Has it really been that long since my last post? How did that happen?

Oh, maybe the crazed knitting and posting on a whole bunch of email lists, that could be it. Oh, that. Oh.

Okay. I am not much further along on the leaf cardigan, but I am done with the stripey commissioned piece. So I am not anywhere near medaling in the Knitting Olympics. I am, however, really happy about how far I've gotten, and actually getting the paid work done, and it's been wicked fun. I think I'm actually gonna make it to the party with Team Boston--whoo! I'm in a groove with the stitch pattern on the leaf cardigan when I do get a chance to work on it (which I probably should do now instead of posting, but so what).

The technical term for this is bailing. But, oh, how spectacular is my wipe-out! I am the Sasha Cohen, falling-on-her-butt Olympic Knitter! I am so, so toast. It's okay, but wow, what a wipe-out.

Thanks, Kat and everybody. Lucia asked, so The Artist's Way is a book version of a creativity workshop. It's set up really nicely, with each chapter covering a week, and specific, useful things to do that (surprise!) are actually helpful. I'm enjoying the process. This is a kind of process I can cope with. Knitting as process, not so much.

Back to all the stuff - the way, way too large pile of stuff.

See you tomorrow, Liz! (I have permission to go as long as Boomer is feeling healthy, which he wasn't earlier this evening. In other words, a definite maybe.)

Nice metting you at the Lcosing Ceremonies party! The leaf sweater is going to be fantastic.

Hell, I think you deserve an honorary medal for the amazing work you've done on the leaf cardigan -- it would have sent me round the bend very early on. Good job!

I just want to say - that sweater is even more spectacular in person!
