Check out Lauries's mittens! That fish! It's cute. It's just so hard for a fish to be cute. And those cables! Now I'm jazzed to knit mittens, which is good, since I'm signed up at Ann's to knit six pairs. (June 11th has the details but she's got mittens from then on.)

(And a cool button Mouse designed.).

I haven't knit a stitch since Tuesday night. (And shhhh, I knit while driving home that night. The road was deserted! It's completely straight road! It was cool. I only did for a block or two.) My row count on The Shell's Jacket I-Cord is off. I'm thinking of knitting it to the measurement it needs to be and then picking up the stitches and measuring the darn thing all. the. freaking. time. The stitch count is fine. Grrr. Luckily it's just 3/3 cable and it won't get thrown off if I have to knit more rows than the gauge suggests. Ha! Finally buying too much yarn pays off.

Blearg. I woke up with a migraine at 4am this morning, took a Maxalt, went back to sleep, woke up headache free, but I feel like I'm underwater. Clearly too much housework yesterday.

Oh, and here's a great timewaster brain work out: Make A Word.

If you're in the Contra Costa County area of California, check out the CCTimes TV Critic, Chuck Barney's blog and post. Heck, if you're from anywhere, post. I think so far, I'm it.

Speaking of TV, Morgan Spurlock's 30 Days is back on Wednesday nights 10pm FX. And Stargate SG1 and Stargate Atlantis are on the Sci-Fi Channel tomorrow at 9pm and 10pm. The crossover episode last week on SG1 was great. Atlantis, not so much. I guess we're getting a six month hiatus between seasons? Bah.

Oh, and Skein Lane in El Cerrito is closing! Waaaaa.

Keep a good thought for Rebekah's Nick. They've had a really bad run lately.

Hey! No knitting while driving! It's okay at a stoplight, but I want you to be safe out there! Lecture over.

heh, I was playing MaW the other day - and couldn't get more than 60% (of people have done better than you) .. which made me sad :o( But anyway, cool mittens yes, and her cat looks like my Sallycat melted too! Luckily I know she is at home meowing 'woe is me' about having three kittens in the house!

Thanks for the link to Laurie's mittens - wow...

Bummer about the migraine... hopefully a good night's sleep will clear away the after effects.

Ugh! I did 4 pairs of mittens in 2 weeks last year for Christmas... Hey, take care of the migraine, hope you're feeling better. That's what you get for cleaning too much!

I'm trying to figure out which is gutsier: knitting while driving, or admitting that you knit while driving. . .

Poor you with a migraine.

Knitting whilst driving? Talk about multitasking.
