I am still calling this the Calmer Aran because I haven’t given any thought to naming the design. Maybe I’ll call it “Serenity Now!” Heh.
Despite a weekend of feeling like something I trod on and subsequently scraped off the bottom of my foot, I did manage to finish the back of this sweater.
If it looks a tad short to you that is because this baby will have a rather wide shoulder strap extending up from the sleeve.
In a frenzy of self-promotion, I would like to point out to you that both Socks From the Toe Up and Toe Up Socks for Every Body are available for pre-order in the Kindle edition. Follow the links on each title. According to their pages on amazon, they will be released on January 19, 2011. I checked the Barnes & Noble and the Sony Reader sites as well, but they are not yet listed there for the Nook or the Sony Reader. But they will be.
Back to Business
It has been colder than usual here for days. My heat is on, and I have even been wearing a hat on my commute. Both signs of the apocalypse being imminent, I believe.
And Miss Lucy is loving basking on the back of the couch under a lamp.
A fun fact about Lucy. She really really hates it when I talk on the phone. During a phone call last night she kept trying to climb up my arm to get to the phone (presumably to kill it). After the call ended, she jumped down, ran over to her fuzzy rat, and beat the crap out of it.
Note to myself: must remember to wrap Lucy’s presents.
