First I finished these, which I call Fe Fi Fo Fum
Hand dyed by Nerdclub2000 as part of her chemical elements, this is Iron Ions (hence the name). It spoke to my inner chem geek.
Next were these, for my mom.
The pattern is Hourglass from Knitty. I entered them in Knit'n From the Heart's Socktoberfest and despite some initial confusion I won first place. 20% off sock yarn for a year!
After all of that pattern going on I decided to knit another pair of plain socks
They're out of some Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock I bought awhile ago at 3 Kittens and finally got around to using.
Now I've decided that with winter coming I need a new set of hat and mittens.
Turns out that this was a good decision as there was a wee bit of snowfall today. None sticking to the ground yet, at least.
Thus ends the crazy long update. Clearly, I need to update more frequently. That shouldn't be a problem as I'm going to attempt NaBloPoMo again this year.

I find it generally interesting but one entry in particular doesn't quite make sense to me. Doctor Who, especially New Who. Granted, I don't know that looking at only viewers through SciFi is all that accurate for Doctor Who. Nielsen ratings puzzle me in almost any case. Plus, I think I'm really burnt out on politics.
