I thought I had somehow managed to change my password and was locked out of the blog for the last few days.
Nooooooo... Apparently, even though I signed up for the new Google blogger, my account was hit by the change over. It took me a week to figure this out!!! Like I said, I am new to this blogging stuff… but DUH!

Now that I’m back, I have what might not look like much, but let me tell you, this is much progress on Starlight. Check this out:

Here's a close-up

I know you can’t tell, but I’m soon to start the waist shaping. Sami says she’s at the sleeve attaching stage. I can’t wait to see it.

I love Starlight...but I don’t think I’ll be monogamous. It is going to take a while, and knowing my “get something finished” mentality, I suspect I’ll need a few quick knits to play with as I go. I’m thinking some Christmas ornaments a la Two Old Bags.

I know, I know… I am just impressing you to no end with my planning… The fact that I can finish one in a half hour is part of the attraction. Maybe I’ll do a few booga bags with these yarns:

I've finished the body of the Guild Sampler Knit Along Vest. But I'll wait until the next meeting to add the bottom band and do the finishing.

Teenage son has a “gig” tomorrow night. The bassist for the band has “exotic” hives and there was some fear they wouldn’t be able to play, but he’s a trooper. So The Couch Jumpers will try to beat out 11 other bands tomorrow night. Maybe exotic hives will give them the edge.

You HAVE been busy! Vest is looking good. What stitch are you using?

The vest is using only garter stitch.
