A funny thing happened to FC that was knitting related. I made him a Star Wars toque for his birthday last year, and he wears it when it's cold out. A lady saw him at the GO station, and admired it. FC said that I had made it for him, and she wanted to know if she could get ahold of the pattern, so someone in her family could make one- she asked "are knitters like chefs, where they don't share their recipes?" I thought that was really funny.
Since the charts aren't mine, if she sees him again, I'll be happy to pass on the info from Ravelry. That hat was the forerunner of "Exterminate" which has proved very popular. I guess there are alot of nerds like FC running around.
In other news, not alot happening on the home front. I am still a bit nauseated, but have armed myself with a large bottle of Gravol, which makes me dopey, but at least I don't have the urge to "rock a barf". Besides, anything "sick" is supposed to be a good thing, amongst the teenage cognoscenti.
My Dale is coming along. I guess I don't have much of an attention span, because I find big projects daunting. It's in time out for a while, but I will finish it.
We haven't had much snow to speak of, so I've been wearing my new Halflingers, shearling lined clogs from Germany. These are perfect- note how well they enhance my workman's socks.
Inspired by my friend Pat, she gave me the recipe for this apple Bundt cake, so I went home and made one. I haven't eaten any, as I need to lose a few pounds, but I had fun baking it.
I got a new knitting bag and needle holder for Christmas, from Slipped Stitch Studios. Sick, eh? Etsy can be a dangerous thing, but I love it.
