"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.

I'm So Madli In Love

And I don't think it's a healthy love either. It's obsessive, jealous, and all consuming. I can't possibly sustain this level of love, can I?



An overview of the progress. I've managed to re knit the part I frogged, and I'm done knitting two repeats (with at least one small error, which is non-noticable).



You can see the lace detail a bit better in this picture.

Please go wish Stacey a happy birhtday!! She turns 29 today!

Last night, some school friends (well, they're just friends now, since we're not in school anymore, but just like I call my knitting friends my knitting friends, even though they're more than just knitting friends... oh, you get the freaking idea) met up at Swimclub 32 in the Highlands area for some dinner and drinks. I highly recommend going, if you're not starving. It's kinda pricey for a bunch of snack sized plates and... it's the drinks. Most of the yum yum martinis are between $8-10. If you're going, you have to try the first martini (and if I had stopped there, perhaps I would remember the name of the drink). It has limoncello, strawberry puree, and it's icy, frothy, and yummilicious. We also shared some guacamole, pierogies, a cheese plate, vegetable lasagne (fresh made mozz, fresh tomatoes, pine nute, basil pesto, spinach). Very tastey (esp. the drinks) but I felt it was overpriced... so, check it out, but don't go hungry.

hey - that's not too far from where I'll be living! Maybe we'll have to have a martini before you move...

Wow...you've made some good progress on that lace! (why am I not surprised though?) You crack me up the way you write your blog though...it's totally the exact way that you talk. I can just see you shaking your head and saying, "oh, you get the freaking idea!" Thanks for making me laugh while I'm at the office...and thanks for the birthday shout-out!

Madli is gorgeous. No wonder you're in love.

Swim 32 sounds good, if a bit far from me....

I didn't need to hear about food a few hours before lunchtime! Aggh! The place sounds good though. You are totally obsessively in love with Madli, I can tell. That's awesome. You're making great progress. It looks great!
