work is weird! non-work is joy!  
Things that are great!

1) People did my meme! I now feel that I have value as a human.

2) I have started knitting Starsky from knitty.com. There are MANY joyous things about this. First of all, I am using yarn from a past aborted sweater project, so yay, it's like free! And I can feel speshul because the pattern is rated D for Death "extraspicy," but I still get to avoid all the major knitting hangups I have (read: colorwork, weirdo textured yarn, sweater-knitting without a pattern). The last few (okay, more than few) sweater projects of mind died on the needles because I was DETERMINED to knit without a pattern, so I'm hoping the warmfuzziness of being told what to do again will keep me engaged until I actually finish it!

3) My wisdom teeth of doom are actually starting to heal! I am no longer a freak of medical science! I am still told to Expect Pain for a good long while, but WHATEV, not-a-freak-of-medical-science-yay.

That's puuuuurrrrrrty. A bit of a jump for me, having not yet actually knitted anything more complex than a tube scarf (knitting being my Craft I Can Take With Me And Talk To People While Doing And Mostly Not Pay Attention To). But I do plan to move on to either the Princess Leia hat or the "wig" hat after finishing the current Who-scarf. Really!

You always have value. Lots of it!

I have started knitting Starsky

Neat! And yeah, very Starskyesque.

Did you see the ad for the llama wool? Next thing y'know, they're gonna advertise duck wool! Bwahahaha!

weirdo textured yarn

Wow. My brain translated that as "weird tuxedo yarn" ... which caused me to make a Danny!face.

And if you ever get inspired to try to knit a puppy sweater, I know a little girl dog who would just love one. :^D


[dances with joy] Yea! There is light at the end of the tunnel!

I totally dig the design! If, after knitting it, I also love how it was constructed, I'm totally looking up other patterns by the designer. Love it.

I feel like I should watch reruns or something while knitting, to get in the right spirit...?

LLAMAS! I love alpaca wool, and they are like mini-llamas... so it's not so much of a leap.

Puppy sweater!! I have been Opposed On Principle to puppy sweaters for a long time, because most of the doggies wearing them look so horribly ashamed of themselves, but if Haley is the type of girl who likes that sort of thing... of course, you'd have to get her to hold still for a few seconds to take measurements!

My coworker's chihuahua (named "Chi-chi Wa-wa") has to wear sweaters because she gets super-cold. She'll beg for them to be put on.
