I've been in gung-ho knit mode lately (I wonder what causes these changes in the level of obsession.) and had a big photo shoot the other night. The funny thing is that a lot of these projects feel very new and it's hard to remember what I was knitting before. I guess the blue sock, but I feel like I put that down ages ago. And there were booties and two baby hats (which I did not get pictures of before gifting them – ugh!). I guess the MS4 started (and ended) earlier than I thought it did. I vaguely remember ceremoniously putting that one away when I was invited to two baby showers on the same day.

I think now we're at a point where any knitting until Dec 25th will be for other people, which means blue socks and MS4 stay on hold.

Ali's fingerless gloves are finished! Check!

Skip's sweater is still coming along. Good TV knitting. (How did I never notice that Skip is a giant, giant person?

Next up are Grandpa's socks. I've decided he needs some alpaca socks to get him through the cold winter. He's a giant, giant person, too, but I'm holding on to the hope that I can get these done by Christmas. I just need these socks and Skip's sweater.

And maybe a cape for Grandma…

Just a small one…

28 Days

I got the movie 28 Days from the library and watched it this morning. I saw it a long time ago and remembered liking it a lot. What I forgot was how horrifyingly depressing it was. Yes, there are cute funny parts, but overall it's pretty much a bummer.

And, to make it worse, it's very triggering to someone who recently quit smoking. They smoke constantly! And I think it just proves that smoking is not that bad for you. They're trying to get these people off drugs and alcohol, but they don't seem to frown upon smoking.

I should have put a patch on today. Now I'll just have to snack on chocolate all night. Gosh darn it.

Oh, that's real butter!

I have a job at Meijer and I haven't been smoking for a week and a half. Go me. I also have a cold, but that's less of a 'go me' situation.

How've you been?

(The title to this post is a line from a Strangers with Candy and it's one of my favorite parts. I think the delivery is the funny part though.)
