So far behind
So far behind that it's kinda embarrassing!
There was a Halloween party. I was too busy swilling wine to take too many pictures! I went as Leia, complete with bagels.
Alas, the bagels did not last and had to be repaired with bright green Wollmeise, which was the only yarn I had on hand.
Zena went as the Cookie Monster.
Seriously, how fab is that?!? And once again, although I took my camera, I failed to put it to use.
Then a bunch of seriously fun people went away to a fab place for an awesome weekend.
Sewjourn. Highly recommended.
Questionable table manners. (had to be quicker to get that!)
and Hanging Rock. We tried to make a sacrifice, but she refused to get out of the car. Besides, they wanted $10 just to enter the parking area!
And amongst all that, there was some knitting.
KawkawEsque saw some action.
Still on sock one.
Hitchhiker is growing. 32 points or so, but only halfway through the skein. I think I'll get more than 42, but we'll see.
Not much happening with Sophie.
The Valentine cardi is seeing most of my knitting time. I finished the body while I was at Sewjourn, but the body looked way too small. So I blocked the cardi when I got home, before I started the sleeves, in case I had to rip it out.
Happy to report that the fit is just fine!

Not feeling 100% lately, so to save you all from interminable boredom, we'll go picture heavy.
Here's where the knitting is at.
Hitchhiker Scarf. No Progress.
And yet another Sophie for a workmate, who is having a baby.
More projects than I usually like to have on the needles, because lack of progress drives me nuts.
And a picture I took of Em on the weekend, just so you can all see how much she's grown up.
