A sad day

It has finally happened. I have a FO that I am not posting a pic of. And this is not due to the camera's batteries being uncharged or general laziness on my part (i.e., the normal reasons). Nope. This is because I have an FO that I do not like. In anyway, whatsoever. Which is a shame because my productivity has plummeted lately and I wish I could show some kick-butt pic to keep you all from losing faith in me.


For the record, I knit a headband to match the fingerless mitts I made my mother back in July and which are her Christmas gifts. Still love the color of the yarn and the yummy softness of it. But the headband really is just blah. I think it is too wide and too long (which is hard to know for sure since I don't have my mom's head to try it out on... but I am pretty sure). And I am not crazy about the ribbing on it, either. So I am chalking this one up as a failure, even though it is complete. The real question is, should I still give it to her? I need to cogitate on this one!

BTW, apparently everybody who took the Nicole quiz came up as Satine. So.... all of us knitters and crocheters are either secretly pining to sing in the Moulin Rouge or the quiz is busted!

"Satine" in MOULIN ROUGE!You're not just a star in your own mind, you're the real deal. Beautiful, talented, and gorgeous. But life is short: stop worrying about money and fame. Above all things, life for love.
Take this quiz!

Which is fine by me... does this mean I get to sing and dance with my boy Ewan? Woot!

Lists are fun

I am indulging in the way lame "list of non-related things to blog about"... cuz I am feeling very incoherent and scattered!

1.) I finished Sleep, Pale Sister by Joanne Harris. It is very gothic and dreamy and feminist, full of drug use and sexual repression, despite the Victorian trappings. Sounds weird, especially if the only Harris you have read is Chocolat, but pretty enjoyable. My biggest complaint was that it was told in the first-person for three different characters, which just gives me a headache.

2.) Er... knitting content? Um... none of that happening lately. I think I am a bit burned out.

3.) Er... crocheting content? Um... wait! Yes! I have finished two more thread snowflakes! Hurray for me! (And don't ask to see pics, because that would be asking too much...)

4.) I am still reading all of your blogs. Every day. I am just not commenting much lately. But I still love and appreciate each and every one of you. Keep it up!

5.) My husband and I don't watch tv (no cable and we don't get the local stations) so we are so behind on this... but we just rented the first season of Lost. I adore it. So addicted. And honestly. Sawyer? Hot.

6.) Jack is, too. ;-)

7.) My list is rapidly deteriorating into something a 14-year-old would write.

8.) I think I had best get myself off to bed.
