Its only Monday

6 more rows until I separate for the sleeves. Then its all downhill from there. I'm sure I would have had more done if I had actually knit more this past week, but its not a race right? More correct math was posted on the KAL, and it looks better. Well, until you take into account I washed and dried my swatch. It shrunk up an inch, and in less than a 1/4 in width. That is fine, really. I'm okay with it. Will I put it in the dryer? Final fitting will tell. I will throw caution to the wind and wash my damn knitted garments!

I'm still waiting on my Walker book. Damn resellers. I prefer used books anyway, but I don't prefer used shipping times. I try really hard to get things out the next day, but it seems like I am the only one. Yesterday DH bought 3 new shelves for his office, so I had to take his old one and cram it in my room (just a note, my whole office is hand-me-downs, very unfair). In the end, it will be okay, since the knitting stuff is getting out of hand, but right now I need to buy new tubs for the fabric stash. My current tubs are an inch too high for the shelves. Figures. I'm going to weed through a lot of my fabric too. Maybe get inspired to sew.

Looking forward to getting my SP8 pal. This round should be fun :)

Which book are you ordering? I found Bn.com used sellers to be the worst, so it could be worse, I guess. But sometimes the savings is so worth it.
