I knit from 2pm to about 1:30am, stopping only for an hour to eat.  I got 8" done on my Aimee, which is pretty good, considering I won't have nearly that much time to knit for the next several days.

Pictures on my blog.

I hope it doesn't because I watched Arrested Development instead of the olympics, and I'm trying to figure out the purling through the back loop thing because there is no way around it and I should learn it anyway. 

Hi box of purls, here is a link to an animated graphic of how to  Purl into the Back Loop!

Enjoy  Wink


Thanks so much for posting that link!  I thought I had it sort of figured out last night but the animation sort of made it click for me.  
I finished the back last night for my sweater at about 3am because I kept saying one more row one more row and then I thought I might as well finish it.  

I'm thinking I may try and take pictures of my progress for the weekend and maybe post tomorrow.  Either on my blog or here.  My house doesn't have the best lighting for pictures though.

I wonder if I am too late??  I would love to join.  Smiley  Maybe that Odessa hat for me?  Is it complicated?

Odessa is very easy.  It took me only 3 days to knit.  I don't know your skill level, but you can use that fact as sort of a guide.

I had a last minute change of plans. Mostly prompted by hubby dipping into my yarn stash without telling me!! RRRAAAAAARRRR.
Yesterday I cast on for the Very Tall socks from Knitty. They are worsted weight, and fairly straight forward but i think the length will make the challenging enough. I got through 2 stripes late last night after scrambling for a pattern for yarn in my stash that would be suitable for this. Honey was informed that although I love that he takes treats to work for the kids to knit, he's GOT to ASK FIRST!!!!

Chuck Norris does not knit. He bangs the table, and the shockwaves force the yarn to create clothing.

funny love

I'm behind schedule.  GAH!

A rough estimate dictates that I need to complete a minimum of 3 inches of knitting per day to complete in time.  Remember, I am making socks for size 12 feet on size 1 needles.  What was I thinking?!

Anyway, I should have 6 inches done by the end of today.  So far I have 2.5.  GAH! 

Must get of Craftster and Knit!

Making an effort to use proper English and not 'net slang makes me much more willing to respond to your post.

I'm going to try and knit at least three projects instead of just one.  I'm about halfway done with number one, the spiderweb caplet from SnBN.

I'm back!  Older, wiser, and better at crafting Smiley.

 Grin  I've got 6 inches of my Tank Girl knit.   It's turning out really nicely.   I figured that I need to have the front half done by this Friday.   That'll give me another 8 days to knit up the back half and one day for finishing.
