we have (a sad excuse for) progress!

the sweater of olympic shame and I have been struggling with one another for a while now. it's boring me to tears, really. and it resents me for the constant barrage of verbal abuse. so I guess we're even. but it's growing! slowly but surely... back and right side are done. just got the left now, and, if all goes well, there may even be sleeve(s) getting started soon. the burning question: will this be finished in time for isa's birthday??
here is one pattern repeat for the reversible rib shawl. it's actually a very easy and fast knit, which is why I can envision this also boring me to death at some point. but it's so soft and pretty... and for me! I did notice, recently, that I spent the first four rows or so forgetting to sl1 at the beginning and end of the even rows. so it looks a little bunchy on the corners. I debated for a few seconds whether or not I should rip back and decided on not. and I subconsciously cut them out of this picture. but, I think I'm going to really love this when it's finished... some day...

and, finally, little butterfly. I made the picture as small as I could, because, really, there isn't even anything to see. remember how I frogged it because I thought it looked too holey? well, since then, I recast on us6s and did one pattern repeat. looks good so far, but kind of small... I'm wondering if it'll block out bigger than I think or if I should (smack self in head) go back to the 7s. ugh. this has been sitting dormant for a long time - as if you couldn't tell. this is by far the most fun knit of the three, but I haven't gotten to the point where I don't have to look at the pattern anymore so it's near impossible to watch, say, lost while attempting to work on it. I mean, hell-O!! did anyone else see this week's episode?? I couldn't do anything except gape at the tv. good god, I'm glad things are getting interesting again. I could launch into a tirade, I mean commentary, about what transpired, but I'll spare you all. I think I was talking about butterfly. unfortunately, this isn't even catepillar yet. it's not even a larvae. it's barely a twinkle in the mama butterfly's eye. *sigh*
