I'm wearing my most recent new sweater today, it being finally, almost cold enough for sweaters since I finished it.

That's not strictly true. This summer I worked in a film and media archive doing some cataloging and digitization stuff, and it I damn near froze my ass off. It was 90 outside, and I walked out of the house wearing sweaters sometimes.

Anyway, so I'm wearing one of my sweaters and I quite like it. I'm not sure that it's one of those perfect sweaters that I'll live in day in and day out, but I think I do like it a good piece. Shetland is such amazing yarn.

Sorry, no pictures.

In red sweater news, I've picked up the stitches around the armhole for the second sleeve (!) and I'm just knitting the very end of the ribbing on the first sleeve. It's good stuff. It's also all I want to work on now, and I have emails to read, writing to revise, and a research project with a prof to work on this afternoon. Sigh.

I also wrote a paper last night/this morning that I feel is... not as good as what I could have done, it feels too much like the kind of stuff I was doing a year ago, and while I think it was good for me to get in touch with that again, as it serves as a good foundation for the work I want to do in the future, at the same time... Ugg.
