There's been a lot of knitting, I swear!

It's been a while, but I promise you I've been busily knitting away. A couple of new patterns which should- the gods willing- be moving towards completion, rather than away from it (frogging and me, we know each other well).

My train and bus knitting has been the mate for a sock for The Limey that's been sitting, alone in a drawer, since before Christmas.

Next week, we're leaving for San Francisco to celebrate the Lunar New Year (and my birthday!) with my family. I'm promising myself to get the patterns to a state where I don't need to be actively working with them. Then I'll have some time for the Ravelympics project.

The question is: what should it be? I have two choices: 1) start another design that's been dancing in my head or 2) knit myself that Arachne Cardi that I've been promising myself since I handed the sample over.

There's no way I'll be able to finish a new design in the two weeks. I may be able to knit it in two weeks, should everything go well, but since I haven't done any of the groundwork yet, it probably won't happen. Even if I managed to knit it, then there's the real work of writing the pattern up to be done. So, no, I think that's a non-starter. Arachne it is! I actually started balling up the yarn weeks ago, but got distracted with other things.

I'm looking forward to this- I really need a lightweight cardigan.

Mysterious! I love the glimpse of the red sweater. The cable is yummy.
Have a great time in San Francisco and happy birthday!
