On Demand

I'm posting again since Lisa demanded an update and I am nothing if not a people pleaser (90% of my job is being a brown-nosing sycophant these days). I am out of Sock Madness as I was only finishing up the cuff of the second sock of the second round when my division was full up. It's kind of nice being done with it but I wish it had started now instead of when I was working 52+ hour weeks. Maybe I'll try again next year.

I'm on the second sock of a pair I started for my sister last week out of Fleece Artist and I also started a pair of Endpaper Mitts for myself as I was in the mood for stranding. Rogue would be finished if I hadn't realized a mistake I had made in the cap shaping of the first sleeve when I was completing the second sleeve. I just need to go back to the beginning of the shaping on the first sleeve and then it's time to block. Yes, I'm finishing a wool sweater right as they're starting to predict highs in the 60s and 70s. My common sense astounds me.

Finally, since I've now seen this on Lisa, Sarah, and Courtney's blogs, I thought I'd do it to.

Thank you!

Also, sometimes it seems like I watch too much tv also but then i remember there are plenty of people out there who watch wayyyyy more than I do. I'm sure it's not so bad. Besides, it a study of cultural development and sociology;)

I think I might be one of those people out there to make you feel better about your own television habits. Especially as of late. Took a walk last night, though, and I sacrificed Jeopardy for that. Yes, I am on a personal mission to out-geek myself with that admission.
