It's late... go to bed

Either I'm beginning to knit faster or I've learned how to warp the time/space continuum. In only 7 days I've managed to knit 21 inches of the front of Karen's sleeveless summer shell. (You can tell she's out of town, can't you). I've bound off the neck portion and will knit 5 more inches on each side for the straps of the shell.

Based on the recommendations of the guru masters at the Naked Sheep Knit Shop, I submerged the finished back piece in cold water and have lovingly blocked it. I did this in the hopes that the knitting will smooth out some of the wrinkles and bumps that occur naturally while knitting.

So, tomorrow I hope to finish the front and block it tomorrow night. Then hopefully seam it together on Friday. I still have to knit the neck and arm bands (something I've never done before). I'm getting excited to see it finished!

Anytime I stay up past midnight, the cats begin to freak out. They pounce and bat continuously at me or keep bringing me feathers to throw. I think I'll call it a night. Phoebe is yawning (not screaming... but that would make a great scream, wouldn't it!)
