To wit, in the last month, I have knit:
(a) almost to the end of one Smart Capitals sock
(b) a body and half a sleeve of an hourglass pullover (stockinette country is your friend)
(c) one row of Icarus.
And for this great accomplishment, Glenna has gifted me with a Rockin' Girl Blogger award! Well shucks. Now I'll have to do things like get out the Rockin'-o-Meter to check each post for Rockin'-ness and make sure I don't fall behind. Thanks man!
Sure, the rest of the world could have taken that same month and done a Mystery Stole or a whole Icarus or three Bohuses (Bohi?), but over here, we go for the meditative approach. Really savour every stitch. Or at least that's the official story. Really, I'm just beginning the long slow

And just to make this post extra incestuous, I have to give a shout-out since G's finally posted the pattern for the Brennan cardi. It looks super. Good luck to everyone who wants to give it a try. Stay strong through the diagonal rib and all that seaming. It's a dream when it's done.
