Caught Off Guard...

Was anyone else caught completely off guard after work by daylight savings time? Yes, I changed all the clocks on Sunday, that's not what I'm talking about. What I'm talking about is getting home from work at 4:3o, sitting down at my computer to read my email for a few minutes, and then looking up 15 minutes later, and I was sitting completely in the dark!

I was going to take a few pictures of the Drops 103 Jacket (which is coming along swimmingly), but it was pitch black before I knew it.

I'm still working on the collar, but I've only got an inch or so to go. The collar construction is quite neat, since you increase 2 stitches on each side several times, so you end up with little wing type things on each side of the collar, which get sewn to the top of the double moss stitch on each of the fronts the fronts. Doing it this way makes the collar wrap around and be very turtle-necky.

Here's a little picture of the state of the stash (the bottom bin has FO's and my needle case in it and that's about it (maybe some dishcloth cotton). So, I'm still making good destashing progress.I know it's a bit of a side note, so back to the Drops Jacket ---

Unfortunately, I could not take this project as my lunch project today, because I need to wind another skein of Malabrino (Forest) Worsted to finish it off. I thought that 6 skeins would be plenty, but it turns out that I'll need to to use part of the 7th skein.

So for lunch, I worked on a dishcloth.

Goodbye fish tank---

There has been a bit of a change in our living room too. Our last fish died (don't feel bad, we were waiting for it), so we got rid of the fish tank tonight!

Nice work on the sweater and organizing the stash!

About once every few weeks or so I make mine all neat, and vow to keep it that way. Well, when I start a new project, sometimes I have to dig... And its back to the old ways.
