Tying up loose ends…

first of all, we finally got internet service activated at our new apartment (we moved 9/27), so i’ve been without internet access at home for weeks now, and thus-unable to update ye olde blog!  you’d think i would have at least spent some of that time writing, waiting in anticipation to post my ruminations as soon as the DSL kicked in, but alas, i did not.  i did read some good books (one hundred years of solitude and slaughterhouse five, and still working on resisting state violence with the book group i’m part of), and did a lot of unpacking.

AND – i finally managed to finish the “ballet sweater” (pattern by kris percival) which had been sitting around ready to be sewn up since i finished knitting it in july.

the first seams i did were the shoulders, which i accidentally sewed inside out – so i have these big old backwards seams on each shoulder that look ridiculous, but i almost ended up unraveling a whole sleeve when i tried to take out the seam and re-do it, so i opted to just leave them.  i end up leaving a lot of mistakes in my work because of that! oh well.
