Things About Which I Am Happy

Knitting , More about me than you ever wanted to know , TV and Movies , Wheeee!

It's Monday, so it's time for Participation Positives!

1. Spring! It's finally feeling like spring out. It's going to be in the fifties all week, perhaps even getting up to the sixties on Thursday and Friday. I do know that we are pretty likely to get another snow before it's all over, but I'm enjoying it for now.

2. Comments! Wow, lots of you commented on the socks yesterday. Thanks! Just to clarify, I never thought that that socks themselves were ugly, but the first picture I posted of them was all dark and made them look oddly shaped. I think the pictures yesterday show them off to much better advantage.

3. Branching Out! It's done. I even just about memorized the pattern by, oh, the last two or three repeats. Yeah. It's nice, though. It's currently deciding where it wants to hang out while blocking, and then we'll have a picture for you.

4. Clapotis! It's started. The yarn is behaving a bit better than it was while winding, thank goodness, although it is a bit splitty. But OH so soft. It is also looking less pink than I expected, but not necessarily in a bad way. Pictures soon. I'm on repeat increase 2 or 3 or 4 or something. I'm just looking forward to getting to the straight rows so I can see what it looks like when the stitches start dropping.

5. Dr. Who! Are you all watching this? It's wonderful. I can't recommend it highly enough. Hilarious and snarky and British. And boy, is the doctor cute. Too bad he won't be there next season.

6. Taxes! Well, not taxes themselves. But I finally did my taxes this weekend and it was extremely painless, and I'm getting lots back. Wheee. And yes, I'm already negotiating with myself about how much I get to spend on yarn.

Taxes are keeping me in yarn. Of course, this time of year they're keeping me away from it, but you can't have everything.

I'm really liking Dr Who. What? This one won't be around next season? Why not? I've got the old ones on backorder from Netflix.

Tax refund = free money
Free money = yarn!

Taxes - dreadful thing! If you did them yourself - then take the money you would have paid someone like H&R and claim that money as your "yarn" money. Works for me every time...

Congrats on getting your taxes done. I meant to do ours a couple of weeks ago, but still haven't gotten there yet. The socks look great, by the way, and congrats too on finishing Branching Out. I am about 20 repeats into mine and have gotten most of the pattern memorized, but still have to look from time to time. Enjoy yarn shopping!
