I realize that I have been conspicuously absent lately. In fact, I’ve probably been posting more about how I’m not here than about things that are actually important.

Like knitting.

I have finished the first sleeve of the Venezia Pullover, and have started the second. The malabrigo laceweight scarf is also finished, although it has not been washed or blocked yet. (Yeah, you try it in a dorm room.)

I have started a mitten to replace the scarf as a throw-about project, but I’d rather not talk about my sock progress at the moment. Move along.

(Anyway, Emily the Yarn Duck has already been on my case about that one.)

Tonight is the invited dress rehearsal of The Women, at the Kalamazoo Civic theatre. Tomorrow is the opening performance. This means that instead of taking the time to post lately, I have been scuffling around in a basement in 2″ heels (ick) looking like a 30s woman. I never quite realize how funny that is until I refer to it objectively…

I’ll try to put some pictures up tonight or tomorrow, in between finishing everything for my classes and hiding my painted fingernails from the masses.*

They’re bright red. It is humiliating.

Go knit something, because I can’t!!

*I meant pictures of the knitting, but upon The Sneak’s request I’ll try for some 30s pictures too.
