Happy WIPWednesday, peeps! I'm still here, and while I don't have anything even remotely exciting to share with you, I can promise that I really have been knitting my fingers off of late. Evidence:
That right there is a solid 12.5" of Austin Hoodie body. I know it doesn't look like much, but really it's a megaton of knitting in frustratingly skinny yarn. I really, really, really want to have this finished to wear to Stitches West next month, but I'm not sure I'll make it. Cross y'er fingers for me?
The most annoying thing about this is that it's a New Year, and I've survived the holidays, and I have some time finally, and I want to knit ALL THE THINGS. Right now, please. And so I'm knitting like a crazy person and making not much visible progress since I'm working at such an itsy gauge.
Only one thing to do: Cast on Something Else! Of course, that's the answer to all manner of knitting dilemmas, right? So by next week, this little pile of yarn...
Should look a little more like a Baby Sophisticate. Yay for instant gratification projects!*
*Yes. I'm well aware that this will actually slow my hoodie pace, thus actually preventing me from achieving my goal. But don't bother me with details right now, there is a shiny new pattern to be conquered! Woot!
PS. You can feel free to pull out the I-told-ya-so's next week when I'm crying about my snail's pace. I think that's fair. Until then, go check out all the other (slightly more sane) WIPW entries over at Tami's. They're sort of universally awesome.
