Short and Sweet
Today I'm going to keep my post short, sweet, and to the point...
I tried on Scotch Mary and took a good look in the mirror... I like the sweater! Very cool. And the even cooler part? I realized that I have a mere two inches left to knit on the body. Knowing this, I'm figuring (and hoping) that I can have Mary wrapped up by Wednesday. Unfortunately there's no sun in the forecast, so I'll be waiting a bit to get the patter photos taken. I get so antsy pants waiting for the photos because I always want to show everyone *now*. Patience I have not.

With this knowledge that I am so very close to the end of this sweater project (the experience of which I have completely loved) I decided to take it easy today and give my hands a little break. For now I am off to run some errands with Chris and then we're going on a dinner date. He treats me so good. :-)

Erica, I so agree. It was so nice to find you as a designer because I never make sketches of my ideas. For me it's just easier to experiment while knitting. The knitting is my palette. When I see designers sketches, I can't imagine how they can figure out what they are doing without the hands on process. I'm such a visual and tactile learner. It's really been fun following you as you develop this pattern. ♥c

It's just too much math and lines for me. I like the actual design/creative part. I don't find numbers very appealing. But I gotta do it if I'm gonna get the job done right.... and especially if I expect anyone else to ever make one of my designs!

Not my favorite thing either. Maybe I should take the drafting course my DH recently took. That might help me.

It was a good day :o) today... making schematics. Not my most favorite thing in the world.

It sounds like you are going to be able to meet your goal of finishing before the end of the month. That means a day with Chris is definitely in order! ♥c
