What’s so close? Ingeborg is.
I’ve finished the second sleeve. I’ve finished all the lace fiddly bits.
However, rather than putting her together last night, I knitted on other things. Why?
One reason is that I don’t have the stinking buttons yet. I ordered them from an online vendor on June 8 and have heard nothing from them, nor has my credit card been charge. I sent off an inquiry last night. I suppose they might have shut the shop for vacation, or the buttons are backordered, but in either case a notice on the website or automated email might be a nice thing.
Because in the back of my head I know Ingeborg won’t really be complete until she has her buttons, I don’t feel compelled to put her together. Poor Ingeborg!
I worked a bit more on Lizzie. Love the yarn and love the colorway!
Reader Questions About Moi
From yesterday’s comments:
Wendy, have you always (well, in the last 18 months since I’ve ‘known’ you) been this svelte? Maybe its just that previous pictures of you were usually in sweaters with lots of ease.
A little of both.
In the past I’ve tended to make oversized sweaters, or sweaters with a boxy shape. But I’ve also lost some weight.
And another one:
Any exercise in your daily or are you just one of the lucky ones?
I exercise as little as I can get away with.
I tell people I work out with free weights three times a week. I do own free weights and I do heft them, but . . . uh . . . not three times a week. I used to. I ought to. I hang my head in shame. But I get a lot of walking in every day. I’ve worn my pedometer on a weekday a couple of times to see how much walking I actually do in a day. Around five miles, believe it or not. Walking from the car to the train, walking from the train to the office, walking around the office. I work in a huge building, and every place I need to go seems always to be at the other end of the building four floors away. And I always take the stairs.
Oh, and the countdown since my last haircut underneath my photo? Just for grins. I’m letting my hair grow out a bit. There are good things about curly hair — it doesn’t look too horrendous while growing out!
A Preview of Coming Attractions!
Koigu. That’s all I’m gonna say right now.
. . . is peeved that today’s entry is not all about her.
