Baby Got Back

Backs of sweaters to knit, that is. Some folks get marooned on Sleeve Island, I get stuck on the backs.

Finished: Nothing 100% finished since last time, however, I’m going to be having a seaming party soon:

Requiring Finishing:
Tank Girl Tank: All knitted, shoulders bound off together, ends woven in. Just need to run up the side seams and it will be ready to wear. Of course, it seems like it’s going to be kinda heavy, but I’m looking forward to trying it out. Now, if it would only get warm enough up here to wear it . . . .

Bunny Hat: All the pieces are complete—I just need to seam up the ears and stick them on. So. Tooth-achingly. Cute.

On the Needles:
Devan: Two inches done on the back, and a big road trip coming up. I’m expecting great things.

Sock: No change.

Baby Kimono: I have two sleeves, a left front, and a right front completed—just the back to go. Sound like any OTHER project you might have heard of?

In the hoop: (with the dust blown off)
Merry Cox Sailor's Huswif: No change.
Joe and Sally Snow: No change.
Wedding Snowflake Hardanger: Metallic-thread eyelets suck. Just thought you might want to know.
Floral afghan: No change.

Obligatory Cultural References
Reading: I set aside Under the Volcano, as it was making me cranky and keeping me from what I actually WANTED to read, Sarah Vowell’s Assassination Vacation. At last! Something entertaining that doesn’t feel like work to read. And besides, she calls Robert Todd Lincoln “Jinxy McDeath.”
