Golden moles are so cute!

I'm watching Animal Planet. Golden moles are so cute. They're like little puffs of fur without heads or legs or ANYTHING except little bumps that are either noses or penises. Who knows.

Now, onto more knitty matters. I got another card today!

It made me happy. And gave some good advice. ^_^ But I'm confused - the two cards are definitely from two different people. Do I have more than one angel? Not that I'm complaining, of course. Anyway, as far as actual knitting goes, I've been working on that green cat blanket I started, and I have to say it's coming out pretty well. It'll be great, if I can scrounge enough green yarn to finish it. Ah, the joys of knitting with scraps.

While I have been busy with knitting, Xbox, cross stitch, cooking, and all my other stuff - and my nephew Eddie, who's here for a few weeks - I have found a reminder of my wish to learn how to crochet.

Isn't that beautiful? It was done by BlackDog and is just rocking my socks right off. I can't believe the colors in it! SO amazing. I want one. The pattern is from Toast & Marmalade, which isn't on, or I would put in on my wishlist. I have a feeling that if I learned how to crochet, though, I'd how to do that whether I bought the pattern or not. And I don't really like most of the other patterns in there. Although that could just be because they're using such dull colors...I like bright stuff. :)

I was very bitchy today. I'm sorry, Mom! I don't think she reads this, but it can't hurt. I was PMSing. So I went out and got myself a bar of fair trade Divine chocolate from Ten Thousand Villages, where I volunteer and where you should shop because they do good work. I also picked up a bar for my Secret Pal, who I think I will send another package before SP5 ends. I'm thinking sock yarn and Hello Kitty, but I don't have a lot of time - signups for SP6 have already started! And I've signed up, of course. ^_^ I'm going off on vacation tomorrow, though. Up to Lake Mohonk in upstate NY for a week, with my parents and the Edmeister. Should be good. I am looking forward to much swimming, massages, and of course knitting. :) Ah, man, I could use a massage right now...see, this is why I need a boyfriend. Someone to get me fair trade chocolate and give me massages. I'd be a good girlfriend! Hm. Maybe I should have Rod lend me one of hers.


Okay, I'm off to sleep, and the upstate. See you in a week!
