Must Take Pictures of Knitting!!!So this week is part 2 billion in the "way too busy to breathe" series, brought to you by Law School. There has been the occasional bit of knitting, but I haven't managed to take any pictures. So I figure I'll eventually get around to it, and then I can pretend that all of the finished objects (fine - 2 pairs of socks) - and the progress on the Debbie Bliss Shawl Collar Cardi - represent a great burst of knitting progress.
In the meantime, watch as another "I won't get addicted" knitter falls victim to the siren call of the little needles and the koigu KPPPM.
BWAH HAH HAH HAH HAH.
But, like any good enabler, I couldn't let K purchase yarn all by herself - so I had to find some of my own koigu to take home with me. I've started on a pair with the top yarn - the pink - and it completely reminds me of Cherry Blossoms, which is entirely appropriate given that they're about to bloom.
Oh yeah - I should probably take a picture of the new socks, too.
But look! I did take my camera to Knit Happens' Birthday Party on Saturday, and got this great pic of Kristine and her new boyfriend, who was demonstrating the proper way to eat a cupcake. (Hint - the more icing you get on your face, the better!)
Phyl-Phyl, on the other hand, demonstrated the proper way to... um.....
To continue with the "demonstration" theme - Abby is showing off how to get the last little bit of yummy stuff out of a frozen kong ball. The secret, apparently, it to stick your butt in the air at precisely the right angle for maximum leverage.
And here, she's demonstrating the proper reaction when your "owner" comes home from a weekend out of town.
Cricket, meanwhile, has perfected her own "pet my tummy" position. If you look closely, you can see the tiny patch of white fur on her tummy by her back legs - she has about 5 white hairs.
Oh! And something I discovered thanks to the fancy-pants spa in Santa Fe -
Orange Infused Water
- take 1 orange (or 1/2 grapefruit, or a lime/lemon, or some combo of various citrus fruits)
- cut it into very thin slices
- place in pitcher
- cover with filtered water and refrigerate
- refill as needed
It is SO yummy! I find it lasts about 3-4 days before I have to switch the fruit out.
