Tomorrow my friend Sarah (the one who just got engaged woo) is stopping by for the night on her way back to Mass. I’m super excited to see her since it’s been forever. But the apartment is a mess. We’re both ready for a move and frankly we really don’t like our apartment anymore BUT we’re stuck here till the fall. This lack of appreciation for our home translates into a very messy place. To be fair, most of this is my fault sicne I’m not the tidiest of people. But we’re not pointing fingers. Instead we’ve decided to make tonight a cocktails and cleaning night. Cocktails because it’s Friday and cleaning because god knows we need to. (I thought it best to write this post before we begin the evening’s festivities otherwise you might not understand what I write!).

On the knitting front I’ve made significant progress on the Bog Jacket. I’d take a picture but the thing makes little sense when you look at it at the moment. But I can tell you that 1/3 of the top/sleeves are done. I’ve worked out the arm shaping (which I will need to do in reverse on the last 1/3), I’ve started my first color change and I’ve worked out where my shoulder shaping will be. If I work really hard this weekend I might be able to finish the main part of the knitting. Once that’s done I have to graft all the grafting bits so it turns into an actual jacket. After that I can trim it in i-cord, sew-in a zip and call this one done. I’m sure this makes no sense to anyone who hasn’t knit this pattern but I promise it’s really simple and hopefully it will be a success.

Now what about this Hussey? Well a co-worker sent me the following picture today and it made me laugh so I thought I’d share it with you. Unfortunately, I don’t know who took this photo so I can’t give anyone credit so I apologize now for being a bad person but hopefully the copyright gods will forgive me.

If you ever need to have a shotgun wedding you know where to go. It’s one stop shop!

Letting the cleaning commence.
