Little do they know that this is actually basically happening in blogland already.
And now for some updates.
Knitting update: I've got a sleeve and a half of Autumn Rose. I love the thing more every day, and no longer worry that it won't look good on my non-waifish body because Anne looks positively smokin' in hers. There's lots of detail on my ravelry project page that I will reproduce here when I have some photos to share. I'm in that project-love phase where none of my other projects matter. MS3 might get UFO'd. I love it, but don't want to knit the wing, and knitting the same part over and grafting doesn't make me all excited anymore. Dunno. We'll see. The shetland triangle is the only one that has a chance with me right now. Well, there are always socks.
Vacation update: What do you call a vacation with cold weather, a blown transmission halfway there, republican in-laws, and a bed in a damp basement? Yeah, me either. On the upside, we did have one and a half nice hot days at the lake (the other half of that day we had to drive 4 hours, oops), a fun day at Story Land, and some good knitting/reading time. I'll try not to whine too loudly. Being back isn't as brutal as I feared, so that's a relief. Next vacation: December. With in-laws. Then another in February...also with in-laws. (I do love them, but hmmm...)
Erm, my lunch hour is almost over and I haven't gotten any food, so this is me signing off...I do have this idea for tessellated fish and some kauni and a kid sweater. I just have to figure out what I did with my charting software.
