Lookie what came in today!!!

Thanks to the suggestion of my blogging buddy yahaira, I was able to snag the last skein of Vesper from etsy.com. Here it is in the Midnight Knitter colorway. I'm gonna have to learn me some socks now...Maybe I'll actually use one of the patterns from my pattern-a-day knitting calendar! For those of you who've seen that thing, there are a multitude of photos of a woman who must have been knitting scarves with her actual hair (pure white or grey), and has gotten herself one of those black 60's beehive wigs for her head. It's a trip!

Here's the Vesper up close.
On another note, have you ever had one of those days where whatever you do, nothing but nothing goes right? First I wake up to find out the Yankees are out of the playoffs, then I found out that I only got 3 picks (out of 15) on the football pool this week - which knocks me down to 4th place (I was winning, dammit!), last, I get yelled at by my boss...which kept me in the office till 7:15. Luckily, Furry got us pizza and Milano cookies. And we ate in bed (again!).

I'll end on this note...at least I'm not trapped in a box like our furry friend Niblet (aka nibbies).


  1. Hahaha! I have that same pattern a day calendar! I haven't done anything from it yet, but maybe it's time to look through it again...

    Hope today is going better for you!
