Ack, HolyKnitter, I know, I know. Part of me telling you I wanted to update once a week was so y'all could ride me when I didn't!

Knitting update:
Secret Knitting is done. And about to not be a secret because ANN ARBOR! I NEED DENISE'S ADDRESS! Or hey! Denise! I need your address!

I'm working on the UFO Rebecca Wrap. Miles of Brioche Stitch = done! First sleeve = done! YAY! Second sleeve is almost up to the bit where I start increasing. Then sewing in the sleeves.

I'm looking for a good pattern for a sweater done in a fingering weight yarn. Preferably a stripey cardigan. I know. I'll have to design it myself. Poo.

I have some knitting books to review, too.

Thai Prisons+Mattress Stitch+Wine=Love

Ok, so, one of my resolutions this year is to update this every week.

So, what have I been up to? Well, I've been in a bit of a slump lately. I'm not sure why, and with school and work, I almost didn't realize it. I've started up again, but what I'm working on is a big fat secret, because it's a long overdue present. When I started it, it was not at all near overdue, but now, woo-boy.

So that's the knitting front. Plus, I still haven't found my knitting needles that got lost in the move. I know they're somewhere in some box in the attic.

But, last night was all about a bottle of merlot, Bridget Jones - The Edge of Reason, and mattress stitching up seams on the secret knitting.

I also knit some rows on the Rebecca wrap that has been languishing forever. Woot! Maybe my slump is nearing an end? Let's hope so.
