I'm taking the morning off in order to take this mess to the vet for his annual shots:
I really don't have time to blog today, but it's not often I have any time at home in the morning where housework, laundry, or exhaustion isn't calling my name so I decided to post at least a little something. Unfortunately, the lack of blog posting has more to do with the fact that I'm definitely a morning person and can't seem to think straight after 2 p.m. in order to put thoughts into words. Who am I kidding--after 2, I barely have thoughts to put into words...
Another reason for so little blogging is my definite lack of progress on anything constructive. The vest I'm knitting my mom? Still waiting to be seemed at the shoulders (I mean really, how hard is it to find time to seam 3 inch strips of knitted fabric together??). The baby items? Waiting on buttons for one and I managed to run out of one color of yarn for the second project that I can't get locally and is currently out of stock online. Yay for planning.
I did finish the Waihi Socks by Sarah Ronchetti:
|In a hurry, so photo quality? Nope.
The right leaning cables are still wonky after blocking, but I can live with it.
The only other project I've got on the needles right now is the Midsummer Aran pullover by Ginevra Martin I'm knitting with a hemp blend yarn. The progress is painstakingly slow, but I'm getting far enough along that seeing the pattern develop is fueling my motivation. As you can see, I've got quite a bit to go.

I don't think I'll attempt anything this fiddly for a while after I get this finished. This project is sucking every last bit of what little "after 2 p.m." energy I have and I'm longing for some mindless stockinette stitching. I also need to find a new sock pattern to use with this lovely cake of Madelinetosh Tosh Sock in color way Rain Water.
