A is For Anne

Anne is my middle name, and my best friend can't spell it.

A day or two ago I was wandering aimlessly through the kitchen. You know the drill: open the fridge, the freezer, all of the cabinets, then the pantry, sigh and repeat. While doing this I spent several minutes looking at a recipe for shrimp ceviche Melly e-mailed me ages ago. I noticed that in the header she had my middle name spelled "Ann" Melly, it is spelled with an "E" at the end, but I still love you anyway.

Ok, I'm Just Lazy

but it is Wednesday, so that means it is Happy List time!

1. Knitting and crocheting, because I haven't been doing a whole lot of that recently.
2. Knowing what I'm going to do with the next couple of years of my life.
3. Sitting around on lazy summer days.
4. Finding out that I might actually get to see my mom sometime this century.
5. Playing with tiny kittens named Shadow.

I haven't been posting this week, because I am lazy. In a few other blogs I've seen alphabet themed posts, do not be surprised if I start doing something similar over the summer.

As always:

Much Love From Carat Land!

O Hai!

We're still blaming finals, but it's all over tomorrow.

Knit wise I've managed three dishcloths, and this:

Amazing huh?

For those of you who aren't Joss Whedon whores, that is a Jayne hat. I loves it!

I also (finally) finished and mailed off my portion of Merrie's traveling scarf:

There it is hanging out with Ingrid Bergman's puzzle-fied face.

Tomorrow I head for Austin, expect little in the way of information for several days, and then a long and very picture heavy post when I return, and possible a lot of squee-ing

First off a big thank you to everyone who wished me luck on finals, I'm halfway through. Thank God!

This weeks Thursday thing is the addictive nature of knitting dishcloths. Until this afternoon I had never knit a dishcloth, now I have two hand knit dishcloths and am on my way to a third. Why didn't anyone warn me? These things are like crack!

I've got a mad hatter plan a brewing, and should probably get to that. As soon as I finish this dishcloth.
