Menagerie Marches OnFirst, let me say that there will finally be update pictures tomorrow. ;) Instead of my usual 2 nights a week home, thanks to the snow, all my activities have been cancelled, and I've had lots of knitting time! I'm trying to be good and power through Menagerie, and mostly it's working. I'm over halfway done- I'm almost done with the hippo, and I wove in all the ends of the elephant. So far, between the turtle and the elephant, there have been 52 + 72 = 124 ends!!! There will easily be as many ends on the giraffe. ICK!!! But at least I like the way it looks. I hope my cousin will too! :)
In a few weeks, I'll buy the yarn for either Gustava (from Stranded) or Faroe (from AS's fisherman sweaters). I really like both designs, and I can't decide which to do next. I'm leaning towards Gustava since it is a cardigan, and will be more practical as the weather warms up...there are so many projects that I want to knit!!
Due to the weather, I have been driving in to work this week- so not much progress on Ocean. I have been getting a little done working out, and hope to get more done today. Next week I should be back on the bus, knitting away! I'm trying to decide if I should do the right front of the cardigan next, or the sleeves... I guess the other side of the cardigan, since it will be so similar to the other side and the back. I do need to figure out where to put the button holes, though. And this weekend I need to see if I can find some suitable buttons. Hopefully I'll be able to find something nice! ;)
The Latin phrase for today:
gratia gratiam parit
"kindness produces kindness"
