Officially November now, and I still have not done the sleeves of the sweater. I think I'm just not in the mood for sleeving. I knitted a scarf for the superhubby. That took longer than I thought it would. Three days. I'm going to make the matching hat today. I have to go to the yarn store tomorrow...it is only open in the evening on Thursday. My car is being especially recalcitrant lately, so I have to wait until superhubby gets home from work and force him to ferry me to Birmingham for yarn. I discovered yesterday that Knit, Knit, Knit in Bloomfield is out of business. Now, I don't like to see a yarn store fail, but those ladies kind of deserved it. Every time I went in there they were really rude to me. Ok, I only went there twice, but that was why.
I got my swap partner for the Harry Potter swap. Her name is Anna and she lives in Finland. I have already annoyed her with questions about her country. She is the main reason that I am desperate to get to the yarn store soon. Her stuff is due on November 30, so I have to get going on it. I can't write what I'm making yet, because there is a link to this from craftster. However, Superhubby (he got capitalized for this one) figured out how to make the digital camera work, so I can put up pictures soon! Yeehaw!
In the most pleasant news of this age, my long lost love has returned! i'm not talking about yarn here, just so you know. I don't know if she wants her name in the blog, so I will call her superfriend. i haven't seen her in years, and then suddenly she appears in my inbox! and she is fabulous! I sent her a quote this morning. It has been a long time since I have sent anyone a good quote.
I will now bestow a quote on the non-masses of non-fans:
"The profound thinker always suspects that he is superficial." -Disraeli
and something to lighten the mood:
"A little sincerity is a dangerous thing, and a great deal of it is absolutely fatal." -Wilde
If anyone ever wants a whole cache of depressing quotes about the fruitlessness of life, just drop me a line. You know, everyone needs a hobby. Mine's depression.
