I think the body on the Blue Shimmer is about done. That's a full week early. I keep telling myself I'm missing something, a vital measurement or some shaping, or SOMETHING. But I've measured and re-measured and checked my figures and checked the measurements of the victim, and it keeps coming up the right length. Very, very strange.
Now, not only am I short the needles I need to knit the sleeves, I also seem to not have a size 0/2mm needle to knit the hem with. I think the Susan Bates needle that got slashed to ribbons was the only size 0 circular in the house, so today it's off to the craft stores for a new needle, and then a quick stop at the fabric store to get sewing thread to sew the hems with. (Normally I use embroidery floss or a split-in-half bit of yarn to sew down hems, but this fabric is so thin, I really think sewing thread is the way to go.)
Can't believe the body's done. (And now that I've said that, I'm going to spill a pot of spaghetti sauce over it, or something equally horrendous.)
I guess I'll knit like the wind on the doily until I get the needles.
I really, really, really hate deadlines. And I have only myself to blame. I'm such a dumbass.
