Coraline and Things That Go On Behind The Scenes

I've gotten another couple of inches on the body of my Coraline Cardigan. Clearly, there is more stockinette to go, but I think I'm about halfway to where I need to be to attach the (currently unknitted) sleeves. I'm still amused by the color shifts and the random sparkle, but Ramius says it's starting to bash him in the head at this point.

The yarn may be providing some entertainment for me, but when it comes time to photograph this project for the blog, I have to do some work to show you anything. The knitting is rolling up on the needle quite a bit. Since (I assume, I might be wrong) no one's here to see a log of knitting, I spread it out between my heels and hold it down while I photograph it with my hands. Just a bit of blogging gymnastics to get a decent shot of what I've done. Fortunately, the gauge swatch I made stopped rolling after I washed it. I might put the stoppers on the ends of the cables when I get to the Add-The-Sleeves place and wash and block this lower body section while I knit the sleeves. Or I could just let the whole thing roll up and fix it all at once when I'm done.

I wouldn't mind seeing a yarn log on occasion...
