i had so much to say today, but waited until it is so late i'm falling asleep over my keyboard. no photos to speak of today, but tons of progress. while watching supersize me (i may never eat food again -- any kind of food!) and running back and forth from couch to window to oogle the beautiful snow-globey wonder that is mountain snow, i managed to finish the body of my hourglass (to the arm pits) and up to the first sleeve decrease. i made 1/3 of a kitty pi for phoebe, who is not only sick with a cold, but also scheduled for a you-know-what on tuesday (I swear it was not a malicious act on my part to get both of my kitties fixed on valentines day. it was just the only day the vet could make an appointment!). I thought a kitty pi might make her feel better... a cozy place to sleep (and an alternative to my lap). I'm also almost almost almost done with the elfines. two, maybe three more lace repeats and then - finito! I'm hoping to finish tomorrow... but maybe that is too ambitious.
to hold myself to writing about something more serious than the bragging about what i have finished, i've been thinking a lot lately (and inspired by the posts of others) about why I knit. I will write more tomorrow, but i was wondering what brought other people to the craft?
