Thanks to the random number generator, our winner is Rachel, of Knitting and nerdiness. Rachel, e-mail me your addy at JTheaker AT sc DOT rr DOT com and I'll get it in the mail to you. I underestimated the yardage, so I'm throwing in some other homespun for you.
I'm already a week late in getting my Etsy shop up and running, according to my mental calendar. And it might be later. Real life is biting me in the ass and keeping my head above water has been hard. But I did dye some yarn this week, and I am getting my act together. Really. I swear.
Knitting while reading has also bitten me in the ass, and I'm pulling out two rows of the Russian Prime (taking a break from the annoyance to blog, actually) and giving it another go.
Reading a book on art history, since I finished the one on Chinese art history, and I've come to an interesting realization: I don't give a shit about the fine arts. I wanna know about the DECORATIVE arts. (I blame this on my mother, who was an extremely practical woman, and it has apparently rubbed off on me.) So I'm skimming. But I keep finding more and more inspiration for more and more knitting patterns. I'm going to be writing up a pattern for an imitation of celadon porcelain in the next couple weeks, so possible test knitters, watch this space.
And, by request, a photo of the Goober:
