On knitting, books, food, and other philosophical questions

This is Samus. I started it as my Knitting Olympics project (the personal challenge was tackling cables for the first time). Yes, it has been on the needles that long. But now I have two incentives to finish it ASAP. First, as you know, is Autumn Rose--I'm not allowed to cast on for my new obsession until I finish this. The second is that the Yarn Harlot is coming to town on Thursday. The Harlot herself, founder of the Knitting Olympics. Think I can sew on the other sleeve, knit approximately 57 miles of i-cord edging, install my first zipper, block, and dry this in under 48 hours?
I read voraciously. I meditate (zen, knitting, camping, canoeing, daydreaming--all forms of meditation in my opinion). I have a long list of places I'd like to see and languages I'd like to learn (currently working on Hindi). I try to make the world a better place.
