I Should Be Studying...But heck, blogging doesn't REALLY count as goofing off, right? Anyway, I'm skipping class tomorrow to finish up my outlining, so, ummm, somehow that counts as being a responsible student. Or something like that.
Much excitement chez-moi the last few days - thanks to my cell phone, gravity, and the hard, unyielding concrete sidewalk. The phone - it is dead. Poor thing... but thanks to ebay, I should have a replacement in my mailbox tomorrow, and will soon be back in touch with the outside world. I would have just gotten a new phone, but I'm planning on switching carriers in February, so I went with "cheap that will will last me 3 months." All things considered it hasn't been too much of an inconvenience - I've just been sitting in front of my computer outlining, with small breaks to eat some turkey and go on some puppy walks, so I've been able to live without the cell phone tolerably well.
I've been knitting off-and-on on the cabled shrug I'm making for my friend Jen by request for those "chilly Albuquerque nights." The yarn is some blue faced leicester that I dyed in lightly variegated dark greens. The yarn was billed as a DK, but after a soak, it blossomed into more of a light worsted - very pleasant to work with. The pattern is my own, and one that I hope to write up and offer to the internets as a freebee if I can ever get it done!
And yes, that IS our Christmas tree serving as a background... once my roommate comes home, we'll get it decorated. I also bought some white pine garland - tree+garland = $35... and it makes the house smell so yummy!
Ok, that's about all the even moderately interesting content I've got, so I think it's time for the parade of cute pet pictures. Because, you know, they're so abused....
Making its debut in the 2006 Winter Olympics is this year's knuckle-biting sport of SYNCHRONIZED SUNNY SPOT. Here, you see the world-champion Abby/Cricket team demonstrating a mirror-image half-moon layout. Fantastic form.
And when the team isn't hard at work competing, Abby moonlights as a couch pillow...
Right - off to study some more. And then off to pie night --- mmmmmmm, Smithwicks and Guinness-Beef-Stew in puff pastry. SO GOOD.
And I still have some hand-dyed yarns and some destashing yarns left for sale!
