I'm maybe halfway through--miles and miles of latticework, my friends. And did I mention that working with two strands of yarn can be a real bitch sometimes? And, of course, I have not been faithful to this project in the least. In the time I've been working on the wedding afghan, I've started and finished numerous projects, and I'm on a huge dishcloth kick right now (and I have no idea why). You see this?
It's the silk/cotton blend I bought during Kalan's and my anniversary back in March, and I'm turning it into the Silk Shrug from Erika Knight's Classic Knits. I cast it on two nights ago (technically yesterday). I knit most of the back while watching the Shear Genius marathon on Bravo--and as an aside, wasn't that a fantastic show? No annoying bitches, no manufactured drama, just a fun watch. Pretty much everything Top Design wasn't, really. Congrats to Anthony for winning it all. Also, I think I'm in love with Tabatha.
Please don't get too excited by these pictures--I still haven't found my camera cord. these are just pictures I had saved into my computer. You'll have to view the splendor of the golden Silk Shrug later.
Kalan, Peter, Ivette, and I went to Flatrock today, and I had a good time. Unfortunately, I hadn't eaten much that day, so once we had walked pretty far into the park, my energy took a nosedive. I felt like a zombie until we got some dinner at Subway, which made me miss Jimmy Johns all the more. Peter offered to get dessert, so we trekked over to the new Bruster's and bought us all a pint of Peanut Butter Puddle ice cream, which was ten different kinds of delicious. We arrived at my house just as the D&D episode of Dexter's Lab was coming on on the den TV that my step-brothers had left on. I miss the old episodes of that show; if they put them on DVD, I would buy it in a heartbeat. Good nostalgia there.
Silverchair are going to tour the US soon, and I wonder if they'll be coming to the southeast as well. From what I gather, it's supposed to be a pretty thorough tour. I've never seen them in concert (they haven't toured America since 1999, save the occasional concert in New York), and it would be so exciting to go. They should be announcing the tour dates soon, so I'll be watching closely.
Tomorrow's going to be another full day as well. I'm going to the gym with Kristen in the morning, then spending the rest of the morning with Kalan; meeting Peter for lunch at Golden Chopsticks, then catching up with Ivette when she gets off work so we can all go to the Asian grocery store. We tried out a lot of really tasty snacks from there a few days ago (and I got some nice Chinese herbal tea as well), so we'll probably try something else tomorrow. I love the ice cream omochi cakes especially.
I didn't get to knit at all today, so I'm going to get a few rows in before I go to bed tonight. Goodnight, everyone.
