Welcome

Hi!

This is a bad post and I should feel bad.

Bored. While Dan's off on the guys' annual float trip, I'm working both on a sweater and The Bat Shawl; the latter of which is nearing completion surprisingly quickly. Possibly I shouldn't be so surprised, given that the differences from my last shawl and the only thing I have for comparison include 1) this is in sock yarn, not cobweb and 2) this is mostly stockinette and incredibly repetitious. In any case, it's awesome and I'm going to love it like candy.

Working on my Snow White right now as well. Contrary to my original thought, it's not dark red. I may make another onein oh fuck this, typing in wrist braces is awful.

*Envision the sound of velcro being torn.*

OK, now then. I may make another one in Burgundy or even Glamour, but for now this one is in a sort of grey-blue called Marine.

There'll be another pair of socks on the needles soon, too...I have some pretty Claudia Handpainted sock yarn in a dark purple/black that is burning a hole in my stash. On the Procrastination List, I still haven't finished the Mini Mochi ones, and considering how much I loathe the yarn it's not surprising. (Adding insult to injury, I screwed up the toe in one of the socks, so I can't even give the silly things away. Undecided on what to do with a pair of reasonably decent handknit socks that aren't perfect but that I kind of hate.)

It'd be spiffy if I had something to blog about that wasn't knitting, but .. I kind of don't. Garden's doing fine, considering how much I ignore it in this "growing, pre-vegetable" stage. Haven't weeded the areas out front in weeks; they look kind of awful. Maybe someday when it isn't 80+ degrees I'll pay attention to it again. Still unemployed. It's great.

Internet is written with the capital letter in a sentence, by the way. And hundredths are written not with a point but with a comma. This is according to the standard. And actually everything is very good..!!
