The forced shutdown at work has meant vacation time for me this past week, which accounts for my lack of blogging. I return to the office on Thursday. But until then I have plenty of knitting time! I have completed the back of the Twist sweater, as well as the front of the tank. I am about halfway through the back of the tank now. I can probably finish it tomorrow. That is, if I can pull myself away from my current book, The Minotaur Takes a Cigarette Break, or don't go see another movie. I've seen both the Leonardo DiCaprio movies, The Two Towers, and Chicago. It's been especially rainy here lately...perfect weather for knitting, reading, and going to the cinema. Happy New Year everyone!
