Need I say more?
On Saturday, I'm going to Blockbuster as SOON as I wake up. My dear Hubby put a deposit on the 2-disc DVD set of Twilight. After purchasing, I will race home and deposit myself on the sofa. I will not move for hours. And hours. And hour upon lovely hour. I'm 35 years old and this saga (and movie) makes me feel as though I'm 17 again. The hotness that is Robert Pattinson (as Edward Cullen) is such a fantastic bonus to this daydream inducing story. Aaaah. I can honestly say that not a stitch will be knit during this movie screening.

Made For: Me
Yarn: 5 skeins Knitpicks Wool of the Andes in Camel Heather
Mods: Pattern called for 19 repeats at 56". My gauge must've been way off because at 19 repeats I was nowhere in the vicinty of 56". So many more repeats for me.

I'm embarrassed to admit that 1. This is the only knitted item I have ever made for my hubby. 2. I started this hat over a year ago. Make that almost 2 years ago. Embarrassment aside, I'm happy with the end result. He has worn it every single day since I finished it. After his initial dismay that this beanie would need to be hand washed, he tried it on and was surprised at how well it fit and realized that my offer to hand wash it for him was a good one. There was a period of worry due to his remark, "Sure I'll wear it if it fits okay and isn't scratchy". I think that's why it took me so long to finish. The prospect of all my hard work resulting in a beanie that would forever sit on the shelf was enough to make me set the project aside for months.. Okay, yes, years. Never mind that...it's done. He loves it. He will be rewarded by possibly receiving another knitted item this year. Heavy stress on the word 'maybe'.

This weekend has been wonderful for my knitting ego. I PLOWED my way through Dahlia. Seriously, I never knit this fast. Not only did I knit at the speed of light, I did it without making any mistakes! Bravo me! (She's not finished yet, fingers crossed I can make it through without a disaster)
I successfully knit my way through 4 inches of the Miranda Cabled Scarf. Again, no mistakes. Whatis happening here? Am I in the Twilight Zone? The team consisting of Knitting, Me and Zippo Mistakes is not usually up to bat!

He kissed me in Target. He held my hand in Michael's. He never complained as I wandered through the aisles of yarn, over and over again. He walked beside me and told me I am "one of those girls who doesn't need to wear make-up" (I'm surely not). Today there were no flowers or candles or romantic music. He's just not that kind of guy. But in his own special way, he has a knack for making me feel like this....
Oh how I love that man of mine.
My yarn damnit! I'm patiently (actually I'm not being patient at all) waiting for 4-skeins of Cascade 220 in Lake Chelan Heather to arrive on my doorstep. I told myself I was on a yarn diet. I lied. As soon as it gets here I will immediately drop whatever I'm doing and start the lovely Dahlia from Knitty. I was inspired by the beauty Knittymuggins recently finished. I only hope mine turns out as lovely. Oooooh I wish that wool would get here NOW!!

*please* excuse my 4-finger forehead. I know it's distracting...try to pay attention to the knitted item only.

Oh and by the by......I am already 12 minutes into keeping one of my New Year's promises to myself. I did an A.M. Yoga program this morning. 12 minutes long. Doesn't sound too impressive does it? If you knew how many times I'd been to the gym in the last 2-years...you'd be very impressed with my 12 minutes of yoga.
