope to get back onto a regular blog reading schedule soon…
