While my knitting output is greatly diminished I do still knit every once in awhile. I just rarely finish anything. I started the year off well though by finishing yet another pair of Fetching:
I'm also working on another Calorimetry (Susan says I am the Queen of Calorimetry since I've made so many). I actually got into such a rhythm that I kept going on the short rows far too long. I tried to rip it back but I got lost and ended up ripping the whole damn thing out. Its coming along nicely now though:
For those of you wondering. I still have not finished the wedding afghan. Most of the knitting is done, its the seaming that I'm procrastinating on. Then something happened. I laid it out for a photo shoot this morning and discovered a problem:
Do you see it? Try now:
Sigh. Now I have to rip out that seam and re-do it. Ettiquette says a wedding gift can be given anytime in the first year but this is getting ridiculous.
Susan now has me hooked on Downton Abbey. I did indeed take the quiz she linked to and was very pleased with my result:
You are John Bates, valet to Lord Grantham. You probably have a secret identity or are lying about your past to someone you care about, but at least you feel really bad about it. On the plus side, you’re loyal and hardworking, and you’d never rat anyone out to the boss, even when they really deserve it. Noble and a bit mysterious, you’re a genuinely decent person – and everyone’s wondering when you’re just going to tell that nice Anna girl how you feel.
