Bad bad blogging monkey!

Okay, I admit I've been a bad bad girl. I haven't posted anything in an unacceptably long time. I have very good excuses: I went completely out of town and didn't bring compy, and I started my brand new job. I've been focusing all my energies on the new job thingy. Each night, poor Orion welcomes a bedraggled grouchkin into his home who bears a striking resemblance to his wife. What can I say? I'm excited about the job, and this leads me to put a lot of energy into it.

During travel time, I have started up a pair of socks for my beloved. I didn't originally intend them to be an apology, but maybe they will make up in some small way for the fact that I get home too exhausted to even walk to McDonald's. Ech. I don't know what it is about me and socks. I always seem to fall in love with the lighter side of things. I'm always working at about 8 or 9 stitches an inch. Why can't I fall in love with a nice sportweight sock yarn?

Another fingering weight sock yarn bought during the Minneapolis trip:

There was one more, but it has mysteriously gone AWOL. We can't find it anywhere. I'm sure it will turn up, but I have this nagging fear that I threw it away when I tossed the bag it came in (you can't recycle plastic bags here for some reason).

I've also discovered that my office is exceedingly cold. I got some yarn to make a wrap, but I'm going to have to do something else to keep warm in the meantime...

In other updates, the cardi has been put on hold for some mysterious reason unknown even to me.

I also decided to bind off a blanket that I had been making for a baby who is now way too old for it. The blanket was supposed to end up at least twice as long as it is now, but I think it will make a nice lap warmer for carseats or carriers. It's soft and machine washable/dryable. Anyone know someone expecting a little boy?
