For now, I leave you with a picture of my earthworm. I made it this summer but never posted pictures. It reminds me of how I would like to get back to knitting these little critters. They're so fun and quick.

Alright, so I've been working on my Tangled Yoke Cardigan for what seems like months. I believe I started back in August (?) BUT I've frogged the whole thing twice because of my carelessness. Not to worry, I've got this now. On the first round, I continued my ribbing on the body too far up where I was supposed to work in stockinette stitch so instead of trying to rip to a certain point, I decided to just frog it. Let's face it, I might stab anyone that tried to get near me while trying to count the stitches in garter rib and run a safety line. I figured I'd save myself further headaches of losing my temper. The second time around, I did it right! Yeah, it's a darn shame the sweater was enormous on me. Ugh!! Why did I even thing I was that size? Who knows?! I had Paul measure me so that I would have a more accurate idea of my size but I just ended up just measuring my favorite cardigan. I think we're good now. The body seems just a couple of inches short but I think it'll come out in the blocking. God, I hope so! Hehehe. So, you want a picture of this famous (and first sweater for me) cardigan, eh? Sorry. I have not taken any pictures of it yet. I know. I know. Bad blogger, Zen! It's coming though. I'm really almost finished. I have the body and sleeves completed and they are now joined. Just another inch and I begin on the cables on the yoke. I can't wait because it's getting cold in West Virginia and I'd like to wear it to New York City for my birthday in December.
