Planning my next UFOs

Trekking is for Necking (close up here) Who doesn't need a 4"x93" scarf made out of sock yarn? While looking for samples of the trekking ombre colors knitted up I found Woll Factory. It looks like they carry the full line of Zitron and Regia along with several other companies and a bunch of Inox accessories I haven't seen. Did you know there is a 75% wool 25% bamboo version of Trekking called Pro Natura? I spent so much time browsing this site. There is an english version but it is ugly, doesn't have everything from the German site and they keep slipping back into German anyway so why bother.

Calorimetry - I think this would be a good use for the Fibre Co. Eden I bought last month. Just need to figure out the right # of stitches to cast-on with the yarn sub and the possible pattern error being talked about on the knitty boards. How cute is this cabled version?

Anemoi Mittens - Me and everyone else, right? I've never actually done any color work so I'm going to take my time picking out the colors for this. Maybe do We Call Them Pirates in the meantime.

December is kicking my ass.

It isn't note worthy because it happens every year. I love Christmas and every year I come up with all sorts of plans and ideas. The problem lies in November. I spend the first half of the month obsessing about my birthday, then there's Thanksgiving and poof the month is gone. This year was particularly bad and I 'm embarrassed to admit that I had a little panic attack on December 1st. I feel like one of those narcoleptic dachshunds that gets so excited that it passes out.

Eye Candy Power Squid Message Super-Meme!

My Eye Candy -

Deno's @ Coney Island

The weather is so bad here that there are two trucks from the power company parked next door waiting for something to fix. Any normal person would find comfort in that. Not me though, I'm sure they will drive away about 5 minutes before we go dark.

Ages ago a certain squid asked about the first waterfall pic I posted. I intended to email a reply but couldn't find her address. I edited the post in question to include the name of the waterfall. I did this awhile ago but forgot to mention it here. Wouldn't want any of my loyal readers to think I ignore them.

Finally (and only because someone demanded so nicely ;) You've all heard about the guy measuring the speed of the meme, right? The post about it is here. Go read about it, link to it on your blog and ping technorati.

That's enough randomness for one day I think.
