Unfortunately it's not going to happen this week. I leave tomorrow for New Mexico for my emergency weekend trip. I will be seeing my family and will hopefully get to see my grandmother for what will most likely be one last time. Things have declined pretty quickly with her health.
Does knitting relax you in stressful situations? It can go either way for me. Sometimes during times of stress in my life I knit like a maniac. Often socks are my knit of choice then. There's something about the extra small needles and tight stitches that mirrors how my body feels when I'm stressed, all tight and pent up. Sometimes however, I just don't feel like knitting at all when I'm stressed, and that's really been the case for me this week.
So expect a post from me next week. From the thread in the Flickr group, I know I will definitely be discussing the collar. I'll also touch on a couple of different ways to attach the shoulders. If there's anything specific you'd like me to cover, please let me know in the comments! Sorry I've gotten a little behind with this part. :)
