It may be January, but I'm still trying to wrap up my year-end stuff. Like our annual letter. And sorting through the apparently thousands of photos I shot in 2009. After culling and arranging into galleries, I wrote out ten CDs worth of photographs. Yow.

I've also been working on another crochet afghan. It's a simple ripple pattern (http://home.att.net/~susanBinKC/patterns/ripple.html) and I've been trying to do three rows (one band of color) every night. I figure I'm currently between one-quarter and one-third done.

In other news, yesterday I activated an account at AO3. Eventually I'll back up my fic there.

Now that I understand the pattern, it's going well. Other than last night, when I realized on the last stitch of the third row (i.e., the stitch where I swap colors) I had just spent two hours with the wrong color yarn. I unraveled my mistake and started over with the correct color. This is what I get for (a) working when I'm tired and (b) not having sufficient light in the living room. The colors aren't *that* close, but with inadequate light it's hard to tell color A from color B.

I did get your PM and am actually logged in now to send it to Maddie. This past week has been frustrating as there just hasn't been time to do everything I want and/or need to do. And there's no catching up this weekend -- we'll be at a SF convention.

I'll fill you in on AO3 (and as you can see, I haven't figured out how to format their acronym either) once I know what's what.
