Miles to go

“… I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep, And miles to go before I sleep.”  ~ Robert Frost

Funny how some things stick in your mind from high-school lit classes.  Lots of Owl’s RAM is committed to such phrases.

This. Is. Good. News.

The End is near!

That’s right – the test-knit looks like a sweater.  It has two sleeves, two fronts, a back and button bands all properly attached.  Some ends are tied in.  And the collar is on the needles.

(I woke up at 4:43 a.m. with needles in hand and television chattering.  Oops. Not a good start to a work day, still being in yesterday’s clothes.)

Today’s goal:  Finish collar, tying in ends and seaming.  Wet-block tomorrow night. That allows four days to dry before delivery.

It may rain.  This is sorely needed, just not tomorrow.  Between now and that wet-blocking, I am hosting a party.  A party is a much simpler thing to hold outsideMuch simpler.  But the party will happen.  And it will end.  And it involves ice cream, so leftovers are welcome.  And the test-knit will be blocked.  And Owl will then even begin to think about pack self and DB for a brief departure.

And when I come back, the test-knit will be dry and done.

And miles to go before I sleep.

    I’m hoping you’re done now 🙂 and have happily cast on for something new of your own choosing.

    And I can’t wait to, uh, marvel over the finished product 😉
