pictures coming soon

I had forgotten how much I HATE piecing. Then I was reminded. I'm piecing the second arm on my williamsro. Its taking and inordinate amount of time. Partly because to spread it out like I need to in order to make sure it lines up correctly I have to spread it out on my bed and kneel at the edge of the bed to sew it together. Now being that I've got a gimp knee and am running around looking like a geriatric patient with my TED hose and my knee brace, I don't tolerate this position for very long (Brittany, get your mind out of the gutter. You too, Mr. Man) So I sew for a few minutes and then I have to get up and knit something else. I've loved working on the sweater. I started it at the beginning of the month and am excited to be on the home stretch. I'm even going to be able to use some of the ceramic buttons that I made one afternoon with Brittany and Mr. Man. Wicked cool, huh? So, I do promise pictures soon. I'd like it to be done or closer to done before posting any pictures. I've also started on some Meida socks from the Favorite Socks book. I'm doing them with Lorna's Laces shepherd sock in Buck's Bar (very lovely colorway) on size 1 needles. I may go blind or insane or both before these get finished. the pattern is pretty and easy to memorize but the tiny stitches are torturous..... at least for a geriatric gimp like me.
I'm also working on some trinity knot cable socks that I'm piecing several different patterns together to create this AND I'm doing it toe-up. Damn, I'm just full of masochism these days.
