Turning the knitting crank

I'm sorry I haven't had much knitting content lately. Let me assure you that it's not for lack of knitting. To wit:

I'm now into the sleeve caps on wrappy's sleeves. Those sleeves are somewhere around 20,000 stitches of nearly-pure boredom. I also wish they fit a little more closely in the upper arm, but it's not enough to be noticeable, just enough to make me change them next time. I need to finish the sleeves and add an edging (the woman who first taught me to knit, a wonderful knitter, assures me that applied i-cord will almost certainly keep the sweater from rolling). Then I think I'm done. If anyone wants a copy of the pattern (works for any gauge), they can easily adapt it for ties as well as for a pin.

I have to admit that I have been a bit distracted in the last few days. My fiance came to town. To make up for it, I'm including a picture of the cutest little llama ever. I've wanted this little guy (on sale in one of my favorite Pittsburgh restaurants) for four years now. Sometimes I think my fiance really enjoys being gainfully employed so he can get me presents. :)
