Look at my awesome sock cube from Schrodinger Originals! It’s adorable and I can’t wait to fill it up with wooly socky goodness. Which brings me to my next point … I made a (couple) of orders with The Loopy Ewe during the Halloween sale. Oops. Let’s just say that my yarn budget is blown well into 2009. But I’ll have some truly awesome sock yarn to show off soon.
Unless I am consumed by shame and attempt to hide it all in my closet as if this most recent lapse in financial responsibility never occurred. (As if one can buy anything on a grad student stipend without feeling the doom of impending financial collapse and a lifetime living in one’s parents’ basement looming.)
p.s. I did notice that the election happened, even sent in my absentee vote on time (I missed my very first presidential election in 2000 because of postal delay to Germany; luckily not the case with NJ), and am pleased with the result. But, really, let’s just focus on the knitting, as I am much more qualified to speak on that subject without making an utter ass of myself. (Anymore than it is possible to talk about knitting without seeming somewhat unhinged to the uninitiated.)
