Totally '80s

Finally, I knitted. I made it to Spiders on Friday and finished up one Hourglass sleeve. Check it out…



I started number two yesterday and realized if I stopped right now I’d have a one armed sweater and a matching wrist cuff. Rock on!

Fortunately, I have a special new motivation to complete this sweater in a hurry. I was too cheap to buy Last Minute Knitted Gifts, so I checked it out of the library about a week ago (before that, I was just sort of winging it). It’s due back on April 4, and can’t be renewed because someone else is waiting for it. I can’t possibly keep it past the due date – that would likely do irreparable harm to my knitting karma. Soooo, I’m using the due date as a target date for completion of the sweater.

Hmmm...maybe your motivation will be my motivation. Right now we're tied on our Hourglasses--I can't let you win!

It's a petty motivation, maybe--but hey, whatever works :)

At least it's mindless knitting, so you can watch tv or talk to your husband... I'm sure you'll make your deadline (you wouldn't want to *gasp* photocopy the pattern, right?).

that's a great way to impose a deadline, and you're saving money. i love that color! how's school going?

WOW you are so good!! The sweater is coming along beautifully. Can't wait to see it. Sorry I missed you on Friday... how is school?

Hi. Sorry I didn't actually introduce myself on Friday (even though I fondled your knitting). :) Glad I found your blog, though. Hourglass is looking great. I know you can make that deadline - you got a lot of sleeve done even in the short time I was there.

Would it be bad knitting karma to make a copy of the pattern if it's not ready by the 4th?
I think I just volunteered to be your enabler :)
