what am I doing here?

in which susan proceeds to get caffienated and knit all day. if only I could get paid to drink coffee and knit... that would so be the shiz-knit.

switchity swatch swatch

real quick - anyone else watch lost last night?? two things: OMG!! and WTF?! this concludes my commentary in this section.

so, yes, I did finish knitting the hat the other night, but I haven't woven in the ends or washed and blocked yet. it's a bit floppier than I'd wanted it to be, but, seriously, people, I had thought about going down a needle size, but the annoyingness of the yarn plus all the p4togs and the k4tog tbls were a hassle enough as it is. anyway, it's still pretty cute and hopefully the stitches will behave a bit prettier after a nice relaxing bath. here's a mini-preview (where "mini" means "bad picture where model is attempting to capture and eat camera"):
I know - this was supposed to be just a momentary distraction from more pressing projects, but, after mentioning the blue sky the other day, I couldn't fight the desire to bust out the pattern and do some preliminary swatching. plus, I want a cute cotton sweater to wear on summer nights, y'know? I also have been reminded that I need a ball winder - and maybe a swift that isn't made by little tykes.
I keep telling myself that I am not abandoning said "pressing projects"... but the shawl was relocated last night. it used to live on the couch (lately, in a sad little pile under a throw), but it's been moved to the shopping bag in the corner which contains all the bits and pieces of the sweater which has no end, butterfly and other little knitting odds and ends. is that where projects go to die? or is it just a vacation? let's hope it's the latter...

    The hat looks adorable, but no where near as adorable as the model!

    What? Little tykes makes a pink and purple ride-on swift? Hmmm- maybe I need one of those. Think I could ride it to go grocery shopping and wind yarn at the same time?

    And on Lost- I am more of the WTF opinion rather than the OMG, at least on the season finale! top
