Time proves elusive once again

One of my favorite quotes is by John Lithgow.  He said "Time sneaks up on you like a windshield on a bug."

Two whole months zips by in the blink of an eye, and yet I never seem to quite grasp this reality.  Can someone please make people quantum mechanical?  Then it'll be natural for us to be in two states at once. No more having to decide between chores and knitting, walking Moose or relaxing with Tim at home. Yes? Please??

Back on Earth, some knitting updates. I am still, yes STILL! working on Sandy's cardigan. I'm almost done with the second sleeve, and next I need to block and sew the pieces together. A few more weekends...sigh.

My knitting time has been relegated to a few hours on weekends, and I spend a lot of that trying to figure out where I left off.  Not very efficient, and I'm so tired of this project. But the dogmatic finisher in me plows on.  I will do a happy dance the day the cardigan is DONE!

I am also knitting a creature.  Sometimes I want to keep my hands busy, but I need to pay attention to something other than the pattern. So brainless projects like dish towels or creatures come in handy.  I've cast off a dish cloth already.  Wanna see?
Creature needs a name!

Oh, and some pictures of past sweaters.  They were Christmas gifts, and finally I got to upload them.

Mike, my Father-in-Law
Francine, my Mother-in-Law
Lastly, my brother a new baby girl.  Everyone in my family is going nuts over her, and the women have lost control at stores buying every girly outfit ever made. Melanie is a cutie though, and her baby powers are immense.  Behold!

The dryer just buzzed; back to work...
