orangemoo and I got together for the first time in months to do some sippin' and knittin' last night. it was like old times... just catching up on each other's lives while catching up on our neglected knitting projects. how often does one get to sit and relax with a good friend over some mediocre coffee and just knit for hours? not often enough, if you ask me.
the good news is that I managed to make some serious progress on clapotis! I got to the end of the straight section and it is now time to decrease. I cannot wait to be done! I actually ended up needing to order one more hank because I must have miscalculated or something and am going to end up short. my only hope is that hank #7 arrives before I get to the end of hank #6. but, at the rate I'm going, I don't think that's going to be a problem.
by the way, I am so addicted to craigslist. I mean, it is an unhealthy obsession that is going to be a serious problem if I don't stop myself soon. actually, not just craigslist. I find myself shopping online for an alarming amount of time each day. my boss needs to give me more work to do or else I'm going to be sending myself to the poor house. at least I'll have lots of fun toys when I get there. and enough yarn to build myself a little yarn-house. that doesn't sound so bad... tonight, I'm planning on driving out to oakley to buy a wagon. oakley! I didn't even know that was a real place. I thought it was sunglasses.
