Now that you're all caught up on what I've been doing that ISN'T knitting . . . here's what is.
The Rose of England proceeds apace. It's past where it was before I discovered my horrible error of the other day, even. Not that you can really tell. It's still a giant white blob. But I have reached the final chart for the smaller size. So "soon" (read: in another 30 rows) I'll have to decide whether I'll stop there or continue. It pretty much depends on how much yarn I will have used, because the KAL requires a minimum of 1000 yards. Heaven knows I have more than enough on the cone.
I haven't worked on them much since starting the Rose of England, but I do have non-blogged progress on my Animal Crackers socks to report--I'm past the heel turn. See? Still a nicely written pattern that's turning out a nice project.
Mostly this week I've been devoted to the piece I'm designing for Heather--everything but the very last finishing is in place, conceptually, so I've been trying to push through version one so I can take version two with me on vacation next week. (More about that later.) So really I'm going to be terrifically boring for the duration. Sorry.
