I found another one...


Yes, it's another UFO. I was actually looking for my 4.5 mm 16 inch addi circ, which I realised I hadn't seen in ages. Anyway, it was found in the sleeve of this UFO. It's Galway Highland Heather in colour 712, and it's a v neck sweater for The Boy with a cabled rib. I don't remember when I started this, but I think that I bought the yarn around Boxing Day at Tangled Skeins and started it right away. Which means it's at least 6 months since I last saw the 4.5 mm 16 inch circular. Hey, does anybody else do that--needle sizes are always metric for me, but lengths are always Imperial! Today has been pretty productive--The Boy went hiking with his grandparents and His Dad went to the race track (not to race--that's a luxury we can't afford now we only have one salary!). So I stayed home and cleaned all those places in your house that you want people to think you clean every week, but you really don't get around to them anywhere near that often. Oh, and I think I'm going to start working on this particular UFO for a while. I'm getting frustrated with the Little Arrowhead shawl, which is what the Tangled Skeins silk/linen was going to be (oh so briefly, and now twice ripped out).

That's a great find. Love the wool.

A challenge with knitting for children - to finish before they grow out of it.

Metric needle, imperial length. Yup. I think we are the transitional generation for the metric system. My height and weight are imperial. Distances and speeds are metric.

I'm with you on the needle sizing. And the same as Moe for the rest. But here's a nice quirk: Because I grew up near the American border and listened to the "international radio station", I think of outdoor temperatures in both Celsius and Fahrenheit.

(For some stupid reason, I don't know why, I thought I had your blog on my Bloglines. Today I realized, WTF? Where is Alison's blog? DOH! No wonder I missed the poopy news about your hubby.)
