I know you're probably expecting to see some progress on Hitofude.
I'm afraid you're going to be disappointed. You see, after posting about it, I got a little side-tracked. I made the mistake of not putting the yarn for Old Town away... and it sat there... taunting me...
So I cast on.

A note about the yarn.
Now, astute readers will say, "But Valerie, you hate knitting with cotton." And normally, you'd be right. Cotton is one of my least favourite yarns to knit with (though I don't might wearing it.) It came from Mom's stash, and I just love the colour. (I have three other sweater amounts stashed in different brands of cotton for the same reason - the price was right - free or cheap - and I just couldn't pass on the colour).
But this cotton is surprisingly quite nice. I do have to be careful about not splitting it, but I've worked with far splittier yarns. And unlike most cottons I've worked with, it does have a nice bit of bounce. I'm actually quite enjoying it this time.
But for all you Hitofude lovers out there.. have no fear. She'll get some attention soon too. She's going to be my weekend knitting, while Old Town will be reserved for the week nights, since she's much easier to pick up and put down.
