I'm sure my employer is too, as this is the sixth sick day in three months. That's more than a bit embarrassing.
Anyway, since I was home, and not sleeping, I answered the door. There was a package for me! From The Sweet Sheep. And this was in it:
Mama E project bag, you know, for those dressier occasions where a Ziploc baggie just won't do.
None of this was bought for any reason in particular, except that one day at work, I got a little click-happy. The package arrived rilly fast, so I guess buying from a Canadian supplier does make a difference.
Sitting here, browsing through Ravelry, allowed me to finish the front of Mini J's Christmas sweater:
Let me show you a closer picture of the flower:
Isn't it cute? I am still amazed, after all these years, that knits and purls can be combined to come up with an infinite number of things.
Now comes the tough part: picking up the stitches for the neck and then finishing the damn thing.
This is where I usually lose interest and wander off to do something else. I'm trying hard not to, though, because if I keep going, I could have this thing done tomorrow, including blocking. That would be a sweater in a week (granted, a kid's sweater) and that's an achievement.
