8-pointed Star

Drive-by Update

My first attempt at a Möbius went awry -- when I bound off the edge I discovered I had introduced two twists, not one. It's still wearable and I suppose that's the important thing. I cast on a second one last night, this time using Cat Bordhi's Möbius cast on. We shall see if this scarf turns out correctly -- the directions said to MCO 115 stitches and I thought I did. But when I knit the first row, I lost count after 120 stitches -- before seeing the stitch marker.

Last Friday was the Farmington Community Band's Valentines Dinner Dance. It went well, I got a lot of knitting done, and I even managed to take a few photos. I have not, however, managed to look at them yet. Perhaps tonight or tomorrow, but not tomorrow night. Tomorrow night we're going to see The Apartment at the Redford. I'm looking forward to it.

Last Saturday I skipped Nia (what with not getting home until after 1 a.m. and not actually falling into bed until after 4:00). If we did more than sleep, I can't recall what it was. No, I take that back. That was the day we had a can of diet soda explode in the kitchen. I needed to mop up the mess fast, and the quickest thing I could grab were the bath towels. So after mopping up the spill, and really mopping the floor, I had laundry to do.

Sunday was more laundry, followed by a trip to Costco to visit the phone kiosk. T-Mobile had a Valentine's Day promotion going on and I'm now the very happy owner of Samsung Galaxy S II.
