Workin' for the weekend

Every once in a while I think to myself, "Yay! It's thursday! One day until the weekend!" Then I remember that I have tech this weekend. Poo. I shouldn't be unhappy about having Dress rehearsals this weekend, as I got to knit all of last weekend. Still, I like to be selfish every now and again. I do get to do an amount of knitting while I am in Tech, but it has to be easy-ish knitting that I can do in complete darkness - not the big challenging brain busting type of knitting.

Very unsatisfing.

I did have a bit of satisfication last night! I finished my Emerald Sweater up to the Neck Line.

I steamed the front edges today to make it easier to pick up the button band and collar. I am goign to work on it tonight at Sn'B. I have a BUTT LOAD of ends to weave in. I might work on that a bit this afternoon while I am waiting for return phone calls. Exciting, I know. But it must be done. Might as well do two uninteresting projects at the same time.

I am cranking away on my Socktopia socks. I'm almost finished with the ribbing on sock #1. I might get sock #2 cast on tonight. I can probably have my pair done for next Sunday or Tuesday. (Not Monday. No computer access that day.) I certainly won't be the first finisher for January, but I really like my socks. Hopefully so will others!

Well, tata! I probably won't be around for a few days. Tech can be hectic as hell, and I might not have time to update. (It can also be BORING as hell, and I'll be able to write a novel.)

I like the color of your sweater. You know, sometimes I wonder how can you knit so fast. I have started my kyoto sweater long time ago, and I am still now knitting the sleeves. *sigh
I just called my car dealer yesterday, and said my car should be in next week or two. ( he also said it would be here in September long time ago) So, I am hoping I will see you next thursday in SnB. oh well, have a nice weekend.

Hey Val, the sweater looks AWESOME!!!! :) Just got back to MA. Hope you're Christmas and New Year was wonderful. We should look at weekends and see when would be a good day to meet up in Northampton. Take care and talk to you soon.
