Over Stargate and an episode of CSI last night, I finally finished the Dale sweater!! Ends darned in, buttons sewn on, the works. (No. I did not put in a zipper like the pattern called for. I do zippers for no man. Or woman. Or child.) I still have to block it, but that's on the menu for today. Hopefully it will be in the mail tomorrow and I can get busy with the summer tank. I need to get finished with THAT, because I've got a wrap on the needles that needs finished, and yarn coming for two more projects (a scarf and a kid's sweater, nothing epic), and I'm plotting two or three MORE projects. Including Turoe, which I've got to be insane for even contemplating.

I need help.

In other happy news (I guess), it turns out that my hand/arm problems are NOT being caused by knitting like a fiend, it's being caused by... uh... too much heavy lifting. As in, the eighteen pound baby we've got hanging around here. So, uh, I can knit all I want, I just have to quit lifting the baby and carrying her around. Yeah. That's gonna work. I wonder if there's any point in seeing a doctor, because they're going to say 'quit lifting', and yeah, like that's going to happen. But it's not the knitting, so that's good.
