I finished the Endpaper Mitts! Once I weave in the ends, I'll post a pic. So pretty. I was a little panicked about having enough yarn, and if I'd made two medium sized ones, it would have been close, but enough. As it turns out, the small was really the right size for me. Mind you, I have one medium and one small but it's not that glaring a difference and definitely not enough to redo. They're so pretty!
Remind me. Use smaller needles when working ribbing. Why is that so impossible for me to get through my skull?
The Hugs for Snickers scarf is getting a wee bit longer, I've knit nothing on the Curve of Pursuit, Mary Tudor, or Lace Edged Elegance aka Golden Gate, but hey. Deadline today. It's been all about nothing, nothing nothing and then WORK! No pictures today either, it's all panic and then I'm out of here for the week.
I wish I'd gotten a picture of the sight I saw yesterday on the way home from work! I was sitting at a stoplight in a half commercial/half apartment area noticing your average semi gangster big pants long t-shirt looking guy crossing the street in front of me taking a long look at a nondescript down-at-the-heels looking guy walking on the sidewalk. The guy looked......well, nondescript. I'd say hard up, but that seems to be the fashion. (I'm not crazy about the big pants long T-shirt look either.) I mean, clearly nothing that Long T-shirt would register normally. So I take a long look at nondescript down-at-the-heels guy and think that maybe he's holding something. A puppy? Is the guy a creepy predator? A stack of letters? Is he a misunderstood soul?
It finally dawns on me that yeah, he's holding something and that something is wrapped around his neck too. Something like this.
And naturally, not only do I not have my camera with me, by the time I remember my iPhone has a camera, the light is green and the traffic is making me move and I miss my shot. Bummer, but hopefully I won't see that again. Yes. I admit it, I'm afraid of snakes. I'm afraid of small harmless garter snakes (suuuuure they are. This is rattlenake country), so imagine my fear of big huge ginormous maneating snakes.
TV TALK: I hope everyone is watching Brothers & Sisters Sunday nights. It's a little suspect that every single one of them is having relationship problems (well, not Kitty and Rob Lowe). Oh and (WARNING: SPOILER discussion of last night's show) what kind of plan is it to save your marriage to go home and live with your parents, particularly when your father clearly thinks your husband is not the best you can do? Taking your one brand new surviving twin with you. It did crack me up when Sloan offered to spot him three strokes if he wrapped the 9 Iron around his father in law's neck.
Tonight: Chuck, Heroes and Journeyman. Heroes didn't even get a "what's happpening" blurb in our "TV Guide". For the record, I hate the new TV "Guides". Five different grids for different time periods, most of the shows labeled "various" - like I need a "guide" to tell me there'll be various programs on TV - it's pretty much a given. Grrr.
On Journeyman, it looks like Dan gets braced by both Katie and Maybe Not Dead Fiancee tonight. (Have you noticed I'm having the worst time remembering names this season?) Funny, the one thing that almost put me off the show completely is what I'm finding the most compelling.
No Bones or House tomorrow night so it's all about NCIS, The Reaper and Damages. FX is running a marathon of Damages on Saturday- 12 episodes if anyone wants to catch up.
The Women's Murder Club last Friday night was a little disappointing. In fact, I watched Friday Night Lights which SHHHH! is not half bad. Naturally last week was the lowest ratings its ever had. Joy.
Thursday night I have got to watch Viva Laughlin (CBS). It's up against Law & Order Criminal Intent (USA) at 10pm, but I have a feeling it's not going to be a conflict for long but I'll probably love the dumb thing.
Knit Bits: I'm having massive desires to cast on the Spanish Knight and Medieval Tapestry (both out of Jade Starmore's A Collector's Item book.) Naturally I have nothing in my stash. Also? I have WIP's! WIP's that are reasonably close to being done if I'd work on them.
