don't call it a comeback.

Miss Muffy & Rahime, and, to an extent Simon did a very good job of making me feel like a worthwhile blogger. A summer break? Who was I kidding? Eff that! In fact, maybe I'll even post *more* than usual! maybe. probably not.

To be honest, I only logged into blogger today to edit a previous post. One single word, used so innocently, seems to be steering 'undesirables' to my blog. It sucks to feel sick to your stomach after checking your stat-tracker & seeing the types of google searches that led people here. So I opted to self-edit.

And while I'm logged in, why not take Rahime's advice & show you a progress shot?

I've started the neck placket! hoorah!

I know it looks wee, but the waffle stitch creates an increidbly stretchy fabric - I tried it on & it's all systems go. And the sleeve...that poor sleeve is growing just a little bit every lunch hour.

And oh yeah, I maybe sorta kinda cast-on already for Demi. It was an accident, I swear. I was only going to knit a few rows to see how the yarn looked & before I knew it, I had decided that yeah, the yarn looked pretty awesome & why not just finish the bottom ribbing? And hey, what the heck, lets go for some of those cables?

I'm glad you're not taking a summer break either! I know what you mean, though, sometimes it's hard to think of anything witty to say about the same project you've been working on for weeks. But at the very least, I love me some progress shots.

All right! Woo hoo! And wow, that is a lot of waffle stitch. Esp. in fingering weight. But I do like that pattern - if yours is super cute I don't know what I'll do, I might just have to knit it.

I once posted that the amount of laundry I have to do makes me want to be a nudist. I got nudist hits for weeks. LOL

haha! Sarah, that's pretty funny! Mine was more on the disgusting side of things.
Rahime - I'm just kidding myself into thinking I'm knitting a *giant* sock Think about it, all those socks you knit have primed you to whip out a fingering weight sweater!

I hope you don't stop blogging, I know I have been crappy about updating, but I look forward to peeking into your life :)
I am excited about your progress on that sweater...I wish I could say my scarf is going that fast...I already have my eyes on another project..Bad bad knitter!

Yes, don't stop posting. Breaks are for the weak! Glad you're not one of them.

Miss Muffy said...

Yay! Of course you're a worthwhile blogger!

Now what was that word... hmm...

Miss Muffy said...

Wait, I think I know now. EWWW!

Miss Muffy - yeah, i think you guessed it - and the google searches that I saw in my stat-tracker were.... uh.....gross.
