1) A deviation from the proper or expected course. 2) A departure from the normal or typical.
I am never ahead of the game. Never. I am always a day late or a dollar short. I get a lot done when a deadline looms but all too often that "lot" is not enough. I sometimes feel I live in a chronic state of too little, too late.
Not today ace, not today. I'm still feeling a bit smug and astounded by what we sent off, Priority Mail (as opposed to the ghastly expensive Next-Day Air), to AFSC in San Francisco. Well in advance of the Valentine's Day deadline for this year's Campaign for Youth.
Three sweaters, one pair of socks (that last courtesy of the Princess; I don't do socks).
I find I am enjoying my self-satisfied virtuousness. These are really rather nifty knits, even the Purple Sweater which has haunted this blog and my home since the 2008 a4A Youth Campaign. That's three campaigns ago. Details of the struggle are here, here and here ( among other places). I am deeply, deeply happy that it's gone.
Sock details will have to await the Princess uploading them to Ravelry. Sorry, not my knitting.
The other two sweaters, now, for those I have details.

Needles - US 8/5 mm Addi turbos for the body and sleeves, US 7/4.5 mm for the cuffs and bottom ribbing, 24-inch for the body and three 16-inch for the sleeves (now my most favorite way ever to knit small tubes. I may never go back to standard DPNs).
