This time of year, especially in the Midwest, can be deadly boring. It is just cold enough to want to hide inside, but ye dreaded Cabin Fever lives there! Avoidance Techniques? Hmm. Just how much TV can a person stomach? How much DVD repeats, music, board games, bored games, oh that’s it! I was so bored the last few days, even with a sniveling cold, I broke down and did housework! [Anybody got some sure fire tricks they use to bust their own Cabin Crazies?]

Now that the floor is clean, I pulled out the Blocking Rug and got to it.

I’m going to blame the Fuel I’ve been ingesting (Girl Scout Cookies: Samoas & Do-Si-Dos spin me baby) to explain the fact that I’m actually making progress on my Twist sweater. Both Fronts and Sleeves are now done and blocking. Happiness reigns.

If I can, I like to incrementally block then finish as I go – now I can seam the Sleeves and when I finish the Hood (which needs joined Fronts & Backs) I will be way ahead of the game.

I’m going to cast-on for the Back next. I’ve added the cable pattern up the Sleeves and will also have it on the Back. Other Mods: lengthened the bottom ribbing on all pieces a bit.

It’s 26 degrees and sunny WOhoo!
