Last Progress Photo for a While - It's Back To Werk For TheQueen

Yesterday was a reprieve day - since I had to take ThePrince to the eye doctor in Richmond. Of course, he drove over (I do the night driving home) so I had some hours of knitting time and there was an hour wait at the dr's so there was More Knitting Time. Enough inches were accomplished to justify a photo so, here you go.

Lawsee. Time was I would consider this dress long enough! 40 years ago.

I'll still be knitting this week, but at a slower pace. Looks to me like there are 7-8 inches to go and then sleeves, edge trim and tidying up the inside. The goal? Finish this in the next 2 weeks.

But today it's back to the office for me, after a physical holiday of almost 2 weeks and a mental holiday of nigh on to 2 months. 2010 was the busiest and most productive year in my entire career. You could tell Jupiter was still on my back. But it wound down in November and I really kicked back. Now I have to try to pull all the threads back together again and then, see just what I can do in 2011.

Today will be assessment day - what's accumulated over the past 2 weeks? what needs to be done? what needs to be cleared up? Tomorrow is Wednesday, and we all know that Wednesday means Story Hour Day. Thursday will be plotting out the future and filling in the nagging Outlook Express calendar on the library computer. Friday will be preparations for Monday. Whew. My real new year will start next week.

Happy Getting Back In Gear Day


  1. Its great, I love it. It looks great on you too, can't wait till its done.

  2. Lookin' great! But all that're a braver woman than I, dear Bess!

  3. It's going to be wonderful! Do you already know how you will accessorize? A nice artsy scarf would really look nice with it, I think :)

  4. Woo hoo! On the downward slope, literally, and it's looking so good! So much incentive to keep knitting, what a shame that work gets in the way. What does all play and no work make one? Oh, that's right, poor and hungry. Off to work, then Bess. Time for knitting later.
