The wireless at home and my notebook have not been getting along. Perhaps because of said notebook's torrid affair with the office's wireless connection? Whatever, it's working now, so here's a wrap up of everything I've had to post for the last few days:
First off, I got my KP order. I cuddled the box, hyperventilated, then dove in. What was in it, you ask?
To being with, I got my size 1 32" circ. WOW. WOWOWOW. Everything everyone said about these needles? Yeah, it's all true. It is (dare I say), the best needle I have ever worked with. I cast on for a sock ASAP:
(This was taken a couple days ago when I order actually came. It's a few inches longer now. This needle KICKS ASS. Yeah.)
The yarn is KP Sock Memories in Gladious (from the stash). I'm using my own "pattern". It's 3x1 ribbing, probably going with a short row heel. It's pretty, and I adore this yarn - soft!
AND! A new yarn! Some dye-your-own (now called Bare) - fingering weight, superwash, wool and nylon. I expected this (since it costs under 6 USD for a skein of 462 yrds), to feel a lot like the other cheaper wool/nylons I've used before - servicable, but kind of twiggy. But it's NOT twiggy AT ALL. I was so very pleasently surprised - it's soft! Really soft! And squishy! I got two hanks, and this one I dyed up today. (It's suppose to be Christmas coloured, but I think I may have overdone the dye on the green end. We'll see - it's still wet.)
SUPERWASHWOOL!SUPERWASHWOOL! It's great, this Swish. I've got more than enough to make Tubey, just dragged these two out to show off the colours. I haven't swatched it yet, but it's very soft in the ball, and the colours match awesomely.
GLOSS! 30-70 Silk-Wool. It's nice. Lovely sheen, the colours are basics, good for anything. (
I'm posting some pr0ny shots of this on the Yarnographers' Forum.
Blogger hates me.)
Wool of the Andes Heathers to make Danica. Personally, I like WotA, even next to the skin (I have a high scratchy-wool-resistance, I guess.)

Blogger still hates me.
That's it for the KP. Yummy.
(Sorry the pics are so dark - I do not have good photograph conditions indoors.)
Behold my collection of Escher prints!
Concave and Convex Metamorphosis Relativity Waterfalls (ETA: Crap, stupid sideways photo. Sorry. :( )
I think I have a couple other Eschers tucked away - probably didn't get pulled out again after we moved.
Dali's Persistance of Memory A piece of my own work. Untitled. The rest are tucked away in a box.
A gratuitous cat photo.
Peace out, yo.
