Must soldier on!

Since I haven't been knitting much this week (just a few rows of Te Rosada here and there), I really need to get on it. I'm going to get back to Aaron's sweater for the weekend. Then I'm going to wind the rest of the Te Rosada yarn and take that with me to Bend next week. I should be able to finish it, since I'll be languishing at the rented apartment thing that has no cable (I'm bringing my antenna this time and hoping I can at least get PBS). Then I will come back and finish Aaron's sweater. After that, I have a couple of May birthday gifts that I'd like to do, the wedding sweater (which I will be swatching and measuring obsessively to make sure it turns out perfectly), and I ordered yarn (Cascade Ecological Wool, which I've been dying to use) and the pattern for Rogue, which I've always liked. I'm planning to do the original pullover, minus the pockets (I've never liked those kangaroo pocket things). Since everyone I love will (hopefully) be at the wedding in December, I'd love to come armed with a lot of hand knits for myself to show off. I really only have one nice thing that I've ever done for myself, and it's a SCARF!! (Oh, and a wrap, but it's too small and I think I'm going to frog it.) I love knitting for other people, but it's time to be a bit selfish.

In other news, I think everyone's getting lap quilts for Christmas this year. More expensive than knitting in a lot of cases (since I mostly knit accessories for gifts that don't require a lot of yarn), but so much faster (and you get something big out of it!)

I just need to give the house a quick cleaning and then I'm knitting for the rest of the evening.
