Pardon Me, Is That Extra Lean?

Ah, another joyous night at the Codger Corral. Having nothing to do except answer the phone and look pretty is something of a novelty. I've been bringing my knitting to work on, and several residents have commented on the fact that my yarn looks like hamburger. Henceforth, the sweater (which may take until fall to finish) shall be termed the "The Ground Chuck Cardigan"

For those of you who care about this kind of thing:
The sweater is knitted from Encore DK that does bear a striking resemblance to hamburger (Scroll to bubblegum twist) Am making a fairly basic cardi, similar to the "matches everything" cardigan in the Stitch & Bitch book Originally had planned to make it for the meat locker they call our "office", but the impending move to Hell's Half Acre has made this not nearly so pressing.

Side Note: Hell's Half Acre is a beautiful house built in 1824, converted into 3 units in 1890, and remodeled in the late '60s. It was blighted with ugly carpet, disgusting drop-ceilings, thousand-year-old linoleum, and a whole lot of suspsiciously blood-like spatters in odd spots of the front rooms. We (My co-conspirator G. Monkey and I) are the slave laborers who are attempting to redecorate with some semblance of taste. Our boss is back from vacation tomorrow, and will see what we've done so far. Cross your fingers that she doesn't have a coronary. (Although if she does, G. Monkey would be in charge. I can think of worse things.) End Side Note

At any rate, more as I see fit. Yes, there will be funny. Eventually.

I can think of worse things than a Ground Chuck Cardigan...like Grilled Cheese Pants or perhaps a Chicken Parmesan MuuMuu.
