Does half a sweater count? :) I know that traditionally one waits until all the pieces are knit before starting to put them together, but, well, I want to wear this, so took advantage of some time last weekend to start putting it together. After all, I can't exactly assemble the sweater on the bus! :)
I also finished the second sleeve (although I have some ends to attend to...):
And I'm making good progress on the right front, including buttonholes:
Last night I did make a little progress on Menagerie- I just started the bottom of the lion.
eventually, it will look like:
But I have been terrible about weaving in the ends- the elephant and the turtle are finished, but the hippo and the bottom of the giraffe are a mess. I will be very glad when this project is finished- what a way to discover that intarsia is really not my thing! Although I will definitely keep this pattern- I think adding ONE animal to a blanket, or pillow cover, or sweater would be really sweet- just not ALL the animals.
Oh, and a few reasons yesterday was a great day- first, it reached 67 degrees... what a lovely hint of spring! (I'll just pretend it isn't right back into the 30s today.) Second, my lovely teapot arrived... just 2 days after I ordered it! Of course I had to celebrate by brewing a lovely pot of darjeeling... If anyone is in the market for a teapot, I definitely suggest checking these folks out. Prompt service, reasonable prices, and free shipping!
And, just in case you're stressed out at work, a moment of kitty zen-
The Latin phrase for today:
sic totidem verbis
"thus in as many words"
