I’m almost ready to start Cherie Amour, so I’ve decided the world needs a Cherie Amour KAL. So, I started one. If you’re thinking of knitting Cherie Amour, or you’ve already started, please join! It’s a no-pressure, non-deadline sort of knitalong, so don’t feel like you have to be at any specific point in your knitting to join.

Aside from that, I haven’t gotten too much knitting done. I did get some done on Friday, as I took my lunch break at a temporary park set up in a parking spot outside my office. They had mini golf!

I then proceeded to crash early on Friday, waking up at my desk after doing a faceplant into a not-so thrilling chapter on using CSS (I caved and bought a better book that lays things out in a way that makes sense to me after that.) and creating drop-down menus.

Saturday was the worst Saturday in the history of Saturdays, and I’m not going to speak of it. Suffice to say, I was afraid to pick up my knitting, for fear I’d accidentally strangle myself or one of the cats, or perhaps take an eye out with a needle.

Today was WTF madness. I finished two WTF cross stitch pieces for co-workers, while watching Remember the Titans for probably, oh, the 5th or 6th time because I cannot turn that movie off, and the season premiere of Cold Case (Please! Bring back the messy up-do for Lilly…) which was rather anti-climactic given the season finale cliff hanger.

I still need to make at least one more, probably more. I also finished the chart for the first customized design that I’m working on. Lots of cross stitch. It’s fun, though, and I’m getting faster. Soon I’ll be able to do the WTF design in my sleep.
