The black hole got me again...
I am making a concerted effort to distance myself from the Hanger. One of my best friends aptly described him as a "Sucking Vortex of Angst and Drama". All I've ever really got from hanging around with him for the last 4 years is 4 years older. My good friends thought it would be helpful if I started seeing other men. Doesn't even have to be Mr. Right, just Mr. Distract me so that when the Hanger tries to suck me back in (and he always tries and always succeeds) I can say, "Actually, I'm busy." I think I may have found just such a man. A Fireman. A stand up, do right, and as my sister says... who doesn't love a... Fireman. We shall see. I must admit, the very thought of dating a fireman makes me a trifle giddy. As one of the gals at Knit Night put it... "Just think of the role playing games!"
Okay I'll tear myself away from that little fantasy... for now... I have been knitting. Nothing new, same ol bunch of WIP's. I am a slow knitter.
I finished a cute toque, just in time for some very frigid weather.
Still working on the boy's socks, Mr. Green Jeans and my VBF's Gigi Scarf which I sent her a picture of since it obviously was ready for neither her birthday nor Christmas.
I am still totally in love with SKB... oh how I love my SKB. I love the top downness of it, the lace inserts, just... everything!
I have also been busy acquiring.
I acquired a Namaste messenger style knitting bag and some new C*Eye*Ber Fiber "Mal de Mer"and Sheep 3 from Make One Yarn Studios.
I also acquired some Schaefer Heather, some Shibui Knits and I'm still waiting on a couple of other little treaties for my feeties, courtesy The Loopy Ewe. Hey, I needed some major cheering up OK?
