Eh, it's Monday

Well, I didn't finish my Blackberry this weekend like I hoped. But I got darn close. I have several more rows of ribbing to do and then some more ends to weave in. Then, I'll be done. Next, of course, is Dayflower scarf. But I've also been pondering other projects as well. After dayflower, I'm going to knit a few things for the Rescue Mission like I said. Maybe I can get some people at work to donate some of their homemade winter wear, too (we have quilters in our office, someone's got to either knit or crochet). I feel bad asking though, we already have a donation box for the SPCA, the food bank, and a box for the Tree of Love thingie for the Salvation Army. With all the goings-on in the world I think there's going to be some definite donor fatigue this season.

Anyway, here's what I'm contemplating for future projects:
  • Broadstreet Mittens from Knitty - I love my mittenettes but the weather around will soon start requiring more coverage. Better jump on the bandwagon.
  • Big-Bad Baby Blanket from Stitch n' Bitch 1- for my future neice/nephew due in May
  • Hooded Baby Bath Towel- also for future neice/nephew. I saw this cute thing on a recently discovered free knitting pattern directroy call Knitting Pattern Central. i love free patterns.
  • Thomas the Tank Engine something- I'm thinking a kid-size blanket with the characters on it (somehow). This is my own brainchild, and I will hopefully be done in time for my Thomas-crazed nephew's b-day early next year.
That's about all I can think of to yack about at the moment. But here's one of the... more interesting thoughts I had recently I'd like to share with y'all:
"Technically, shouldn't girls who wear size 0 be invisible?" Am I alone on this?

You are quite generous with the baby knitting! I've made the Broad Street Mittens before, about a year ago, I can help if needed.

OH my God.. that was too funny. I almost spit out my soda! I'm reading along about your projects (can you find a link for the big bad baby blanket pic? I wanna see it!) Anyway.... innocently reading along till I get to the size 0 thing....

SO True! You are too wise..! Obviously a mistake has been made.. I think we need to get rid of the zeros since they shouldn't technically exist.. so if any of YOU out there ARE afraid.. be VERY afraid! ::laughing::
