Okay, Back to Work Tomorrow

I crammed in the maximum amount of fun possible here at the end of my vacation. First off, I finished that Uncreative Noro Striped Scarf in the waning minutes of 2008. Then, early in 2009 (like 12:05 am on January 1) I decided it needed to be longer so undid the bind off and and added, oh, 18 more inches. Here it is:

It looked really beautiful in the snow on the day we went camping. No really, it was sort of camping: we visited friends who have a very rustic vacation cabin - no electricity, no water, wood stove for heat and an outhouse.

Back in the Big City, I visited this store and picked up my xmas present from John - a copy of Charted Sweaters That Talk Back. This is more of a book about knitting and not a a book of patterns but you sure get some ideas about patterns from reading it.
