In through the front door
Around the back
Out through the window
Off jumps Jack.

I learned to knit in the summer of 2001 )

Now that we're (mostly) settled into the new place, I'm spending more time with my knitting and trying to finish up a few things and get some more baby gear going. The happiest moment came when I finally found the box containing my copy of Elizabeth Zimmermann's The Opinionated Knitter, which has a blanket pattern in it that I wanted to consider (Garter Stitch Blanket--link goes to ravelry, if you're a raveler).

I've been very scattered lately; moving will do that to you, I suppose, and I'm going to a conference this weekend, so that's eating up what little brain space I have left after trying to finishing up this never-ending report I have to do for work. I shouldn't complain; I have been, as my mother would say, "blessed with work." Unfortunately, I tend to reject those little blessings when I start to feel overwhelmed.

I've never been much for knitted toys, but I might have to succumb to these. LittleZoas needs hand puppets.

I've been hosting a special visitor for a few days, and while he's been happily busy helping me grade papers (my life--let me share the excitement), today I was so pleased to take him for an outing. Of course, as he should know by now, nothing is quite what he's expecting.

Where'd you go? )

I wanted it so badly, but I've been able to shove that want aside, telling myself that it wasn't right yet, that I could wait, that something better would be around the bend.

And then they went and improved it. *cries*

Do I need it? No, of course not. But want is a mighty strong motivator. I suppose I could start trawling eBay to see if I can get a good deal on a first-gen model, but I want the new hawtness.
