That damn husbeast.
The husbeast has known I'm under the weather, and so when he ran out for bread tonight, he picked up ice cream, too. This is a new Ben&Jerry's flavor, Creme Brulee. It's very good, but very rich and very sweet. I've been avoiding fat and sugar since I started working out, and it's to the point that lots of sweets make me kind of gaggy. Which doesn't mean I'll quit eating it; I'll just eat it in smaller doses. It's possible I may become the only person in the world to get four servings out of one carton of ice cream, like the container says I should.
He got me a candy bar, too. Chocolate with hazel nuts. My favorite.
Yet again, I have given up on finishing Innsvinget. I put the sleeve on a holder and cast on for the sleeve of Tut Tut today.
That's what I've got so far. I'm doing bell sleeves, but they're not REALLY dramatic, just a bit of drape from the wrist. As you can see I've already got a good bit done; it'd be nice to finish up one of these sweaters so I can start on the Christmas knitting.
The doily is finished, and the silly gift is all done except for some I-cord. I love the idea of I-cord, and the structure and appearance of it. The only thing that sucks is the actual knitting. So as usual I'm putting it off. Imagine, me, putting something off. Shocking.
Tomorrow is another trip to the gym (to burn off the Creme Brulee trying to stick to my ass), and then a pool party with some of the husbeast's co-workers. We got the Baby a life jacket. We'll take the camera. I might put on a bathing suit.
Should be interesting.
