feel like crap....must knit

It has been so hot in Portlandia and it just pulls it out of me since I work outdoors.  Today is my father's 70th b-day and I've not finished his sweater (oh the guilt!!!!)  I just want to sit and knit today (and pay some bills, eat, work out, play some rugby)... anything but move stones in a garden (horticultural stonework is my career at this point).


What I am currently working on.  A stole or sash made of alpaca (really nice but inexpensive stuff) and blue moon mini-mohair loop in "olive garden".  Extremely lux.  You jus' wanna roll around nekkid on it.  It should be perfect with the kilt that I am sewing for myself.  (Brown merino-linen blend). Now I just have to knit the perfect socks and a tam, sew up a snazzy little shirt in an appropriate color (that hides any shedding of the shawl) and I will be perfectly attired for I don't know, Halloween, or any formal affair?  The ballet?  les Sylphide? White bird dance performance? 


Knitting is always better than working... especially out in the heat.

And you know that when you get the whole sash/kilt/tam/socks/shirt ensemble finished, you're going to have to post pictures of you modelling them here, right? Right!? Ok... just wanted to make sure. A rugby player in a kilt? Yes... definitely pictures.
