Friday Night

I have wool, an audio book, and we had pizza. Does it get any better?

I've almost done one full side of the Fir Cone Shawl's edging:
It's actually square with 4 straight sides--not curved--but it's really hard to photograph without taking it off the needles, and I think that's just tempting the knitting fates unnecessarily.

Could WIP number 9 actually be finished in just a few days???

Crisis!

I HAVE NO STOPLIGHT KNITTING!!!!! ARRRGGGGHHHH!

I always keep knitting in my car to work on at stoplights or in traffic jams. It keeps my little Type-A self calm and free from the desire to kill other drivers for their collective stupidity. And I don't have any.

To be stop light knitting, a project has to be a very simple pattern that is easy to recognize at a glance. And my current projects involve a lace chart and a cable needle--not simple knitting, This is a knitting emergency! I'm going to have to plow through the WIP bin this weekend or take some time off from work. I don't think my stress level can take this!

And, for Danielle, this is Calisto.

She's our moth hunter, which would warm this knitter's heart if she didn't actually catch them outside then bring them in and turn them loose. Not that moths aren't better than Theo's vermin gifts, but my stash gets very, very nervous.
