Day 6 of events: Still no needle. I managed to work six or seven more rows after these photos were taken at the beginning of Friday, but the cumulative weight of the piece on the too-short needle is threatening an RSI, so I've had to put it aside until I can get proper equipment, which means, at this point, that I'm most likely out of the competition as such. Crap. Will still try to finish the jacket for use this coming spring, anyway. Meanwhile, admire the pocket assembly, which I think came off quite well.



Among the various aches all this knitting has triggered is a nervous tic in my left ear. I can't begin to imagine how this actually works, but it's a very disturbing sensation.

feeling: disappointed disappointed

that is an awesome pocket.

normally i'm not into multicolored things like that, but yours looks really cool. that's very sad about you not getting your needle. :(

It's amazing how well it's been working out so far as I just reach over and grab a new color as the spirit moves me -- in fact the only passage I'm not entirely pleased with is that bit right above the pocket where I tried to work in the colors of the Olympic rings! :) I wish I'd been able to nail my LYS down better about when the needle would come in, since I'd have ordered it online last Thursday if I'd had any idea it would take more than a week, and it would be here by now. Bah. I've just been knitting slower and slower as this thing piles up on the wee 24" connector, I'm two whole days behind schedule now...

That looks fabulous. Here's hoping your needle comes in:)

On the 27th, no doubt. :(
