I had 3 goals for the evening tonight: run, blog and settle down with a nice bottle of red and my knitting. I didn't get to run (Phil's out for the evening, so I had all the kid duties), but here I am, with a nice glass of Ménage a Trois wine. Like I said, 2 out of 3 ain't bad.
Of course, I had to post about how Honeybee had now become the IT project for it to mysteriously lose some of its appeal. I've been working on the second Zaphod Beeblebrox sock for the past few nights, finished it earlier this evening while the kids were watching a movie. I've been sort of off socks for the past few months, but I think I may be getting my mojo back. I've cast on for the second Conwy sock (teeny tiny cables with black yarn -NEVER AGAIN!), and after that, I'll be free to dip into the stash for something shiny and new! Can't wait.
I've been meaning to share something with you for a few weeks, but I just can't figure out how to work it into a post, so I'm just going to go with it. I was browsing on Etsy a while ago (MAN, that Etsy's a sneaky thing...), checking out friends' favourite items and sellers, etc., when I came upon Skeletal Dropkick's shop. She specializes in hand thrown ceramic ware with a monster/zombie flair, and for some reason I was taken with her stuff, the quirkiness of the items she creates. Anyway, long story short, before I knew it, I had bought this:
It's a French butter crock, and in my defense, I've been meaning to pick one up for a while now (just not, you know, a ZOMBIE butter crock, heh).
You stick the butter in the top portion (in this case, the monster's skull cavity), and pour water in the bottom portion, and this way you get room temperature butter that stays fresh. Plus, every time you have toast or bread, your husband asks you "Would you like that with or without monster brains?" (I know, I'm easily amused).
OK, I'd better get crackin'! This wine isn't going to drink itself, you know.
Happy Knitting Everyone!
