Whew. It feels weird to have the election over with, doesn't it? Mr. T asked me what I was going to do now that it's over. Easy. What I usually do... cook, clean, knit, carpool kids around, say "No" to the umpteen requests for candy/video games/serious weaponry. This morning I went through my Ravelry groups and left most of the political ones. No more obsessively checking 538. The knot in the pit of my stomach, gone. No more nasty political ads!
I finished knitting the body of the Simple Knitted Bodice, and started the first sleeve. I'm just at the point on the sleeve where I'll start the lace pattern.
Here's a close-up pattern of the lace panel:
This one was taken without a flash.
The sweater looks small and short. I keep telling myself to Trust The Swatch. It will grow. It told me so. I hope to have sleeve 1 finished sometime tomorrow, but I'm not going to take bets on that. It will be a pretty knit-free weekend, so don't expect to see FO pictures on this anytime soon.
Then I have to decide what to knit next. Estonian Lace perhaps? There are a couple of possibilities in the book that would look beautiful in the Yarn Chef yarn I got a little while back. I promised Sr. Jr. a knit hat, too. Fingerless gloves would be nice, now that the weather's getting colder. We keep the house pretty cool, so fingerless gloves would be nice for knitting, and sitting at the computer in the even-colder study. Plus, I still have to finish more socklets for my MIL.
Where is that bottle of time that kippi mentioned?
