I had some yarn left over from the laptop case that I made, so I decided to try my hand at a basketweave pattern, as this is something I've been wanting to figure out for a while. It's SO easy, so I finished up this neckwarmer in a few days. I think it would be really fun to use a bunch of different colours, and I tested a row to see if it was possible... theoretically I guess it is, but I'd have to buy a bunch of yarn that I don't have space for.

I was going to give this to someone else but I think I'll keep it for myself. It's MY favourite colour after all, and my old one's getting a little ratty. Or at least full of food-crumbs which is essentially the same thing.

In other news, I finished my Frasier marathon and I feel a little lost...

Rough Week

I found out this week that the old man has snuggled his last. I wish I could find the one poem I wrote about him, but let me just say it was about one of those many moments that were too perfect to share with anyone else. We were a team, him and I. I'll miss him terribly.

In other news, I've finally set it up so I can watch The 4400 while doing homework. She's a small one, but she does the trick. I'm so proud of this laptop. It's such a sport. I almost named it Tugboat, but knew it would be Tug for short, and thought maybe that wasn't an appropriate name for a laptop... Maybe I'll stop anthropomorphizing things and just get a new dog.

To cheer me up though, in a karma sort of way, Katie's package arrived this week! More on that later, but I was most amused by this addition. Sure the little figurine is Dutch. It says 'Holland' right there! I even have one in my house. But this one? Straight from Iran.

As a last point, my wine is on its last legs, but that just removes all guilt for drinking it on a Tuesday night. It IS Tuesday today, right?
