Oops! (I Did It Again)

Ha! You didn't know I knew any pop culture references, did you? Anyway, in between packing and not packing (aka procrastinating), oh, and work too, I may have accidentally bought some Noro Silk Garden:

I may have accidentally cast on for something too:

Have no fear though, the Gentleman's Sock (with Lozenge Pattern) is not forsaken. I have turned the heel and picked up the gusset stitches, so it's all down hill from here. I will not fall into the same trap you did, Veronique! I know that trap all too well (ahem, Absorba, ahem).

Sunday morning was bright and sunny on the Upper East Side, and I caught these guys having a frolic across the way from my porch:

Can't see? How about now:

Though the babies aren't that small anymore they sure do like to play rough and tumble! Cuteness cubed.

I am trying to cut the coffee out of my diet, or at least reduce it somewhat. I'm two days down so far. (Plus we have a crap-load of tea to drink in the next month.) You can perceive the depths of my coffee-centric-ness by my automatic assumption that the Java colorway referred to coffee. It occurred to me the other day that perhaps it refers to the island.


PS Packing sucks.

Do knitters in your ring make hats for folks that have lost their hair from chemotherapy ? I do. I can send a few pictures. Not a knitter but a looper. Hats replace the hair, insulation and body image while hair regrows. Susan

Yeah, packing basically blows. Just remember to get rid of any crap that you don't absolutely need!!

OMG. OMG. I think I know what that is!! It's going to be so much fun...

I keep meaning to comment: CONGRATULATIONS on the job!!! Though packing does suck (I've started with our new house move), what's on the other end will be awesome. Yay, you!

Oh beautiful Noro, how I love thee. ;-) I'm simply dying of curiosity. What are you knitting? I want to say Lady Eleanor, but I really can't see enough to guess.
