"I hate waiting."

As you might guess, I'm a bit impatient. I had hoped that picking up a pair of knitting needles would help me learn about the virtue of patience... but it seems I just want my projects to go along as quickly as possible.

Treat me like a fool....

Treat me mean and cruel. But love me.
-Elvis

Gotta love that song. So I have this weekend kind of free, and therefore shall be posting all the stuff I've promised and not followed through on. Like, pics of yarn that I've purchased (inluding sock yarn galore, a 2 lb cone, some Noro...), my WIP progress (teddy bear all in one, toe up sock, and crocheted baby blanket are the flavors of the month), and some updates on my life. Wait. I can update in about 2 words.

Nothing's happened.

I had class last weekend, then spent some time with Stacey's family on Sunday. Stacey and her mom? Should simply be called "the enablers." Marsha, Stacey, and I purchased yarn from WEBS a few weeks ago. Then, Marsha picked up a couple skeins of Trekking XXL that I can't live without, apparently. (psst. i'm in love with color #108, i have 2 more skeins in my stash now). On Monday, I cooked dinner with my friend (eggplant, of course). We made saffron rice, chicken, mushroom, & zucchini kabobs (marinated in cumin, tumeric, red pepper, and garlic), to accompany the zesty eggplant (garlic, tomato paste, cumin, tumeric, more garlic). Kind of a middle eastern flavor. Mmm.

Oh! I did finally block and weave in ends of the infamous Noro shrug (which I made with Paintbox). Pics of the FO coming soon to a blog near you.

Hmm, I don't Stacey told it quite the same way... ;)

Is #108 the color that has a lot of blue in it, but otherwise is similar to #100?

Sounds like a darn tasty meal. *drool*

Oh, yeah, you haven't shown all the yarn you've gotten lately? I saw from Michelle's blog it looks like you've indulged in more of the Koigu Kool-Aid!! Can't wait to see the knitty progress, too, especially a FO! Enjoy the free time. Maybe I'll see you sometime this weekend.

That is true, I haven't seen many pics lately. Yarn porn, hmmm. BTW, thanks for the tips on Clapper.
