Fine, yes, I'm a bad blogger. My name is Joe and I'm a bad blogger. I need a 12-Step Program for bad bloggers (maybe I should start a blog about bad blogging but I'd probably let that one fall defunct as well. ;-)

Today, I opened the ottoman and a plethora of unfinished projects were still there! It's amazing how that happens. In no specific order...I have the Stephen West shawl, the teddy bear (that one's at least 3 years in the making), the scarf for me (that one's not my fault, I don't think I'm going to have enough yarn so what's the point), 8 pairs of CSM socks that need kitchener stitch, the cowl and a baby blanket.

I've decided to begin with the Stephen West shawl.

I've reached Section 2 of the Column Lace and the k1/p1's into the double yarn-overs. I know it's easy but I always end up losing or gaining a stitch with that, Kerry had to undo several rows for me when we were in Wales and I didn't want to spoil all his hard work. Here's a random shot from Wales since it came up. Build the house right here and I'll meet ya there.


Back to the matter at hand. I don't know why I end up with extra stitches but hell, what's the worst thing that could happen, I can't wear it with the Addis sticking out of it. I never could pull off punk.

So I begin again and miraculously, I left myself excellent notes as to where I should start. Section 2, Row 2!

So I should stop typing and knit, right? Okay, I'm gonna go now. As soon as the commercial starts. Oooh, Star Trek the movie is on. I love that guy. I wonder if I bought apples yesterday. What was a I talking about?

Oh yeah, that guy from Star Trek!
