The word is widely used and is regarded as too harsh and over-the-top. Really, though, it's not. Hate is a true feeling. "Despise" is more or less the same but a bit more elegant. It's not good to hate things, situations, people, but it sure does make you feel better when you know you hate something. It's even better when you hate but it is undetected. I've learned one thing recently. It's something a certain someone has been telling me for years. Always--not just sometime, but always--say less than necessary. Hating in silence makes an even bigger difference.

Knitting to be displayed later today or tomorrow.
Happy halloween.

Not been writing much...

I have become my own disapproval: I have been lurking more than writing!

Additionally, I've been watching TV more than knitting AND working more than not working.
Hmmm.... Decidedly, I need to take control of this situation.

No more lazy. It's cold out--gotta move to keep alive.

Proof that I was really on vacation... :)

Big Noro Scarf

I know, I know... It's been a few days. I've been on vacation...
Pictures of my New York trip are soon to come. For now, feast all eyes on the new scarf. It's been a while since I made a scarf.

The light in the pic doesn't do the colors very much justice. First time for fringe...

Yarn: Noro Iro (3 skeins) 75% Wool, 25% Silk, 3x3 rib
Started: October 10 (late p.m.), 2006
Finished: October 14, 2006
Length: About 68"

Took a break from the almost-finished Somewhat Cowl to complete a quickie project. I still can't wait to finish the Somewhat Cowl! Ahem--October 6 came and went, didn't it? Well....

I've somehow gotten out of the habit/neurosis/freak/pattern of checking the room/bed/pillow/sheets for spiders before I sleep. NO MORE.... Those days are over.

I wish I had a video of myself for this event!!

Oops, the only thing I had in the room to kill it was... Knitting Rules by Yarn Harlot. Sorry. I cleaned it up, though.

Now I have to go back in there....

What did you do today?

Here's my day:

Very LATE edit:
Another thing I did today...


Add one more thing to the list of FO's:

I made this one for Ewa from Poland. I hope she likes it. Definitely her colors. She's leaving tomorrow. I can't get enough of this bird fabric. Love it. Gonna buy more during my trip to NY this week.

Ewa, Kamil, (me), Peter, and Konrad. HH sucks but we still had a good time! Be safe.
