Feels like Monday
I did not get around to washing or blocking anything yesterday. I made pretty good progress on taxes, though I'm not yet finished. I also made good progress on the front of Ai's "Goldie" sweater. I'm about half-way with the armhole/neckline and I'll have to paw through my notes to figure out how I handled the shoulders on the first -- I didn't like the way they'd written it the first time, and I still don't. Something about extra tabs that went over the shoulder and were joined to the back instead of regular shoulders. I'll post pics tomorrow -- might even have the front finished tonight. I did find a mistake in a cable late last night, but I ain't fixin' it.
I was tempted to start something new for baby -- they're so fun and quick -- but then I get all engrossed and nothing else gets any attention. Best to finish Goldie; wash, block and seam the hoodie; wash and block St. Brigid; and maybe work a little on Cromarty before starting some wee little thing... My sister already has the Tanguy hat, and I've shown her Miss Dashwood and the "Miss-ter" and the hoodie.
It's been over 11 days and, according to Quitnet, I haven't smoked 223 cigarettes. Man oh man, doesn't that sound like a lot?? I know, it is a lot, but wow -- never wrote down or kept track in that way. "A pack a day" doesn't sound like that much; doesn't sound like over 600 cigarettes in a month! Congrats to Connie, smoke-free for a week as of yesterday; Ann, who's also at 11+ days; and my sister who, of course, quit (one day) before me.
I'm getting sick and tired of seeing At Knit's End pictured on blogs all over the country (okay, NY and UT) and not on MINE!
