Well, having this energy-draining cold didn't stop me from finishing Emma's vest:
I'm really pleased with it. I'm also very happy with the button holes. I used the simple and elegant solution provided by Sally Melville in her Cross-over top in The Purl Stitch. Here's a close up of the button loops done in reverse stockinette:
And, I think the finished product looks mighty nice on Emma:
Finishing this led me to consider my coming attractions list (since I could start something new, according to my three project+sock WIP strategy). I've decided that I won't be doing Ingeborg. I still find the pattern compelling, but fear I wouldn't wear it. And, I really want to knit summer things. Charlotte's Web is calling me, so that is likely the next project. I've also secured yarn for a bunch of other summer projects, but think I'll concentrate on the Faux cardi for a bit. The entrelac is definately stalled, but not stopped. It's no so tempting now that it's getting too warm to wear.
So many decisions, and not enough time. I have some serious thesis-editing to do. Some for coherence, some for length, but all in all, not a ton of time, so that has to be the first priority. Actually feeling better is the first priority...but that's coming.
