So sleepy...

I can't believe I'm about to say this, but at the tender age of 25, I think I am too damn old to stay up and go to the midnight showing of anything. At least, I should take a freakin' nap before I go!

I didn't take a nap before the midnight showing of Harry Potter because I was at Stitch 'n' Bitch, finishing this:

This was the best picture I took, but it's still hard to see the golden snitch there at the bottom.

And of course, today (when I go to work, after lunch) I will be wearing

Two socks! That actually, really match! That I made!

This is pretty cool.

Of course, the universe has its little ways of evening things out. Even though I ended the day with two finished objects, went to see a fun movie, and got these in the mail (full of birthday presents!), not everything could go my way. In hauling these big, exciting boxes into my apartment, I did this:

Oops. Guess I should have made two trips.

Even though it's a pretty nasty-looking bruise (the the photo doesn't begin to convey the swelling), it doesn't interfere with my knitting too much. Something to be grateful for!

You lunatic! You should have gotten some big lug to carry those heavy boxes for you, or at least carried them separately. But now you do have a wound to show off for a little sympathy.

Love your snitch cloth. I printed the pattern off this AM and will probably make it this weekend. I can't wait to see the movie! Friday afternoon, I intend to go straight from fixing Grandma's kitchen chairs to the theater even if I'm the only geeky adult without a kid in the place.

Great socks!

Love, Mom

I know I'm a lunatic. I just have a strange hatred for making multiple trips from my car to my apartment. It's prettier colors--and less swollen-today.

I was really happy with the HP cloth. And I'm sure you won't be the only adult without a kid--the theater last night was full of us!
