... and nonsense.

Christmas gifts are proceeding. After ripping out three times, the Pingouin Soft Hair scarf is coming along nicely, though it will require ruthless blocking. Bag #1 to be felted is complete, as is the Winter Nights hat. Thank goodness for stockinette stitch in the round on Addi Turbos. The manly scarf in homespun Pagoda Red Corriedale is on the needles, though I haven't touched it in over a week. I have an idea for manly scarf #2; that yarn is still in the box and needs to be wound into balls. The bottom of Bag #2 is complete; I need to pick up stitches around the other three edges, and then I can proceed with the knitting. Bag #1 took only a couple of days; I except that Bag #2 will not take any more than that. Thank goodness -- I have two other bags to knit after that.

Then there are the slippers. Slipper A of Pair #1 is done; I just need a moment to cast on Slipper B. Then I need to find the eyelash I'm using to trim Pair #2, and those won't take too much time, either. Then it's off to Mom's to felt everything in her washer. I'd do it at home, but it's much nicer to hang out in her basement than it is in mine. Her basement has a computer. Mine has a litterbox. Mom wins.

And there's the hat. I started it as a double knit, but I think I might do something else. DK is fun, but it takes forever. I'll have to ponder it a bit.

Wolfie and I haven't seen too much of each other lately, and we miss each other a lot, so we have a date on Sunday: the arcade, and Lui Lui's for dinner. I anticipate much gastric joy. I can't wait -- I miss him soooo much. Even though we live together, and I see him every day, it's just not enough. We so need a couch so we can snuggle. The chairs are comfy, but they create distance. We don't need that at home; we get enough of it in our lives.

It's not too bad... a little sheddy, and no stretch to speak of, but uber soft and still has a bit of stitch definition.

I'm pricing couches. We may have to get a futon from WalMart, but we agree that we need a couch. We miss much snuggling by not having a couch.
