Seriously. I cannot tear myself away. My queue has grown exponentially over the last few days. I’m trying to get the jump on the holiday rush. Unfortunately? Those socks that I mentioned starting in the last post? The ones for my grandfather? Yeah. I finished them. *Then* I cound out he doesn’t wear a 9.5. He wears an 11 wide. 11 WIDE. I need some sportweight. At least I have another pair of socks ready for my dad. I have a friend with a wool allergy and I’m looking for something to make for her. I’m thinking maybe the Clementine Shawlette from…well, from one of the more recent IKs, in some SeaSilk. But not *my* SeaSilk. That’s my Seattle souvenir. Plus it needs to be a purple color for her.
I have my camera. I have some pictures. I do not, however, have my cable available at hand, and I’m feeling a mite lazy this morning…er, afternoon. So pictures will come later.
I’m off to watch Dr Who. I’ve just got the first season from Netflix (the new Who) and I’m in love. MathMan has a friend who is a ig fan, and he burned me discs of season 2 and 3 as well as Torchwood. I’ve started third season already, too. Oh, and that Dalek amigurimi? Yeah. Gonna have to make one.
So we have a new look around here again. I know it’s not *technically* a porcupine (in fact it’s a hedgehog) but I couldn’t find any good porcupine images to use, and isn’t that little guy cute!
I’ve been toying with the idea of starting up a wordpress blog, but after tinkering with them and finding out that I can’t do any *real* customization without paying, that idea went out the window. I may check out another site, but I’m mostly looking for something with multiple static pages as well as the blog.
I’d like to thank everyone who replied to me about the previous post. I have been doing a lot of snuggle time with my daughter, and had a load of strange dreams and unpleasant thoughts. It was extremely sad, but the situation woke me up to the fact that life is what you make of it, and I need to make more of mine.
I have been knitting. Gotten one pair of “Man Socks” done –
Gentleman’s Fancy Sock from Knitting Vintage Socks in Lang Jawoll Color for cuff/heel/toe, and Lana Grossa Meilenweit Color for the main body. Fit my dad wonderfully, and I’ve already gotten through the gussets of a second pair for my grandfather out of Lang Jawoll (again cuff/heel/toe) and Lorna’s Laces. I don’t have a picture to show for that one though.
Well, today’s the “lazy day”, so I’m off to take a nap!
