......I might just make it?

The stubborn gene kicked in thankfully today and so I knit, knit, knit... and I'm down to ~10 repeats left for tomorrow. The only thing is that I'm also to go shopping with the female sibling unit tomorrow night. >_< I'll have to make sure to keep my act together tomorrow. 10 repeats may not sound like much, but each repeat takes about 1/2 hour so it's still ~5 hours of knitting. ......That means I did ~9 hours today?!? Yikes! (I've been knitting just about every spare moment I've had). Anyhow, left to do tomorrow:

- 10 more repeats >_<
- bind off
- remove 1 lifeline (it's been pulling itself out slowly as I've been doing the last clue)
- weave in 1 start thread
- block (where??)
- photo :P

I managed to transfer the remaining live stitches to a DPN rather than continue using the original circular as it's much too long now and keeps whipping around and hitting things. Hopefully the change of needle won't slow me down too much since it is "stickier" than the metal circular I ended up using.

I'm not sure if it's a good thing or rather sad, but during these olympics, I've managed to "watch":

- A&E version of Pride and Prejudice - twice!
- all but 2 Detective Conan movies
- Kyo Kara Maoh Vol 1-5 - twice
- Full Metal Alchemist Vol 1-10(? will probably watch the last 3 DVDs tomorrow)
- Blood+ Vol 1 & 2
- Trinity Blood Vol 1

Mystery Shawl 3 clue 2 apparently was off to a slow start today as the group leader thought today was Thursday and not Friday. ^^; Hopefully I'll be able to start that and get caught up soon. ^^; Definitely looking forward to tomorrow night though. I think I'm finally going to make the mocha pots de creme. ^___^
