I wore the stole to work on Thursday...loved it, it felt great (much, much warmer than I was expecting!) I've had my head full of plans since I blocked the beastie...finish the Viking Sweater of Doom; knit something out of that silvery Sweet Georgia lace-weight (yarn so sexy I prolly shouldn't mention it on a family blog, it makes me feel that good to think of wearing it! *ahem*); knit a pair of socks for the Sock Summit sock hop (the class list was posted today...squee!)...hell, just finish the washcloth I stalled out on halfway through.
And I just can't do any of it. I put in a Buffy DVD and actually watched it, without wanting to knit! Crikey! I hope this isn't permanent!
So here I am, home from grocery shopping, with a day to myself while Mr.Q's out celebrating his birthday (yes, again) with a pub crawl of epic proportions...and the dishes are done, laundry's reasonably under control, I had such a late lunch that supper's a non-issue, there's no reason not to be in my PJs...prime knitting time, non?
Non. No, nein, nyet, nada.
I got nuthin'.
Guess I need a bit of a time-out after that last marathon. And you know what? I think I'm OK with that (for a limited time!) Coz in the meantime, what I do have is 3 lazy, cuddly felines, a little more Buffy, and some vanilla vodka to mix with that Godiva's liqueur. Not to mention some pajamas calling my name.
Sounds like a perfect date-night-with-self to me!

I have been a busy, busy Quimby of late, trying to get the last of my House Cup homework finished before next week's deadline. And, I am happy to report, I just "handed in" my last project. Which, incidentally, is largely the reason for my recent disappearance from the innernets. I have been knitting, and knitting, and knitting. Literally, hours every night. I've knit through the last 3 seasons of Stargate Atlantis (how cheesy was that ending?!), and a season and change of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
All for this:
Print o' the Waves stole, in mmmmmMalabrigo sock (Persia). Want to see more?

I'm wearing a skirt to work.
This is some seriously crazy shit.

So that's why I haven't posted in far, far too long. Also, I was getting very little help on the home front, as illustrated below:
A closer-upper shot to more clearly illustrate just how overwhelmed the Mr. was with his feline responsibilities:
Yeah. Life's hard for all of them, hey? Meanwhile, I've been changing the litterbox two or three times a day, so Bagheera's leg wouldn't get infected. Not to mention the issues with his Space Cat cone - climbing all over our heads, trying to cuddle on our pillows, hacking up furballs in the middle of the night. (While wearing the cone. Meaning, furball ick on the cone. Which, when you consider the whole head-cuddling thing, is just too, too ick to wait till morning to be cleaned up. So there was some interrupted sleep going on, too.)
But it hasn't been all woe and gloom. There was also knitting madness (and cheeseburgers) last weekend. See?
(The yarn was Mini Maiden. I couldn't help myself.)
There was an interesting interlude with bewbs and.....well....see for yourself:
There was an entertaining conversation about the Obamas' surprisingly open sexual habits...(for more information, go here) which led, almost inevitably, to indecencies being committed upon unsuspecting skeins:
(For the record, that is not my hand!)
(Because, after all, somebody has to hold the camera!)
So you see, I've been var' var' busy. To cap the week off, I had to take Bagheera to get his stitches out today. Looks like all is well there. (Whew!)
Also, I've been knitting condoms. More on that later. Hope all's been with you, Dear Reader(s)! Don't forget to change your clocks back tomorrow night, as it is
the night of evil sleep-sucking doom the time change this weekend!
