Every once in awhile I check out what keywords landed folks at my blog. Yesterday I had one that made me just about spit my soda all over the keyboard of my computer.
If you read my blog, you might remember a post last fall where I valiantly tried to finish off a couple of projects before casting on a new one that I had just received yarn in the mail for. I repeatedly mentioned in that post that even swatching would be cheating.
Weeellllllll, someone did a search (I don't even want an explanation for this one folks) for "obsessive compulsive cheater" and landed at my blog with it! I wonder how disappointed they were when they saw that swatching was a knitting activity and not a sexual activity LOL!
Tonight my snails got little faces to go with their little butts while I watched American Idol. Anybody else hooked on that show? The kid that sang Jailhouse Rock cracked me up!
The snail mittens seem to be knitting up pretty quickly, when I actually knit on them, so there may be hope yet to get them done my month's end. I'm not going to push it though, since I really want the Russian Coat done more than I want these done.
Speaking of the Russian Coat, there has been progress on it as well. I finished with the section of the skirt hem that is done in the multicolored Jasper, and am now onto the solid section, worked in Peruvia. It really doesn't look like I've made much progress since the last photo, but there's a ton of stitches packed onto that needle! Tonight is the first night I've been able to do more than 2 decrease rows before having to put it up for the day. I'm sure by this weekend it will have grown by leaps and bounds.
Next up in my quest to finished all these UFOs sitting around will be the fair isle tam I started in December and the Asymetrical Jacket I started *cringe* over a year ago.
