You are


I don't want to be at work today ...

  • Lorelei's Dad comes home tomorrow after two weeks in California. YEAH! I can't beleive I made through two weeks alone with Lorelei and the dog, and with a snow storm, too.
  • I'm down to 3 WIPs: Jaywalker #2, Lorelei's Dad sock #2, and Cozy. I really want to cast on for Branching Out and some new socks and of course, my perfect sweater. But I won't. I'm trying to cut down on the number of WIPs I have going at any one time. Maybe if I only work on one (or two) project(s) at a time, they will be finished faster. I've been working on the second Jaywalker for what feels like 6 months - which is crazy.
  • I finished the Log Cabin baby (doll) blanket this week. I'll post pictures after Lorelei's Dad brings back the camera.
  • Tickets for the Nationals Opening Day game go on sale tomorrow. We're hoping to take Lorelei to her first baseball game (the Nats are playing our Marlins).
  • February sweeps is over. My favorite shows right now - Lost, Heroes, The Office, Gilmore Girls, and Veronica Mars. Jericho is another show that I like - I ended up watching most of the first half of the season on the internet.

Have a great weekend!

Where am I?

How long do I need to live in DC before I remember that Indian heads mean "Redskins" and not "Seminoles?"

Every time I see the Redskins logo - I think "oh, a Florida State fan."

Who are you?

Bert is not one of Lorelei's favorite characters, but at least I wasn't Oscar.
You Are Bert

Extremely serious and a little eccentric, people find you loveable - even if you don't love them!

You are usually feeling: Logical - you rarely let your emotions rule you

You are famous for: Being smart, a total neat freak, and maybe just a little evil

How you life your life: With passion, even if your odd passions (like bottle caps and pigeons) are baffling to others

Happy Valentine's Day

Lorelei's Dad is in California for two weeks for work, so this is a pretty sucky Valentine's Day so far. And the weather is yuck, so I decided to stay home and knit. And update my blog.

I finished a pair of booties last night. No pictures because a) it's the fourth pair I've done of these and b) Lorelei's dad took the camera to CA. This makes 6 FOs in 2007 - two pairs of baby mittens, 1 baby hat, 1 pair of baby booties, 1 pair of Fetching, and a scarf. OK, so most of them are tiny and took a couple of days but they still count as FOs. I'm also almost finished with a log cabin blanket for Lorelei's baby doll.

A Case of the Mondays

I started nephew's mittens version 2.0. I realized what went wrong with the first pair. 1) My gauge was very off and 2) Nephew has giant hands. 5-month-old nephew's hands are the same size as 2-year-old Lorelei's hands. Anyway, I'm halfway through the second mitten of version 2.0 which will probably be too big, that's just the kind of luck I have.

I finally turned the heel of my second Jaywalker - I might have a finished pair by Spring.

I also made a baby hat for a friend who's due next month.

This is the umbilical cord hat from Stitch 'n Bitch in lovely acrylic. The yarn actually is pretty soft and looks nice.

Lorelei caught me using her baby as a model and now thinks that baby needs her own hat.
