No, you didn’t miss anything. I did not, in fact, post yesterday. My excuse? Well. I was out. All day. No kidding.
Around 10:30, Janelle came and got me and we went shopping. My goal was to get a pair of work pants and three shirts for as close to $50 as possible. I got exactly those items for $50.94. HA.
After that, we went and picked up my sister and went to 3 Kittens Needle Arts. My sister and I both had gift certificates, and I wanted to get some sock yarn to knit some socks for my Great-Uncle. I got this:
Malabrigo Sock, in color Alcaucil (semi-solid dark olive green). I haven’t picked a pattern out yet.
I also got this:
5 skeins of Plymouth Galway Worsted in a color that really isn’t as grey is this photo makes it look. It’s actually a pale grey with a lot of purple and blue in it. Very misty. It’s for a Snow White sweater, which takes surprisingly little yarn, actually.
After an hour or so there, we stopped for ice cream and then Janelle and I picked up our respective men and went to her friend’s birthday party. We were going to go bowling after, but didn’t end up feeling like it. We came back to my place and Janelle and I played the Sims 2 until midnight.
Thus, no post yesterday.
Today, I did this.
The astute among you who have been to my apartment since late November will note the lack of Christmas tree, as we took down all of the Christmas stuff today. You may also, if you’re quite clever, notice that I moved the bookcase from one corner to another, mostly because of that cd player you see on it. Where it was before, there was no plug, so we couldn’t use it. Most of the time I’m fine using itunes in the bedroom, but sometimes I want to listen to a cd in the living room, so that was frustrating. Today with the tree gone it was easier to see how to move things to make it work. I like this layout a lot better… feels like a good use of space.
We also got groceries today. It’s nice to have some food in the house, though for some reason I didn’t cook today. I had enough leftovers that it wasn’t necessary. We ate up the rest of that spinach lentil soup.
This evening I did some work on Wisteria, and this time, I DID finish the yoke chart… well, at least the cabling anyway. I love this cable pattern, though it is fiddly to do. It’s just gorgeous. I can’t really capture it properly with my sad little camera, but here is what I got.
