Imogen is done. Ends woven in and all. She just needs to be blocked, which will probably happen tomorrow. I am pretty sure that I like her (hot damn she is warm!) and I can’t wait for my ring stick brooch thing to arrive so I can take a formal, complete picture. But if it dries before the brooch comes I will definitely be posting pictures.

And I decided to knit Pomatomus socks for my sockapalooooza pal. Her feet are very different from mine, and I am not comfortable winging it on my own. So, I am planning on knitting both at the same time on two sets of DPNs (ie the ribbing on one, and then the other, the lace on one, and then the other, etc). We’ll see how long that lasts.

And then, on Friday I was in a bad mood. I have been sick for a few days and realized that I wouldn’t be able to do the social things I had planned on this weekend. So, I bitched and moaned all day to Bertha over email while we were both at work. (work has been slow….that’s another story). Anyways, she was overly kind and put up with all sorts of emails (with subjects like: ‘i am seriously unstable’ followed by ‘feel better.’ It was one of those days.)

In thanks for all of her patience and wisdom and help and general goodness, I got her a gift certificate to The Sweet Sheep. And, because she was feeling bad for my insane moodiness, she bought be a gift certificate to Blue Moon Fiber Arts. She calls this “sharing a transcontinental brain.” I am inclined to agree. Thanks B.
