Rogue Deadline? What Deadline?So today is Wednesday. And the Rogue Cardigan is, alas, still unfinished. I did receive a perfectly matching zipper - who knew that light purple would match better than any pink? Love the folks at zipperstop for taking the guesswork out of the equation. But I stalled on the whole "graft the hood cable together" thing - I know I did it before, but I'll have to figure out how to fudge the grafting so the cable looks continuous. I just wasn't up to it. Nor was I up for the whole installing the zipper thing, especially since I don't have any matching thread, so I felt justified in stuffing the whole thing back into its bag.
I distracted myself with my new shoes... the Merrell Siren Ventilators. These are BY FAR the most comfortable sneakers I have ever put on my feet. I may never ever ever take them off. (Snowglobe flannel pj pants, however, are optional.)
And look! More distraction! My dad gave S and me a little present last weekend...
... his old SLR camera! It's probably about 30 years old, and I have absolutely NO idea how to use it. S thinks he'll start playing with it, though...
And check out the cool telephoto lens! Again, I have NO idea what to do with this, but I'm thinking it'll be fun to play with. I just wish it fit on my new digital camera!
And finally, just for fun - check out all of the various "holiday snoopies" that S has given me over the years - that's Easter Snoopy, Winter Snoopy, and 3 different Valentine's Day Snoopies. :)
