Although I seriously considered going to a movie I decided I was having too much fun knitting, reading, listening to music, etc. I did go out to Stillwater to visit Darn Knit Anyway; didn't find what I was looking for but did find some awesome stuff.
On the way home I had an epiphany. I've had this humungous pile of scarves, hats, mittens and gloves piled up on the dining room table. How could I organize them and get them out of the way? A closet shoe organizer, of course! (sorry for the awful quality of the photo) I may have to alphabetize them or at least organize them by color, but you get the idea:
Also, did you know that, including the Target down the street from me there are five Target stores between my house and Stillwater? That's one every five miles!
Then I decided to finish a pair of gloves I had started in … 2006! Urban rustic gloves in Noro Silk Garden. Clever pattern, awful yarn (they're knit the long way, garter stitch, with a crochet cuff). I skipped the button closure. Actually, I made up the whole crochet cuff thing, but it worked:
That's it. No more holidays until Memorial Day in May. There will be knitting in the meantime, but no days quite as leisurely as today.
I am currently reading Hyperbole and a Half, The Warmth of Other Suns and Memoria de Mis Putas Tristes. No, I don't usually read three books at once. It was an accident.
