I'm half way through the 15th repeat. One and a half to go! And then the edging. But since today is a lazy stay at home and listen to audiobooks day (we're about 11 hours into The Time Traveler's Wife, though that's not all from today!), it's possible that it will actually get finished today. Which means blocked tonight or tomorrow morning which means pictures soon. And then it will be all ready to get scrunched back up and stuffed in a suitable package to be mailed since I won't likely see the recipient at this point until April or so.

And that leaves me trying to decide if I want to try to swatch for Fair Isle 101 during a Super Bowl party tomorrow, or try to spin (amidst kids and boisterous fans.. not likely to be safe), or continue working on the Lily tank, or try to start a pair of socks or the scarfy bit that I wanted to make with the Mountain Colors yarn.

Oh, and in a fit of impulsiveness, I've joined a small knit-along for Rogue with a couple friends. The deal is that we'll only work on it Monday evenings, so I figure I can make time even during the Olympics to work on it. I ordered yarn for it Wednesday or Thursday, so here's hoping it will arrive Monday so I can start it with the rest of the group. After months of indecision on the yarn, and after just dropping a fair amount to get the yarn for Fair Isle 101, I decided to go with KnitPicks Wool of the Andes in Evergreen. I don't have a dark green sweater and it's a color I really like, so it was a fairly logical choice. Progress pictures will get posted every week so I can keep the others (who all see each other in person Monday evenings) informed of my progress.

Oh, oh, we cried and cried when we listened to the Time Traveler's Wife. Good, but sad.

The Time Traveler's wife sounds wonderful; have to check that one out. Hope your Super Bowl knitting was fun!

Thanks for visiting my blog!

I like the color! The price for this yarn is really good too. I think I need to purchase some of the asperagus.

We'll have to post progress pictures each Monday!
