Lorna's Laces Worsted: More Yarn Than You Think

Okay, last post until after the Inauguration (posting + dial-up = no fun), and not much to report.

One, the Sisterhood is starting a S&B on the last Saturday of each month, beginning in February. Yay! I've figured out how to take Saturday busses to get out there, if need be, or I can mooch a ride and send the spouse to Game Parlor. Yay!

Two, I'm trying to be good, food-wise. I've almost successfully eliminated fast food (I'm hoping Qdoba doesn't count, but I think it does.)... and then our Vending Guy puts these in the machine Tuesday:

I mean, what the heck??? Tasty Burger King Onion Ring-like Objects right where I can get to them at any time?? Grrrr. Not fair. ... On the other hand, I resisted until Thursday, and spent the rest of the day feeling nauseated, so the temptation is removed.

Three, two skeins of Lorna's Laces worsted? Makes a heck of a lot more than a little neckwarmer. I used exactly two skeins of Noro for my neckwarmer... for this now-it's-a-scarf, though, I think I've used at least half the yarn at this point. Here it is on Monday:

It's about a third again as long now, and there's STILL YARN LEFT. On the other hand, I'm going to have a lovely warm scarf that goes with my winter jacket.

Four, I finally got around to the cartooning thing. Knitting related, posted over here. The other goal is to have at least one cartoon a week in 2009.

Everyone have a good long weekend (if the Inauguration affects you), and stay warm!
