My plan was for this project to be nearly finished after I returned from Idaho between all the couch-sitting, car-riding, and plane-catching, but I finished surprisingly little of it. Sure, it's hundreds of tiny fingering weight stitches and it's probably too much to expect for them to turn into an over-sized sweater quickly, but a girl can hope, yes?
It has turned out to be the perfect project here at home too, though. John and I frequently argue about Tom Cruise's worth as an actor (I think he's awful and John thinks he's good...or at least okay), so John finally pulled every Tom Cruise movie he owns and we are slowly working through them. They aren't bad movies by any means and I must admit, Tom Cruise isn't the worst actor...but he's definitely not the best either. In any case, I have been working away at this pink beast while we watch movies (and not just Tom Cruise ones--a girl needs a break!) and it has grown surprisingly fast while I'm not thinking about it.
I'm just over halfway to the underarms, where I expect the work to get a bit faster (for no particular reason that I can articulate). My gauge is totally weird at the bottom but is getting more fabulously open and wonderful as I work. Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light is easily the softest yarn I've ever worked with. I can't wait to wear this thing!
Are there certain projects you work on when you watch movies or otherwise sit with an active mind and idle hands? Is stockinette the way to go or maybe you prefer ribbing or some other textured stitch?
