Still here

I swear I'm still around. I'm even knitting some. I'm apparently seriously slacking with the photos though.

We'll do some picturless updates today. Your imagination will make prettier objects than I can crank off my needles anyway.

I got up to the sleeve cap shaping on one of the sleeves of Rogue using the two-rows-of-old-yarn-and-two-rows-of-new-yarn method but it's definately darker than the body. I noticed I had quite a bit of yarn from my original skein left after finishing (looks like almost half a skein is still left) so I put the dark one onto scrap yarn and cast on for the second sleeve. I worked the inside of the hem in the new yarn (since it get turned under anyway) and am trying to finish up the outside of the sleeve with a single skein. I'm hoping there will be enough but it will certainly be close. I'll have to show it off soon (if I can ever get home before dark so you can actually see the differences in the sleeves).

Ameile is coming along nicely. I get more work done on her than any other project since I've started knitting on my lunch break again. I should be finished with the back this week. Whoo Hoo.

Weekend satchel front is knitted up but I need to do the embroidery. Very fun (I hope). I felted the back, bottom, sides, and handles the other day. Boy do they need a shave! I'm going to have to do a before and after of those bad boys.

Hope all is well out there in blogland. Pictures soon. I promise.

If you want a laugh, go see what I did for pictures today. It's kind of sad.

I'm having issues with color matching on my clapotis too, hope it works out for you.

that's good news to hear about Rogue... b/c if you had issues with yardage, i don't want to think about mine.
can't wait to see progress in person!

Hmm, I wonder where I could hide to knit on my lunch break so I wouldn't have to answer 21 questions?! Looking forward to seeing some pictures of Rogue!!
