this morning, I noticed that the clock on my coffee maker was wrong. I must have forgotten to reset it after the power went out last time. I don't really use the timer, but now that I knew it was wrong, it was going to bug me, so I decided to reset it. not five seconds after I do, the power goes out. yes. it is going to be that kind of day.
it's been a while since I last posted, hasn't it? what's happened since then...? oh, right. friday night, I taught a friend to knit! she picked it up pretty quickly, too. it was a glorious occasion... especially because after she went home, she stayed up until 1am knitting. haha! she claims she's already addicted, which makes me giddy like nothing else. her husband is not quite as thrilled. I think he already resents me for introducing her to my not-so-affordable hair stylist and apparently he's a little wary of this new, expensive habit that seems to be developing. altho, he's happy she's happy. heehee. and now I (potentially) have a local knitting friend! she lives only 10 minutes away, so I'm already daydreaming about sitting around and knitting and chatting all the time... whee!
speaking of sitting around and knitting, busy schedules and other responsibilities have been getting in the way of me and hurry-up-and-get-a-blog wendy having our knitting dates lately. but monday night, we were both able to get away for a few hours and get in some good knitting time. I managed to finish this guy here:
urban necessity from magknits and the rapid demise of the flip-top mitten. I actually only have one more finger left to do on the urban necessity and I imagine I'll be able to finish it and start #2 tonight. I really should finish these soon, since I've got that nakniswemo thing that I've been neglecting... and that whole christmas gift thing...
