Oh, Vogue Knitting Live, you have been pretty awesome thus far. Today is a pretty easy day for me, which is good because I have a full day ahead of me tomorrow. I plan to get lots of sleep tonight in anticipation of all the learnin’ I have ahead of me. Woot!

Here’s some pretty green yarn. I didn’t get it at VKL, but this post needs a picture and I’m too tired to take one of what I did purchase there.


I’ve included a picture of ibuprofen in the background, because nothing’s classier than a bottle of ibuprofen.


I’d also like to wear this hat, every day.


Your stash is not a savings account. It is not a rainy day fund. What is up with all the people on Ravelry selling yarn from their stash to pay the rent, to get a bike fixed, or to pay the dentist?? People, if you don’t have money saved for these things, you probably shouldn’t have bought all that yarn in the first place.

There. I needed to get that off my chest.

It’s been sort of a non-knitting week for me, but this weekend will be rather knitting-centric, so it all evens out.

I’m feeling under-motivated about the House Cup this go-round, so I’ve decided I’m not going to push myself too much. I can manage one project for the Cup each month — all three will probably be granny squares for Martha’s afghan — and anything else I turn in will be a bonus.

So far, my knitting for 2012 is off to a slow start. I started Kerry’s birthday mitts at Bryant Park on NYE while the girls skated; since then, I keep *knitting, ripping out, repeat from * at least three times, about five rows. Frustrating. Once I finish typing this, I’m going to go put a chicken in the oven to roast and cozy up on the couch with my knitting again. Here’s hoping I can get through the cuff of the first mitt before dinner.

I’m excited about 2012. I love a fresh start!
