Ah, knitting.

Since school is starting in a week and my syllabus isn't quite done, I figured I should start knitting again in an effort to prevent the job from taking over my life. Two nights ago, I began what will be our new afghan for the living room. It took me a couple of hours to select just the right yarn from my favorite yarn shop: I settled on this (colorcard 7118), which will match the living room furniture and cushions. I had originally wanted something like this, from which I made Bean's afghan, because it is wonderfully light, soft, and warm, and it doesn't show any cat hairs, but I couldn't find a decent color. I'm afraid that the cat hairs will be pretty visible on this new one. We shall see.

I would post pictures of my progress, only I have no program on this computer for managing photos. The other computer ate a year's worth of photos (actually, ALL of my photos, but the others were backed up), and now it no longer has a photo program for my camera on it. So.

It's good to see you blogging about your own life instead of feminism. (Can be stressful.) I have an aunt who has been working on the same afghan for some 30 years. Her husband jokes that she's going to line his casket with it.

I am jealous of anyone who can knit well. I try and try and get no where.
nice to hear something about YOU for a change :)

Thanks, both of you - I feel like I just don't have the energy (or time) to invest in keeping up on all the political doings and commenting on them. Which doesn't mean that I won't write about feminism at all, either...
