The Mohair Is Winning

Last night I just couldn't bring myself to face the mind-numbing-endless-abyss that is the mohair edging, so I spent a little time with Sitcom Chic:

And the Top Secret project:which is safe to photograph for a while as it is still in "amorphous blob" stage and could be anything--sort of like knitting in general.

I don't want to get distracted from finishing the Lady's Circular Cape after having come this far, but I just couldn't face the mohair again. To put things in perspective, I dug this out:

Many of my friends cross-stitch and they absolutely rave about it--how relaxing it is, how enjoyable it is, etc. I can actually see how it can be relaxing--there is something very soothing about doing little thread x's all over a piece of material. What I don't get is how there are ever finished cross stitch projects. It takes forever. I worked on this thing for at least half an hour and do not even have a square inch to show for my efforts.

Know who was looking pretty good by then?
7 1/2 swoopies now!

Toni is back in control! And talking to mohair.....that's probably not a good sign.....
