Ta-da! It turns out that all I needed to do to finish my languishing lacy baktus was to take it out of my bag and put it in the knitting pile near the couch. (Well, and knit on it for two more hours.)
In addition to my knitterly productivity, I spent some quality time with the paper I’m revising this weekend, and while it isn’t done yet, it will be ready on time. (Tomorrow.) I turned around in my chair sometime yesterday morning, and this is what I saw:
My sweet dog, waiting patiently for playtime.
I made the Pioneer Woman’s fancy macaroni on Saturday night as a gooey, hearty reward for my steady progress on this paper, and it was divine. (A bit too decadent for the regular rotation, but the perfect treat!)
That dog has the most expressive face I’ve ever seen.
Lacy Baktus looks fantastic on you. I’ve made 2 and will be casting on for # 3 as soon as my Olympic knitting is done.
No gold for me.
hurray for finishing languishing wips! it looks awesome (so does that fancy macaroni)!
Aw, Boh. Such a patient soul!
Your Baktus looks super squishy – is the yarn gauge like a worsted? Yum.
love it! backtus is on my list too…maybe soon, before it’s too hot!
So my baktus is back to zero. But daughter Jessica finished hers yesterday. Maybe “finished” will be contagious!
Way to go! I love the lacy baktus … and will be trying out that awesome looking macaroni soon. Very soon. Good luck with the revisions: you’re almost there! (I’d put Boh to work, personally.)
I really need to make me a baktus, too. Yours is beautiful! Boh truly has the sweetest face ever. I love his ears, too.
Your sweet dog! My cat tries to sleep on my lap when I’m at the computer.
A finished paper and a beautiful lacy Baktus! Now that’s a great way to end the weekend.
Boh’s a cutie, as ever.
