Getting closer and closer and closer and.................

I'm so close I can feel it. I have that twitchy anxious can't sit still feeling, all for a sweater. This project has not been hard, just full of mistakes on my part. I've made mismatched cuffs with the front and back and had to frog one of them completely back to start again. I've had to change the length and then question my decision. I've gotten tired of cables and had to take a break and now, there's difficulty lining up the collar. But I'm ALMOST FINISHED! I can feel the end in sight. It's even blocked and ready to sew up as soon as I can figure out this darned neck. I feel neck nightmares in the near future. No one likes neck nightmares, it's too close to the finish line.

In more happier news, today was the first outside ride of the season for Mr. Romance and myself. I wonder if the sight of me sucking wind and dragging my out of shape butt up a hill increases the romance factor or decreases it? I'll have to ask............I'm pretty sure my preoccupation with this sweater is a romance killer - he doesn't respond to my rantings about it anymore. Oops

I will be happy when it is finished, but that puts pressure back on me to live up to my name. But then again, when it's finished you can get back to your nightly CSI fix (I'll let you into a secret, if you just watch the last 3 minutes you can see who dunnit).

You inspire me, Kara! And I understand about those "neck nightmares"! I often have difficulty putting the "pieces" together after finishing a project - just ask your mother! I love your blog since we have lots of things in common!
