This fuzzy picture shows two sleeves in progress, slightly less than halfway along. See how fluffy the yarn is? Switching to metal needles did make a big difference in knitability, however. The fluffy, squeaky yarn is moving along the needles pretty easily now.
I am way behind if I hope to finish this during the Olympics, however. I've got the rest of the sleeves, the fronts AND the hood still to slog through. Ah, well, it's coming along...
And now for something completely different:
Pretty, no? It's a fitted, lightweight trenchcoat. Bought it as a birthday present to myself after trying it on for fun, on a friend's urging [thanks, Afton!]. It was very inexpensive as coats go, at £20. To be honest, it looks good, but BARELY fits - a little too tight when buttoned. I really, really need to stop derailing my food wagon and say goodbye to the 15 pounds that arrived with winter eating. Looking at this lovely thing is a little incentive to do just that!
