what's new

Actually, not a whole lot is new! Same old same old around here. But my blog looked awfully lonely so I figured I should post. ;).

Spinning: 16 down, two to go! I'm spinning the last two batches of thank-you yarn simultaneously because I feel so bad that someone has to be last. I'm halfway through one, and about a third of the way through the other. And omg, I am in luuuurve with merino/tencel...it is an absolute dream to spin.

Don't you want to touch it??

mer-ten

Knitting: sock #1 is done, and it's cushy and cozy and awesome. Sock #2 is stalled, because I haven't had a lot of out-and-about knitting time lately. I knit the heel flap on Thanksgiving, and picked up the gusset stitches, but I really had to put it away because I couldn't work on it without being antisocial, what with the keeping track of the cable pattern while decreasing while my children jumped on and off my lap and begged for more pie and all.

Misc: I'm tired. I stay up way too late. But I can't help it, it's sooo quiiiiet.

The Internet continues to amaze me. I put a video up on YouTube on Saturday night, to address some questions about my basic earflap hat pattern. By this evening it had been viewed 125 times. (Wild.)

I got a huge head of romaine lettuce today, and made a ginormous salad with green peppers, cucumbers, carrots, red onion...grated parmesan and fat free caesar italian dressing...it was amazing. Then I went to the gym. Go me. Then I came home and made eggnog milkshakes. Does that count as two steps forward, one step back? Or does the milkshake completely negate the other two?
