Keep On Keepin' On

I'm almost through the waist decreases on Picovoli. I'm still loving the pattern. I thought I'd put up a progress photo at this point. The strange thing is, since the Knitting Olympics, I've been knitting mostly one pattern at a time, which is weird for me. I'm usually a 5- or 6-things-on-the-needles person. Besides my scarf, which really, I'll finish sometime, I've been starting and finishing one sweater, and then starting a new one. I may break this streak by casting on for the Farmer's Market Bag from Weekend Knitting. Though I do have the SKC knitalong starting Saturday, with two tops to make by mid-May. Hmmm.

Reading: Bloodsucking Fiends by Christopher Moore. This is his vampire one. Who doesn't need a little Moore in their world? Try him, you'll like him.

Writing: Soldiering on with chapter 4.

Cooking: Nothing new and exciting.

That looks so nice -- the detailing on the neck and sleeves is really lovely. Isn't it a great pattern?

By the way, I have had the exact same experience as you in terms of being mostly a one-thing-at-a-time knitter since the Olympics. Weird!

It's coming along really well.

I'm more focused since the Olympics too. Strange.

It's looking lovely.

And you know, I still have lots of UFOs but I'm soldiering on on one thing. Maybe it's the post-Olympics thing, maybe I'm just tired of not finishing things. I'm actually not that interested in doing more than one thing at a time. Weird.

Oh, I forgot. I love love love Christopher Moore.

Thanks, you guys! I wish I could take more credit for Picovoli, but it's all about that awesome pattern.

I think it's funny that the Olympics gave so many of us more focus. Sounds like there's a psychology paper in there somewhere...

Isn't he awesome, stafaneener? I always lend Christopher Moore to people looking for something new to read.

Looking great. It's really a pretty color you chose, a really nice blue. I don't know how to be a one project girl, I get itchy fingers to quickly.

CHAPTER FOUR IS DUE TOMORROW! On my desk by five o'clock. You lose 10 points for every day it's late. :)

I have a bunch of wips, but last week I started working on one at a time, trying to finish them off. After I finish my current wips I'm going to do one thing at a time. It seems much more efficient.

I love the Knit Picks you're using for Picovoli. I really want to start mine, but I must finish things first!

I think I may have read a Moore book, can't remember.
