Tomorrow is the Sheep to Shawl at Black Sheep Gathering. I will be weaving from 9am to 2pm (with hopefully a shawl to show for our efforts). And five lovely friends will be spinning the yarn. I'm so excited!

I am queen of forgetting one single ingredient in my cooking. So today I made pumpkin pie. How hard can it be? Premade crust. Pumpkin in a can. All the ingredients are listed RIGHT THERE....

The pie looks lovely. I cooked it just right (after the fact, because I figured I might as well practice cooking it right even though I realized early on there was one pretty major deficiency in this pie). Did pretty crimps in the crust (can't screw up pre-made crust. It ain't great, but it ain't crud either, so that'll do). Stuck the toothpick in to check if it was done (it wasn't) so then I licked off the goo stuck to the toothpick and thought ... hmmm, salty?

Yes. Indeedy. I forgot to put in SUGAR.

Sigh.

Had an optical migraine earlier.. non-painful but annoying. Only now it has left me with a brutal (non-migraine) headache and nausea. Joy.

Thanks so much! I've been running around going "SQUEE! TWILL!" all day. Which makes up for the bear of a time I had warping the loom.

I hate binding off shawls. But I love when they are done! Even better? Before vs after BLOCKING!! (Must remember to take pics tomorrow.)

I have a new sock out! Check out this awesome online sock-mag: http://www.thesockreport.com. Mine is called "Devonian". Lots of other great patterns, too!

Today, I contracted a virus (on my laptop). That bugger was such a pain in the butt that reformatting/reinstalling the OS turned out to be the easier thing to do... which isn't saying much.

I wonder if Mom can stand to have two slightly different socks. I've frogged this first one down past the gusset and again from half-way through the leg back to the ankle. I REALLY do not feel like frogging it again to tinker with the way I did increases on five rows of sock. By the time I finish them, I will have knit three-and-a-half socks, but only have a pair to show for it!

Of course the alternative is to knit an identical sock that I'm not sure I really like the increases on. They're not bad. They're just not ... perfect.
