Well, I've enjoyed my time with my secret pal so much that I've already signed up for Secret Pal 6! You should too. You know, if you knit and blog...
In more knitting news, I am a chocolate decadence IDIOT. So, I'm increading up to the bust and am thinking to myself, I need to get up to 106 stitches, then knit for an inch straight, and then start the sleeve decreases. And then I count my stitches and #$&(*&#@ I have 108.
So, I rip out to the last increase, including the increase row and then knit an inch straight and then I look at my pattern notes to see how the sleeve decreases go... GAH!
I was really supposed to increase to 108 after all. I haven't ripped out the inch yet. GAH!
@#$! %^&%^$ @#!@# ^&*&^* @!#!@#
In other news, here is our book pile. We went to IKEA to get some bookshelves for the pile, but DUDE! IKEA's a little overwhelming. We finally just took a catalog so we could think about it some more...
Also, I want to say to anyone thinking of reading the Thursday Next books by Jasper Fforde, you really should. I finished Something Rotten before moving out to DC, and the whole series was AWESOME!
