Just call me "bangin"!

Aww Hell my peeps! I got some shit DONE this weekend!
Alright. That might be a tad dramatic....
And have something to do with the fact I watched "8 mile" on Saturday night.
I'll try to keep the Big D plates to a minimum. But I make no promises, yo.

First up, Clue #6 for SotS. After the eternity last weeks clue seemed to take, finishing up this one quickly was off the hook. Sorry, I mean "awesome". ahem.

It was nice to have some uninterrupted knitting time during daylight. I hadn't realized how many weekends in a row we have had "stuff" to do all day on Saturday and Sunday. Now, I know, I went to SnB last Sunday, but that doesn't count. It was "accidental" found knitting time. I thought my parents were staying later than they did, so I suddenly found 3 hours. Not complaining, just saying.

Clue 6 brought the beads back! I missed the beads. The beads make this stole sick! (I bet Eminem never referred to and stole or shawl as "sick".) and we are up to 50" unblocked!

I also cranked on the Colette sweater. I finished up the fronts on Saturday, the sleeve edgings on Sunday, and the sleeves today.

If I can managed to continue, I'll be in a good place to finish this by the end of November! I'm concerned about the amount of time it takes to seam, but I guess I can just not sleep the last few nights of the month if I have to. pysnah, dog.

No progress on the other WIPs, but they are all still on the radar. After I finish the sleeves on the sweater, I have to block it, which means I have one night of "other project" time. It's not much, but at least I can have a little forward momentum.

I think that's it. I'm outy.

If it's National KNIT a Sweater in a Month, doesn't that mean that you can technically do the seaming after November? It's not National Knit, Block, Seam, and Reblock a Sweater in a Month. ;-)

For shizzle, yo.

Oooh, that shawl is the shiznit, dawg! And it's only November 13, you've got plenty of time to finish your sweater.

Yo yo yo. Them are some sleeves. Shazam.

Wait a minute, Ms. Belley --

Isn't "shazam" most recently attributable to Gomer Pyle? ;-)
