Oh right, I'm supposed to talk about knitting here, too it too soon to say "it's been a long year"? Because it has. January and February have been crazy busy at work, plus I was sick for two weeks, went to NJ for a wedding, and have just generally been hanging out with people (and playing lots of Rock Band).

We had Weather yesterday. Lots of it. Sun. Snow. Sleet. Sun. Sun and sleet. Sun and snow and thunder. Sun. Clouds. Wind. More snow. Etc. So I spent all afternoon cleaning my room, which was desperately overdue (see: previous paragraph). I even unpacked the last box, which was full of yarn. It lives in an under-the-bed tupperware, now.

There's a lot I want to knit. The subway mittens (of the beast) from the Winter Interweave. Bloody Stupid Johnson from the Winter Knitty. But I was going to cast on for Hanami yesterday if I got a chance to knit. Yes, I'm pretty sure this means I've lost my mind. I think I'm OK with that. I'm just concerned because I REALLY want to use this yarn:

but I don't think it's going to work. (It's 100% Bombyx silk from Spirit Trail Fiberworks, purchased at Fiber Fest this summer.)

Before you start Bloody Stupid Johnson be sure to check for corrections - I know there are some out there.

This weather has been INSANE! I don't like thunder when it is snowing! I hope this year slows down for you - it does seem to just be FLYING by.

My twin skeins of this yarn are in my stash mocking me. To tell the truth I'm terrified of it! But I HAD to have it!

I'm quite disappointed that you didn't post the picture of yourself looking all Princess Leia-like with this yarn. ;-)
