Wednesday Update

October 7th, 2009 · 5 Comments

You and I both know, I’m not really good at regularly scheduled updates. ¬†I can post every day for a while and then go days/weeks/months without a word. ¬†I’m going to try for a more regular schedule, something like Wednesdays and Sundays. ¬†They seem pretty well spaced. ¬†But then again, there is my newly discovered distaste of structure for structure’s sake.

Anyway… Sunday I did spent with the Sox and Rhinebeck. ¬†I got much further than I expected to during the game. ¬†Before the end of the third inning, I’d finished the back. ¬†Before the end of the 7th, the left front was done and the 3 needle bind off of that shoulder was done. ¬†I took a break for dinner and the ritualistic washing of the children. ¬†Another hour or so before bed and I had the right front completed as well.

Progress slowed to a crawl from there though. ¬†Being home sick isn’t good for my knitting production. ¬†Well it is good for knitting, depending on the illness at hand, but this tummy bug didn’t preclude actually working. ¬†I pulled out the laptop and telecommuted. ¬†Yay!

Boo for knitting though. ¬†No commuting = reduced knitting time. ¬†I did pick up the stitches for the first sleeve on Sunday, but hadn’t progressed much further until last night when I returned to it in earnest. ¬†Between that and the commute in this morning, I’m a goodly way into the sleeve.


(Click for big) .  I should have the sleeve done this evening with the outside chance of getting the stitches picked up for the second sleeve as well.

I don’t think I’m going out on a particularly rickety limb by saying that I should have this done for the big festival. ¬†But I know better than to piss off the fickle knitting goddess 🙂

Craft on!

    Rhinebeck looks lovely and your pace of production as always just floors me. Is it going to be yellow? For some reason I thought cream from the previous pictures… Hope you are feeling better soon!

    We are making the trip there on Sunday. I will look for you and your sweater!

    Hope you are feeling better. I can take anything but stomach bugs. Blech…
