Sorry about my absence yesterday. It seemed this:

insisted on becoming this (and yes, it's a king-size bed):

Now I have finished knitting five balls of worsted weight Malabrigo (color "azul profundo") into an enormous wrap and I'm already panicking about what to knit next. Well, of course there's always the socks, but after lugging the Clap around for weeks and weeks...and weeks, I'm just a bit lonely for it's handy bits of easy knitting. A new project will be thought of soon, for there is a glut of yarn to use up. I have some 'vintage' Philosopher's Wool I've been considering for a blanket... D-fly has caught the Mason-Dixon bug. I might have to join her.
The rest of today will be spent waiting around for the new tires to be put on, then there's the whole "gotta feed the kids dinner" thing, and after that I'm hoping to finish the second Mockery sock, but as I'm only at the heel flap (beginning, not end), it's probably too ambitious to think I'll be done tonight... good thing I gave myself until Wednesday. The Clap should be done ('Soaked', blocked, and dried) by then too... I"ll try to get a snap of Phyl wrapped up tight in it. Latah, knittas. C

Awesomeness! I can't wait to see the model shots. I, however, still have 1.5 balls to go. And mine's freakin' sock yarn. WHAT was I thinking?

*heavy sigh*

well the only problem with the Mason-Dixon bug is that mine is all wonky. I'm ignoring it at the moment.
