I am such a sucker for contests when people are giving away free yarn! Are people really this generous, or are they trying to get rid of stash yarn they don't like anymore? Or both?
The latest contest I discovered is being hosted by Chappysmom. All you need to do is take a picture of your November 2006 calendar & post it on your blog & then leave her a comment.
I am knitting. Really I am. When DH isn't around, I'm working on his Christmas present which is 60% complete & when he is around, I've been working on the Here & There Cable Scarf. I'm using the KnitPicks Swish Superwash in Dark Navy and this yarn is really nice to work with. This scarf pattern is definitely not a quick knit & does use quite a bit of yarn (700+ yards so far), but it's a good project to knit while listening to your favorite podcasts. I'm determined to get the D$%+ thing done soon though so I can start on something new.
I forget to tell you all about DH's little surprise for me 2 weeks ago. He told me he was stopping to get a haircut (which was much needed). When he came home, I couldn't look at him for the first hour. He promised it was temporary, but everytime I looked at him, I felt like I was seeing a stranger.
Does he look younger? Yes. Do I feel like I'm having an affair? Yes.
