It has certainly been an interesting week.  Still not feeling totally up to par, but a little better.  Nothing that some uninterrupted, long bouts of sleep couldn't cure...not a clue when that will happen though!

Now, on to the subject at hand...Works in Progress Wednesday.  Seems that each week, I have at least one totally new project and several continued UFO's.  Do not be fooled into thinking that because something new has been started, that I have actually finished something!!!  Recently, with my "offness", can't seem to concentrate for very long, what with the snot eyes, horrific headache, and general malaise.  Truthfully, my apparent knitting ADD, is quite normal.  Who does not secretly, or blatantly, have a multitude of projects on needles?  The really frustrating part of this affliction, is that frequently, I need needles that are currently in use on some other UFO.  The simple and most logical option would be to put the live stitches on a waste yarn holder and come back later.  HOWEVER, what truly happens (and I know this from experience and  from fiber addiction confessionals at my weekly Stitch and Bitch) is that the ONLY logical, rational, acceptable solution is to buy more needles.  Can't ever have too much chocolate, too much yarn, or too many needles.  Can I get an AMEN!  Anywho, here we go for this week's fiber follies....

Yes, you have seen this before.   It has not grown very much from last week.    This is the neck portion of the helmet liner.  At this point, I am ready to go to the next step and start the head portion.  Hopefully, it will be a FO by next week.

Newbie of the week.  A log cabin pattern that I am doing up as a pillow.  Have enough of the yarn to do 2 pillows.  Staring at this picture is NOT helping my headache, and I realize the photo quality and all that photography jargon is not quite right, but hey, my estrogen levels are nil, am in the throes of a hot flash, and I have 2 needles-you have 2 eyes---deal with it! (for  some stupid reason, I thought it would be a wonderful idea to try to go cold turkey off my HRT about 3 weeks ago...I have now become quite convinced it was a BAD BAD BAD idea, as evidenced by the lack of sleep and so on and so forth)

Ahhh, the Louisa Harding sweater. I love you...I hate you...I love you...I hate you...hmmm, you are a pain in the rear end in my current state, but girlfriend, I really do love you.  After the weekend shenanigans, it is securely past the cast on and first two lace rows. 

And now, the Butterfly Pullover.  Pattern is from "Knit 2 Together."  Bit the bullet, and got past the decreases for the armholes. and have started the colorwork. 

Norman is gaurding the bobbins.

I love you Meowmie!  I'm a good kitty...

WHAT?!?!? I thought you laid this yummy softness down for me to lay on.

Fine, but be honest now, does this sweater make my butt look big?


  1. Such a cute kitty!! I have two of my own. The projects are looking great. I love the new pillow WIP! Can't wait to see if finished. The colors look awesome together.

  2. AHaha! Love the pictures of you cat and sweater! Can't wait to see the finished pillows too! Thanks for commenting on my blog. Oh, and you MUST share the recipe for the Nutella pie if you have it!
