A step forward, a step back, then forward again

September 27, 2008

Oh, it’s almost that time of the year again. It’s Halloween season, by which I mean a – longer hours at work, and b – no more Sundays off (at least until November).

Oh too bad, right? I guess it’s NOT that bad. After all, this is only for a month.

So that’s that. And here’s my knitting progress (or de-progress): Slipped Hours pullover for Cyndi.

I got pretty far initially, knitting straight up from skein to skein. Then it got me worried about color variegation. So I started to alternate skeins – and it was such an obvious change that I frogged it down to hem and started back up.

And I’m now finally back to where I started. Honestly, this is the slowest knitting project for me, EVER (aside from afghans that is).

So that’s what I’ve been working on the entire time. For like almost a month now.

And… just because I can – here are my new pair of fancy new blue shoes (though it’s really dark navy, so on the pictures they look rather black).

Yes, they’re Doc Marten’s. Yes, they’re Mary Janes. Yes, they’re really blue, not black.

(… and those socks are my own design. Pattern coming soonish – like, mid November 2008. Consider yourself warned.)
