Man, I've been trying for daaaaaays to get over here and post. And I've been thwarted. Repeatedly. So, hi! It's Wednesday again. The one with all the work in progress. Yep, that's the one.
I've made a metric ton of progress on the Super Secret Citron in the last week. So much, in fact, that I have only 4 more rows to go on the ruffle (!). SO much that you get no picture this week, so that you can see it in its full (okay, it won't be blocked by then so probably mostly-full) glory on Friday. This has been SUCH a fun knit. Admittedly, the rows in section 5 and the ruffle are L O N G, but they still don't feel tedious. The yarn has been lovely, and it's so soft and pretty that I get a little happy *squee* feeling every time I pick it up, even if it's only for half a row or so. Lots of folks have mentioned that they're contemplating knitting it. Here's my advice: Go do it. Right now. It's bound to make you happy.
Posts with no pictures are so boring, though. What to do... Ooh! I know. Here's a picture of the greatest dog who ever lived...
There's been more work on the vest this week, too. But, it still looks a whole lot like it did last week, so no pictures of that, either. Instead, here's a rather frightening picture of me, feeding a big, hairy giraffe (!).
a zoo in Colorado Springs where you can hang out and feed crackers to giraffes as much as you want (weather permitting). We went pretty much immediately, and it was all kinds of awesome.
Now, aren't you glad you stopped by this week to catch up on all the knitting progress? Yeah, I thought so. Seriously, as soon as I can figure out how to get out from under the wheels of this bus, I'll be back more regularly. Life has to chill out soon, right? Here's hoping.
Anyway, I promise something new and exciting next week. And it probably won't involve giraffes. No guarantees, though...
