    Okay, my knitting needles broke, so I have switched to working on the cowl portion of the sweater (different sized needles). I am still doing laundry into the night, but am down to just washing the quilts that I used for the puppies, so I am going to give myself credit for doing the laundry, if not for putting it away yet.

    They are circular needles, and the tension is so tight (I knit with a lot of tension anyway, and the yarn is really too big for the diameter of the needles), when I tugged to push the project down the cable, it popped the needle right off the plastic cord. I have tried gluing it back together, and am giving it the night to set, but I may just have to resort to using really long straight needles, because I can see the same thing happening again easily.
