Some Happy Thoughts of the Knitting Kind

Most of my happy thoughts are few and few in between right now but this glittery combo is singing the most cheerful songs to me.

Dream in Color Starry
Black Parade and Into the Mystic
I did quite a bit of frogging today. Not in anger, but because I realized I just was NOT getting to certain projects. So I feel more accomplished and have less UFOs just sitting around being ignored. Let's face it I have two pretty glittery yarns singing to me, why would I go back to a project that's making me grumble?

These are the projects I have progressed on. (Click the photos for a better look. Right = Laika, Left = Gwen's Scott Pilgrim-esque hat)
I've been taking my knitting and spending my lunch breaks in the library. I've gotten a few strange looks, but I think it's worth it. :) I'm getting more knit time and keeping my sanity.

Now it's time for me to see a certain sweater about a sleeve.

Today's Goal

I am going to finish the ONE SHORT sleeve on this freaking sweater! I mean seriously it's one effing sleeve. AND IT'S A SHORT SLEEVE! I should have a finished sweater right now. I'm beginning to doubt my own sanity due to the fact that this is still not finished. It's one sleeve!! ONE!!!

Single sleeved sweater modeled by Veronica's little monsters.
