check it out

Last week, I caught the tail end of a new show called Pushing Daisies. I was intrigued enough to watch it again tonite. Imagine my surprise when it opens with a scene of Emerson (the private investigator) executing a purl stitch and then the voice over says the words "gun cozy". I won't spoil it completely for those of you who haven't seen it yet. Let's just say that a knitting needle saved the day and that hand knitted socks aren't just for wearing on your feet. I think I'll be watching this show next week, too.

Thanksgiving is over and I feel like I've eaten my weight in ham, turkey, and stuffing. There is still a whole pumpkin pie in the fridge. Burp! I'll be putting a treadmill on my Christmas list.

The sun was shining yesterday and we took advantage of it. Hubby raked up all the leaves and we put them into 2 giant leaf bags that look like pumpkins. I also put up a bunch of Halloween decorations on the front porch. The fake spider web is looking a bit sad. I'm going to get a new one tomorrow.

I was at work today. The clearance sales have started. I bought a bunch of FQs, some half meters of fabric, and 2 spools of variegated thread. The store is starting to feel empty. Some of the fixtures are already gone and there's only 5 metal bolt holders left in the store. It's so sad to see the store closing sniff sniff.

Mom's cardi is progressing well. I slipped the sleeve stitches onto scrap yarn and I'm knitting the body now. I'm not bored of it yet so maybe I'll actually finish it on time. Yeah right.

I spent this morning photographing part of my stash. I've decided to sell some of my cotton and cotton/acrylic. I have way too much of it and I know that I'll never knit it up. They're on my Ravelry trade/swap page if anyone's interested.

We're back to rain today. Ricky and Phoebe certainly enjoyed the one day of sunshine.

"Yowza - that's some good sunshine" - Ricky

Love your kitty photos! It's been so gray here that I'll be fighting for my spot by the windows when it comes back out.
