End of a Trend

I just noticed that my last ten posts or so have all been in the Personal category. It’s not that I’m not knitting, it’s just that I’m not making much progress on anything. All my efforts of the past week have been on the sakiori, and it’s just mind-numbingly slow. I’m doing what feels like acres of seed stitch, even though it’s only going to end up being inch-thick border work. I could put in daily updates, but that would be rather stultifying.

But I’m almost done with it, so I should have a photo of the finished product soon. And then I’ll stop with all these non-knitting posts and get back to the raw thrills of my other projects that are on the back burner. Burners. Whatever.

In the meantime, I am way overdue with this: I got up early this morning and did some cutting on the massive (>400 megabyte) audio file from my recital a few months back. I extracted the least embarassing piece that I played and have uploaded it here for your enjoyment.

I’ll have to record that piece again one of these days and put it up for comparison. I’ve really gotten a lot better since then, I swear.

    Well, you write about personal stuff, I write about my never ending move. We are knitters, not knitting machines. We’ll get back to the knitting soon enough.

    I love reading about what kinds of bloggers are as obsessive about knitting as I am. I love the daily stuff. Besides, how boring would it be to read day1 knit 2 row, day 2 knit the cuff.

    Get real.

    Don’t have a photo on my blog yet, but I did put up a scan of the armhole steek in my Stained Glass Vest. It shows the colors, pattern AND the short rows that were built within the steek – you can see the extra 1/2 pattern growing out of the steek and into the front. I think it looks neat.
