In addition to my AMAZING pillow, I started Fetching from Knitty. I love the fact that it uses cables for shaping, but i agree with Michael that the holes around the thumb look less than great. I did a duplicate stitch (sort of) to cover those bits o' nasty up. I'm blocking it now, but here's pic of the WIP:
The yarn is a special colorway (the name escapes me, I'll post it when i get to the center of the ball) from Woolbearers, that i bought simply because I loved the colors. I know you can't see the cables but, the colors are so amazing that i don't think it matters much.
The MLC blanket is till slowly moving along. I'm on the third block of color and there is still no end in sight. I'm really bad at math and it turns out that i need like 8 more balls of Sonata to finish it. That day is still very far away, so I'm in no rush to order the rest.
I actually got some reading time in this week, and i finished Choke by Chuck Palahniuk. It was a Xmas gift that I finally got around to finishing up, and i loved it. In true Palahniuk style, the book deals with self-destructive agressiveness (transgressional fiction), and some pretty colorful subject matter. The book was truly shocking and the plot twist (which was to be expected, after reading several of his books) blew my mind. I don't want to give anything away to the people who haven't read it, so i don't want to go into detail because the story is seamlessly linked together. I will warn you that it's not for anyone who has problem with taboo situations, it really seems to cross the line of what people think maybe grotesque.
On Thursday, we went to Great Adventure. It was a lot of fun! I haven't been in maybe 6 years. As far as the newer rides went, we didn't want to stand in line for hours on end. We opted for the older less appreciated rides like Congo Rapids (where we got soaked), Houdini's Great Escape, Rolling Thunder and The Great American Scream Machine! I have a picture of us on it, but blogger is acting up :-( After a soaking ringing wet day of $9 hamburgers, I didn't get a chance to post, but it was worth it. We didn't take our camera, so i don't have any of the pictures yet. We got an especially cool one with Daffy Duck.
Today is the only day I have to clean, so i had better get moving...
