I'm not a complete moron this week!

last week, i was acting a complete moron. i couldn't do anything right.
i read my pattern wrong....
11 1/2 inches and then start the shaping!
sounds good to me.
i'm almost there.
1/4 inch left.

but this morning, i pulled out my pattern.
and i read it. smart move # 1.
with my glasses on. smart move #2.

and there, before my eyes not an 11, but a 14.
14 1/2 inches!
oh no, not 1/2 inch to go. 3 1/2 inches.
i was so ready to start shaping.
i'm tired of these HUGE circles with no progress!

but now, today, there was progress.
i had 2 classes cancel on me and i finished all my typing. and then i knit for almost my entire lunch hour.
that makes 3 inches today, so far. I intend to finish the last 1/2 inch tonight while watching Gilmore Girls.

and then i'll work on my socks tomorrow. i miss them.

oooooooooooooooh. i almost forgot.

This is Angelica. She arrived on my doorstep yesterday.

Isn't she pretty!!!!
I have vowed not to start anything new until i finish either my jaywalkers or my sweater. so for now Angelica shall sit with my sheep (still without names!) and be my little pet.

happy knitting!
