I want to... I really do

Gah. I haven't knitted in three days now because instead of indulging in my project o'the moment, I have been going through literally reams of paper at night. Yup, work stuff. The end of the year coincides with a lot of things at work... add in a phlegmy cough and you've got me in a nutshell. I nearly passed out in the shower this morning - and I'm not entirely sure why. I was coughing a little bit, but I don't think it was enough to cut off my air supply long enough for me to faint. So at 6:15 this morning I was sitting soaking wet in my shower stall drinking apple juice while Andrew hovered over me.

And no, Mom - I'm not pregnant.

Anyway, Battlestar Gallactica is back on tonight (Apollo!) so I will definitely be knitting. I'm determined to get that last Christmas present finished this weekend. Maybe I will even pick up Andrew's cable knit sweater before Christmas. Here's a question for you all - there is a smidgen of a chance I won't have enough wool for his sweater. He is very long bodied (for someone 6'1" he only has a 32" inseam) so I added some extra length in the front and back. I bought this wool a year ago and I am fairly certain I won't be able to match dye lots. What would you do? I'm thinking of getting the same colour and doing the sleeves in the same colour - but perhaps a different dye lot. Do you think that would be weird?

How come you're NOT pregnant????? It won't look weird if there is only 1 or 2 shades different in colour AND if it is either a dropped shoulder or set in sleeve.

Happy knitting! Hurry, or you'll begin to suffer from withdrawal!

I heard that if that happens with different dye lots, the best way to deal with it is alternate rows. One row one dye lot, one row the other... but if you are almost done, you may not be able to do that..

There's my 2 cents!

I've always thought Andrew would look fetching in a knit halter top.
