That’s ma story & I’m sticking to it. I am FREEZING!! And this morning I’m not feeling so hot because I actually drank wine last night. I think if I try to run today, I’ll be puking in the bushes. I am SO not a drinker – WTF was I thinking?! And yeah, I had like 2 glasses of wine over 3 hours or something equally ridiculous. Maybe if I feel a bit less queasy later, I’ll attempt a run or maybe a Tae Bo workout (since it’s much warmer inside!).
With all the cold weather, I’ve gotten some progress on the knitting front – yay!! :D I finished up the Candleflame Shawl and I’m quite pleased with how it turned out…
So next up is a lace project for the Rubberneckers Not Rubbernecking group on Ravelry. We’re doing a lace KAL, pretty much any lace project we want. I’m tackling the Asphodel Lace Scarf for the first go round. I’m quite pleased with it so far…
I’ve broken my “only one project at a time” rule… I’ve also gotten a new sock pattern OTN! w00t! This one is Draco, for sure. I’ve got the plan worked out in my head – we shall see how it pans out. For the HP fans ~ think of Draco in Deathly Hallows… caught in a bad situation & unable to see his way out. No more hints! ;)
Speaking of HP… I just read some fan fiction last night whilst knitting. It was a dark read & while entertaining, it wasn’t entirely my cup of tea. I’m waiting for a long one to finish up, my fellow fan fic lovers on Ravelry have been singing the praises for Bundle of Joy, which is on The Petulant Poetess. I won’t read a WIP, myself, having been burned more than once by an abandoned story. Plus I hate that whole waiting a week (or sometimes a month!) just to read one chapter bit. I want to read stories in one sitting, damn it! LOL
In the meantime, I’m reading a funny little book I picked up from the library, Death, A Life by George Pendle . The beginning feels forced, but now that Satan has moved to Earth, the story is picking up and finding it’s flow. I’ve had a few moments of downright LOLing – like the T-Rex was a vegetarian until Satan got ahold of them. If you like Monty Python, Douglas Adams or Christopher Moore, then I think you’d get a few laughs out of this one. Definitely not for the serious nor the religious!
Today’s Ravelry Search
So I guess it should be related to Valentine’s Day again… give this one a go, you’ll see patterns like these:
Happy Sunday, all!
