madness takes its toll!

because I am slightly mad (it will seem apparent why I'm mad momentarily) I have decided that before I drive off on holiday next Friday, I must have finished the following two items:

1. Patons Vintage Cardigan - this is currently in a bag thinking about what it did wrong! I was knitting away on it last weekend and realised I was running out of allocated yarn for that part. I measaured the front against the back and the front is currently approximately 4 inches too long!!! And it's not even finished yet!!!! So it's going to have to be ripped back, or frogged. I haven't decided yet.

2. Emerald -this is the project thats being worked on. The sleeves are attached, the raglan decreased and being slowly worked and its getting there. Blessed be the chunky yarn though. Unfortunately, due to the stitch count and the weight of the thing, I can only do a few rows at a time before I need to put it down. I have a long way to go on this one too.

So you see, trying to finish two cardigans in various states of completedness by Thursday is just pure madness!

Totals, totals everywhere

Its the beginning of the month, and so I bring forth the monthly total for June;

Used 549g
Bought 0g
Gifted to me 50g
Mileage 0.56miles.

Mileage is fairly erratic, especially when I'm just kniting socks and cardigan bits. Maybe I'll get back up to the high miles when I get a few consecutive days off!
