It’s October already

October 12, 2010

So far during the month of October…

Cocoa likes to hide in Chris’s closet where she can just “blend in”.

On related note, I’ve learned that it possible to lose a cat within one bedroom apartment.

And we went and saw Bad Religion – for their thirtieth anniversary tour. It was only appropriate that it was their 30 year anniversary, and we went to see them to celebrate Chris’s 30th birthday.

I can’t believe how old we’re getting. Kinda scary how the time flies by.

And I’ve been playing Fable 2 on xbox. I find it pretty funny how fast I was able to “beat” the game, despite the fact that I have hardest time with the controllers (you should see me trying to access netflix with the xbox controller… really).

And I’ve been knitting off and on. More off than on. Something something.

Oh and last but not the least – now it’s official!! Ariel is developing a sock book with Cooperative Press! And they need your help!

Please participate this survey for sock/feet sizing and measurement (also, hidden in the survey is a mini contest, please read the survey for details!). You don’t necessarily have to be a sock knitter (or a knitter for that matter) to participate in the survey. I thank you in advance for your participation! And I’m sure Shannon and Ariel would also appreciate your effort as well!

So I’ve been sort of missing for a while…

I haven’t been knitting, or doing much for oh almost a month and counting by now. But I thought I’d drop by and say few things.

First of all, I’m super excited about my dear friend Ariel‘s sock designs. There are two designs of hers featured on How to Knit in the Woods, the new book by Shannon Okey. In fact, one of the pairs that I was test knitting for Ariel ended up being photographed in the book as well. How exciting!

Now, if I can only find the book. I haven’t been able to find them locally, maybe I need to get it ordered online.

Next in agenda – I’ve been watching awful a lot of The Office lately (yes, the NBC version with Steve Carell). While visiting her in DC, Chris’s sister sort of got me started watching them, and now I can’t stop.

Let see, what else…. OH, the next project I’m *thinking* about doing is maybe Sahara. And maybe using Cotton Silk Aran from the most fabulous Jen. I think I may have just enough to make one in short sleeve. Unfortunately the yarn is discontinued so either I have to make it work or not. But I think I should have enough to get by.

So far by my to-knit list for this upcoming Christmas: Lucy in the Sky cardigan for Lauren, Slipped Hours pullover (Ravelry Link) for Cyndi. I have no idea what else quite yet.

Time for bed now.
