Well, since now I know you're still out there and all, I don't want to create any unrealistic expectations by writing two blog posts in two days (whaddup wid dat?!), but you do know what they say about developing (or redeveloping) habits, yes? Fill me in, because I don't really know what they say. But it's got to be something about doing it -- whatever the "it" is -- more than a few times in a row.
So! I forgot to load another cute photo of The Jefferies Man yesterday. I figure I should put it up here before I lose it. I don't mean the metaphorical "losing it," though you know I am still always at risk of that -- but I mean misplacing or deleting the photo by accident.
It's a little bit oddly exposed -- too dark and yet too washed out all at once -- but still, I think it's a quite adorable pose. Mr. Jefferies, Esquire, so calm and contented in his new sweater.
And since I'm testing the knitting waters and all, and yet trying to limit the amount I do, next up -- well, I'm going to try to get two of my almost-finished sweaters finished. MY sweaters -- as in, sweaters for ME. There are two that are dangerously close to being finished. They DO come with the aforementioned issues, such as, "What needle size was I using?" and "Where did I leave off in the pattern?" As such, they are more daunting than, "Oh yes, just crochet the edging and put on the buttons and we're good."
So maybe before I do that, I might start to work on this dapper little number:
I bought the kit for this one at Rhinebeck, I think two years ago. Mine is going to be turquoise and charcoal grey Alpaca. Quite fancy! It's probably time I got down to knitting that thing, huh? We won't discuss the sock yarn I bought at my very FIRST trip to Rhinebeck 10 years ago. And the Everest worth of yarn I have bought and not knitted up since. Irrelevant, your Honor!
