Hey! Get back here! I can explain myself! I even have pictures!
Instead of blogging about my knitting, I have been knitting. In fact, I have been knitting the Angora Bodice like a woman possessed. I have not been this frenziedly monogamous to any one project in... I don't think ever. I'm not sure it's good for my psyche, but I am making bum-loads of Progress:
Here is the bodice at the first fitting late last week (please pardon the booby). If you look very carefully, you can also see my tattoo peeking cheekily from the bottom of the picture. Or is it belly-ly? It seems a little small, but only because I was too lazy to take it off the circular needle. I can tell you that the yarn is yummy, soft, and warm, probably why I've been knitting on it so much.
Now, this is the sweater as of... now. I went through the first set of purl ridges and 2/3 of the lace panel on Saturday when I was stranded in LA. Thankfully I was stranded near the public library, so I took some reading breaks to give my arm a rest. The library also had a cafe and gift shop, so I took a lunch break too.
Unfortunately, the breaks didn't save me from being achey on Sunday, so I did something else productive:
Behold my pattern collection, tucked into individual plastic sheet protectors, sorted by pattern type, and placed into a binder with color-coded dividers. No longer are mismatched pattern printouts wandering the house like they owned the damn place. That's Stinker's job!
