I swatched the Silkroad Aran for Rogue. Yummy. It took a couple of tries to get the needle size right, but here it is, washed and ready to go: I'll start with the sleeves since they're knit flat. I still have to do an in-the-round swatch--I hate doing those, all those ends drive me nuts--I figure I'll do it when I start the body.
I also worked on Craig's vest and I'm 99% sure I won't have enough yarn. I'm taking a page from Alison and just knitting now and worrying later. I can always put a stripe or two at the chest so all is not lost.
I guess I'll be making another deal with myself today: work until lunch then I can start a sleeve as break, and then back to work. It sort of worked yesterday. I worked until lunch, knit a bit and got back to it. But then I cleaned my desk (it really had to be done--stuff kept falling on me) which lead to cleanings some files, which lead to... you can see where this goes. Well the trick is to keep working at self-discipline.
