Firefly: Holidays

Quick Update thingy

Got the 2nd AND 3rd motif rounds DONE. Am working on the shaping rounds now. Had to switch to 2 circs, because it was getting a bit tight on just one.

Haven't worked on it ALL day - we bought a new dishwasher (forgot to figure in the installation and haul-off. :sigh:), bought groceries, had lunch, and visited with G'ma. Then it started SNOWING. In TEXAS. Yes, it does snow here...sometimes.

Am headed back to work on the hat again...photos later - maybe tomorrow. OH - not much work on it tomorrow, unless we get iced/snowed in. Gotta haul the kids to Granny's house for a week. So...will be on the road. Stranded knitting =/= car knitting. :sigh: Will work on the Liberty sock, instead. :lol:
Firefly: Big Damn Heros

Accountability...

Here ya go - today's progress on the Chullo:



It would go SO much faster if I didn't have to strand Every. Single. Round - even the solid-color rounds are knit from both ends of the ball. Tedious, yes - but warmer. :shrug: I'm on the shaping rounds now....1 more motif to go. Then I get to knit the earflaps - won't be done *by* tomorrow.....but soon.
