Little octopus, knit by me, pattern by Hansi Singh and available on Ravelry.

So I tried ordering a netbook cover made of neoprene from Belkin. It's the wrong size, and the right size isn't available in the states.
I'm still annoyed with Amazon, and none of the others I have been able to find on other websites are either A: not what I want because they load the computer in from the side, or B: not a nice color, or C: waaaay too expensive.

Epiphany: Duh. I can knit one.

String solves many problems.

Yup. It's officially week 1 of Spring Quarter.

I'm on the 4th pint of beer. It's 1:11 in the morning. I've finished the two assignments that are due 1st thing in the morning, but not some of the things that I was supposed to have finished last quarter or over spring break. Bah.

I'll be finishing this beer 'n' goin' to bed shortly.

On the bright side, I'm almoooooost done with my U-Neck Vest.

It's pretty outside, and I'm inside with warm tea. :)

Cathy made banana bread, of which I had several slices for breakfast...or lunch, 'cause I slept in disgustingly late.

I heard one of the chickens making an egg just before I got out of bed. Silly birds, don't you know it's cold and dark?

I finished a pair of socks on Friday, I'm waiting a little impatiently for them to dry. I'm wearing two pair I made right now, one knee high and one ankle high pair. With the silk long-johns I'm feeling very cozy.

I started making a pair of gloves for Bill, like these that I made for Josh and Marie, but without the ring motif, of course. (I don't know if you can see them if you're not on Ravelry, if not I'll put the picture in another LJ post.) Bill's will be a kind of oatmeal/burlap color. I like the Knit Picks Telemark yarn for these gloves, it's really springy and tough without being too harsh to wear.

I finished organizing my yarn stash yesterday, it took all day. I still need to do my book reorganization and deal with the drifts of paper from fall quarter, but I do have a sense of accomplishment about the yarn stash. I wrote down everything I have as I put it away, so I've been putting that into the Ravelry database in an attempt to keep track of what I've got for various projects. For instance, I think I have enough of the hemp/wool blend to make a very nice stripy vest, and I'd almost completely forgotten about that yarn's existence.

Ran across these websites through a StumbleUpon link that [ profile] cerulean_fleur sent to me.

The different groups:
Holy crap, a whole gas station!

Also, I just finished reading a book by James Gee, on the subject of video game learning theory. Check out the man himself giving a synopsis of his findings.

Oh. My. Golly. Leda is so right. I need to make one. It will of course be hers.
