Without much access to the internet. I'm getting a good bit of knitting done, since I'm not constatly checking e-mail and stuff. Yes. I get the irony, thank you. No need to point it out.
I got a copy of the current Knitter's magazine to read on the drive down, and am amazed to find more than one project I want to knit. Not that I have time to in the current knitting lineup, but at least there's wearable stuff there. Amazing. Though I do have one question. Whywhywhywhywhywhy in HELL would someone knit a summer sweater out of alpaca/silk blend? It's like heat stroke in a ball. (I know, I know; the yarn company paid for it. It's still insanely stupid.)
When I threw the tomten jacket in the knitting bag and gave up on it, I started another swirl afghan square. It's almost done. Then I'm gonna start on a pair of SOCKS. (I'm using the 'pom pom' socks pattern from the archives over at Mag Knits. Basically, it's a toe-up sport sock.)
Pictures and more detailed commentary soon. I'm due home tomorrow night. Hopefully the cat will let us in the door.
