Neato things on Etsy

Work has really put a crimp in my knitting.  I didn't' get to knit most of last week (or was it the week before?) because of stupid "issues" with our corporate data warehouse.  Why do things always have to break on weekends and at pre-dawn  hours?!  

The warehouse breakdown did reinforce the idea that the solution  is always easy to spot once you know where to look.  And once you find the solution, the "weird" error messages you saw earlier makes perfect sense.    Don't you hate that?  It's like saying "oh, after reading the answer key, of course the test was easy!"

Here is an update on Tim's ha-choo, I mean Hjalte, sweater.

With all that's going on, I manage to have a full knitting day a few weekends ago, and little bits of knitting during the week.  The sweater (technically, the back piece of the sweater) is now 13 inches  long.  I'm kinda not looking forward the idea of having to knit the exact same thing again for the front.  I should have done this in the round!!!  

The WIP from a slight distance reminds me of stone carvings from some Mesopotamian age.  (Edit: I just did a google search, and I think I mean Sumerian age.)

Or...maybe I just need more coffee....
