The one with the boring sweater, the waiting and the RIP

I'm moving back to Perth next week, so I have been hesitant to order new yarn and start new projects. Instead, I've been trying to use this time to finish up loose ends, clear out those spinning bobbins, and pick up any hibernating projects I currently have.

At the moment, I'm working on Thermal, which has been languishing for what feels like an eternity. I've only got the sleeves and finishing left to do on it, but it is very slow going and just plain boring. After two days of knitting, I've got perhaps a third of a sleeve which is putting another damper on the whole project.. *sigh*. Just keep plugging away I guess?

And how is CPH going? Well, the weather hasn't been all too friendly lately so CPH is still blocking but is fairly dry to touch so I'm hoping another two days and she'll be all done.

And completely off topic, but I was rather shocked to hear about Michael Jackson's death this morning. So, in his memory and for nostalgia's sake, I've been listening to his tracks all day(well, his number ones anyway).

Regardless of his personal life and scandals, I thought he was a fantastic musician who did so much for the music industry. RIP.

I completely agree with the task of knitting thermal- I swear, it's like a knitting black hole. but the file product is SO worth it!! Your CPH is looking pretty.
And most definitely- sad news and MJ.

Good luck with the move! It may seem like it's not moving, but if you stick with it, before you know it, you'll be done.

I'm so sad about Michael! :(((((

Oooh, pretty. I love the clarity of the first picture. How do you get it to be blurry in the background, but clear in the front?

Can't wait to see the final FO pics for your CPH!

Courage! Thermal is worth it! I'm knitting my second Thermal (yes, I'm crazy!!!) but the first one I knit is too small. I'll have to give it away... CPH looks good as well! And finally, I am very sad about Michael Jackson too. To me, it feels like it cannot be true. I really like and will continue to like his great music!!!
