Sooo tired.....

I started my Intro to Design class this week so I get to wake up bright and early every morning. Yay. After class its off to work for the rest of the day. Double Yay. At least I get to listen to the French version of Nancy Sinatra's "These Boots Are Made For Walking" while I'm working. (Eileen's "Ces Bottes sont Faites pour Marcher" for you francophiles)
Amazingly, I completed the back of the bolero, despite the mind numbing twenty-six rows of stockinette. Now I have to figure out how to knit the front. I'm using the armhole decreases from the knit.1 tank in the first issue of that magazine. But first, I have to finish my project for class...meticulously cutting out shapes and organizing them into a pattern. Of course, I had to design one with a bajillion little pieces.

Knitting for Dudes

The man issue of Knitty is up! Have to show the bro. The cloud intarsia for Kumo is adorable.
I've finished the armhole decreases for the back of the bolero. Now is the boring part, twenty-six rows of stockinette. Zzzzzzzzzz......
