What I did today.
Yes, that's pencil on graph paper. The bright green bits are just landmarks in the pattern; they'll be knit up in the same color as the gray pencil. This might be my mother-in-law's Christmas sweater, in sage green and beige. I'm dithering between this, original design, or doing "Russian Prime" from "Meg Swansen's Knitting". Either way it'll be knit in the round with steeked arm holes and a square neck line. We'll see how far ahead I am in the "Knit a sweater a month" plan when I start it; that'll decide whether it'll be an original pattern (takes longer) or someone else's pattern.
I also started on the yoke of Tut Tut.
Then I decided it looked like shit, ripped it out, and am now knitting an all-white ribbed raglan sweater with bell sleeves. Fuck it.
My child has begun wearing socks on her hands. I guess if you're two and never done it before, it's interesting.
And Sekhmet, that fucker, has been helping me knit.
Needless to say, it's been a bad day. After a week of really healthy eating, I lost my head tonight, went on a binge, and ate half a candy bar.
