First things first: I believe Winnie has visited Al Mamzar, in Dubai,
and Cairo, in Egypt. I hope she doesn't accidentally set off any of
the curses on the old pyramid.

Now that that's out of the way, I can report in on the knitting front.
I finished my second February Lady Sweater, or, as I've taken to
calling it, the Infernal Sweater. I love this sweater--it looks
beautiful, it's flattering on lots of people--but man oh man is it a
snooze to knit. Sure, that's good in the sense that it's easy. My
knitting group was doing an informal KAL for the sweater this summer,
and I'm the only one who has finished so far. (Granted, I had a two
month vacation this summer, in which I had little to do other than
knit.) I can definitely see why so many other people have gotten
bogged down knitting it--if it weren't for the fact that this second
sweater is a gift for my sister, I probably would've given up. (Or
shoved it in a drawer in my craft room, never to be seen again.)

My next few projects are going to be my handmade item for my partner,
and a Swallowtail Shawl for my grandmother. I also want to get
started on making some tiny ornament sweaters to give to people for
Christmas. If I start early, I won't have to cram them into the wee
hours of Christmas Eve, right?!
