I'm halfway done with the knitting portion of my dad's Christmas present! Hooray! I still haven't determined whether or not he secretly reads my blog--I'm thinking not, because I think he would have 'fessed up, but asking him would probably tip my hand, and the next thing you know, he'd be all over it. So, to sum up: no pictures, still. There are some on Ravelry, for the Ravelry-able. I'm willing to e-mail pictures to the non-Ravelry-able, on request.
The thing is... I'm halfway done because I spent all day knitting yesterday. I called in sick to work, and again today--I think I've got the flu. If not The Flu, it's definitely something flu-like. So I've been just sitting on the couch, keeping hydrated and trying not to move too much. This is what happens when you start a retail job during flu season.
A four-day weekend would be much more fun if it didn't involve illness.
