|I suck, ok? I know I do. Cristi suggests we race to see who finishes Tomato first, and I am crazy enough to put sock yarn on the line. So today, she posts this. Yeah, she's done. Want to know how "close" it was? This is where I am:|
(That's Lion Cotton Ease in "Popsical Blue" and "Bubble Gum", by the way)
So, clearly I was delusional on this one. Want to know where I was when she sent a text message to my phone last night asking if she should block it before posting her victory? Right below the colorwork. I had NO chance. This thing just moved ridiculously slow. I think I might have shot myself in the foot from the very beginning, though. Looking at Cristi's, I'm thinking this should have ben done with negative ease, and I probably should have done the next size down. That would have given me a few less stitches to do. :) I actually considered ripping back on this one, but I just can't bear to. I've got ridiculous amounts of Cotton-Ease, so I can always do the smaller size on another one if I choose to.
Oh well, if I had to lose to someone, I can honestly say I'm very ok with it being my dear darling Turtlegirl. I'll be happy to present her with her prize sock yarn at MDS&W next weekend (Woohoo!)
I've got an inch or so to go in the "waist" area before I start the increases, and then the bottom of the body and the ribbing before I do the neckline and the sleeves. I've got an idea I think I'm going to play with on that, so it won't be identical to the pattern, but when is ANYTHING I knit?
