Getting down to the finish line

And I thought I'd add a little something, just for all those who are actually, you know, trying to make it before the flame goes out.

Oh, wait. I take it back. This one is even better!

Not much fiber content today. I really had to fight hard to get out of bed this morning, which tells me I'm either PMSing, coming down with something, or just generally run down to the point where I'm going to spend most of the weekend sleeping and not getting much done. Feh. I did, however, manage to put the last of the Australian merino in for the pre-soak last night, which is a huge relief. One more giant bag of wool washed, dried and soon to be put away.

Oh! That reminds me! I can't sew for the life of me, but needed to find some sort of inexpensive cloth bags that closed to store the fleece in. There's way too much cardboard in my life right now to want to box it up, and I really want the wool to be able to breathe, but not right out in the open for any moth that comes along to make a home in. So, armed with my google-fu, I found some inexpensive zippered pillow cases. I hope to order within a week or so. YAY!

It's like someone peeked into my brain

The funniest thing I've seen today. Especially if you go to the Store --> Demotivators section.

*ribs creak from laughing so hard* This is the kind of dialog that happens in my head. All. The. Damn. Time. Me love this site long time.

In sock news, I got quite a few inches done last night while attending another astrology lecture. Same person, different location, so not going back if they stick us in the teeny unheated back classroom. Plus, when I occasionally work at the store? I *work* at the store. At least half of the people who were there last night paid the lecturer directly, which is a no-no.

Stupid people chap my hide.

Anyway, socks! I am into the fourth band of color after the toe, and I am having to fight hard to resist the temptation to put googly eyes and a bright red knitted tongue on the end of the construction. Definitely Chameleon, should turn out OK even if the sock looks awfully teeny.

More updates once I get my breath back. ;D
