Photos are lousy when the kids won't model! (that's a Doodle Pony underneath) I'll work on a better photo.
GOOD THING #2 Karida, of Neighborhood Fiber Company, was running a contest before Christmas to try to help a DC neighborhood win a makeover. By voting in that contest, and letting Karida know by commenting on her blog, I won a prize. What did I win? A sock club membership! Check this out! There's more fibery goodness, friends. I had already purchased my membership, so I will be sharing this prize with you all in the form of some contests as the goodies arrive. (You can cheer now!)
GOOD THING #3 Tomorrow I get Absent-Minded Professor back! He's been at my parents' since Christmas Eve. I'm sure he's been busy beating them at mensch argere dich nicht - which is basically the same as Parcheesi or Aggravation. At Oma and Opa's we actually play on the German game board, though. I have no idea how old the game board is that we use, but I can't remember a time when we didn't have it.
GOOD THING #4 Buddy Bill is making the drive down with me to pick up Absent-Minded Professor, which means he is meeting the parents tomorrow. My parents. (Everyone say "eeeeeek!")
GOOD THING #5 I am loving knitting again (back to #1 and not having pain) and I think Cobblestone Sweater is ready to come out of time-out and become an FO. I think. Wish me luck.
