Where has my knitting gone?

My jobs this summer are nothing like last summer, so my knitting time has greatly suffered! I'm still plugging away at various projects, but very little progress has been made. I'm still working away at Sesame, and I'm very close to finishing all the "pieces" and it'll just be a matter of adding the neck, button(hole) bands, and sewing it up. *sigh* How I hate sewing...

Here are the front and back pieces. The stripes line up perfectly! I'm really happy with how these turned out.

And here's the slight...problem with the sleeve. It also lines up perfectly with the body's stripes, but unfortunately, it's REALLY long. It's about two inches below my fingertips, and barely above them when I roll up the sleeves, like it shows in the photo. Oh well, it'll just make it really cozy :)

I also worked on this today. I labeled my circs with circular paper tags.

I put the US sizes, and the length.

It also helps hold the cord together so they will stay coiled up in my needle case.

And the tags peek out of the pockets to let me know what's hiding inside.
I've also finished this shrug finally. It looks ok, but I plan on making the next one look a little better, by making it longer and fixing the raglan increases. And possibly modifying it to use worsted weight :)
Um, anyways, that's it for now. I shall update again soon!

I bow to your nitpicky self! The stripes look wicked cool.
