I present to you:

Fluffy Halter's Back Piece with its Funky Armhole Shaping:

Block me! Block me!

I'm almost sorry this puppy's sleeveless. I love seaming raglan sleeves. They're like big and easy knitter's puzzles. (Yes, I'm easily amused.)

I also worked on the cuffs for the sleeves of my Fluffy Bolero:

Each are about 30 cm of straight 2x2 ribbing. The first one was fun, the second one was ho-hum. And I've still got to knit the bands that go around the entire body edging...we're talking about 120 cm of 2x2 ribbing to go. Sigh. I love knitting this fluffy yarn but all this ribbing on short rows is beginning to have the effects of a valium. It looks like I'll be putting Matrix in the DVD player to do those. A little bit of Keanu on the screen should get me motivated to knit that ribbing. Hee hee!

Doesn't Keanu wear some sort of cool Suss sweater in the Matrix? Awesome knitting, girl! Yer my hero!
Was that a Suss sweater? Very cool. (And he definitely looks hunka in that sweater, even with a shaved head.)
I must say, having a new entry to read every day this week is like finding a little stash of chocolate every day. :-) Enjoy your vacation knitting!
Mmmm....Keanu could get me motivated to do just about anything. I love the color of the Fluffy Halter, very pretty.
Wow ... really posting everyday during vacation! Woo hoo! Very interested in the wrist warmer of the halter ... is it knitted separately then grafted to the sleeve? But I think we'll be able to see it really soon, right? ;)
Sleeves? What sleeves? This halter's sleeveless! (Although I do like a spot of grafting now and then.)
Keanu could motivate me to do 1x1 ribbing for just miles and miles! Yeah, Baybee!!
I am usually just a lurker (no comments) of your blog, but yours was one of the first knitting blogs I ever started to read on a regular basis (I swear I am not trying to make you feel old). I just wanted to say it's nice to have you blogging everyday ( even for a little while). I have missed your regular updates.
Cute! Halter is my fav, and it is fun to have you blogging everyday. Have a good week off!
The Matrix, that is good motivation, why didn't I think of that? Go, Energizer Bunny, go! She just keeps knitting, and knitting, and knitting, and knitting....
So, is Matrix in the player yet? Love your daily posts, Susanne is right about it being like finding chocoalte. How is the holey sweater doing, by the way?
My motivation is Fight Club. Edward Norton and Brad Pitt, mmm... Yay for vacation blogging!
I love all the fluffy stuff! It makes me want to knit up a yummy angora sweater.
Its really nice seeing more of you 'round these parts.
Aw, shucks. You guys are making me blush :-)
So chic this halter and in such a lovely color.
Ah, I like this daily posting... Such pretty fuzzy knits!
Keanu = hot...
Whoa! I go on vacation and I return to all Fluffa, All Fluffy, All the Time? Man, have I gone through a time warp or something?
It's adorable. I can't wait to see the model shots.
I say you gotta take your motivation where you can get it! Oooh la la. The halter looks great and I can't wait to see the finished bolero.
Are you up in fluff? ;-) Vacation is looking good on you! It's nice to see your projects in different colors (BTW, I love the deep berry color!) since mine are all in the same color right now.
Wow! I blinked and you posted! Twice! I'm glad your vacation is going well and providing you with lots of relaxing knitting time. The bolero looks great. Good luck with all the 2x2 ribbing. You maybe on vacation but you're going to have lots to show for it!
wow! Look at you go! mmmm... soft and fluffy yarns! my fav! : D
sounds to me as if Lord of The Rings would be more appropriate...LOL...
I had a blip of excitement this morning when I realized that you were going to be posting every day this week and that meant there was probably something new to read. Love, love, love the color and the yarn of the halter, though I have to say, the pattern? Not so much love for that. You'll look great in it, I think, it's just not my style. That bolero's going to be cute. I don't think I'd have any problem knitting the edging (Mindless-Kintting-R-Us) but sewing it on? Yikes!
I remember school vacation vaguely...except in law school it involved a lot of studying. Now it's "ski week" here so traffic is lighter and I can get home faster to cuddle time with the baby and put him down to bed and bust out my knitting! Love all your fluffy yarn projects of late!
