Progress, Minimal Pictures

I’m composing in word and preparing to do a cut-and-paste ‘cause Blogger is down until 3 my time. Just a warning – my primary knitting projects are all at home. These pics are what I have with me at the office. Meeting knitting for my 4:30 meeting (non-work) that I’m probably going to skip.

Here’s the pathetic “progress” I’ve made on my second Cherry Tree Hill sock. Flash wouldn’t fire and this is kinda out of focus.

And here’s the progress on Fuzzy Foot 4. This one is for my brother. I’m through the heel, so now it’s just flat knitting to the 10” mark, then my toe decreases.

Just to have more photos, here’s a good cloud picture from about three weeks ago. We don’t get clouds like this here in LA very often. It’s almost always either solid light-gray overcast or perfectly clear blue sky. Any “normal” clouds are unusual, hence the photo.

So I’ve been knitting. A lot. Have the front panel finished and on holders for my alpaca cable sweater and just need to get the armpit/shoulder shaping figured out for the back. Then it’s sleeves and finishing. yay. (excited about the sweater, not so much about the finishing!)

I’m also most of the way through the front of my v-neck pullover. The colors rock. I’m going to need to get a long-sleeve t-shirt to wear underneath, though. Unless washing softens this thing up, it’s gonna be scratchy.

I’m also up to the armpits on the back of my Countess sweater. Boy, is that some yummy yarn!

Sorry this post is so boring. There hasn’t been much of anything going on in my world except work and knitting. And there aren’t any real knitting pictures. I suck. The big plan for tomorrow? “Dress down” for work and clean out my insanely cluttered office. It needs it. Believe me. Those coffee cups on my desk? Barely holding their real estate against the mountain of paper and loose CDs that are threatening to spill all over everything. Ugh. I’m a slob.

I am, however, going quilting on Friday night. Woo-Hoo! Bearly, here I come! Do I know what I’m going to be working on? Absolutely not. Hmmm. Something to ponder!

Finally, here’s a very fun little link I found on someone else’s blog. I love the muppett show and liked the engine’s choice, so here it is. Enjoy! :)

I just cast on for yet another pair of Fuzzy Feet this morning too. This pair is for my sister. After that, I have at least one more pair I have to knit, and another optional pair. Joy.
