Whew!

I finished Super Secret project #2! Go check my Ravelry page for photos, since I won’t post them here until after I’ve gifted it.

This past weekend I helped make over 200 raviolis, using won ton wrappers and some incredible filling that contained (among other things) fresh thyme. Which I had picked off its stems the day before. I feel immensely accomplished, and I now have a solid ravioli brick in my fridge, or did until my husband ate it for lunch (I don’t know for certain, but I’m pretty sure he ate it cold, with his hands, biting into it like a giant floppy slice of pizza). I also helped make a tasty cucumber salad and some awesome donuty apple fritter things which I could eat a lot of if I didn’t remember that they are rich enough to make me sick.

And I discovered that Georgia + May + flannel = sauna, and I’ll try to wear something less warm next time.

Yesterday, after the making of the ravioli, I sat on the couch and knit on the SS Project #2 while watching a mediocre Jane Austen film marathon on PBS. And then I watched Gossip Girl (shut up, I’m one of at least thousands), and then we went out to eat with the Chickengoddess and her husband and got some excellent ice cream afterward. And she bought me a book! I am probably going to give in and learn to crochet, but just for this one book and whatever other amigurumi comes my way.

This week is a lot of frenzied doing while I prepare for a road trip to Baltimore next week to go to a dear friend’s wedding. Mostly I have to clean house so that I can pretend my house is always clean when the Chickengoddess comes to cat-sit. I don’t think the cats really care (and in fact, I think they like it messy since it means more places to hide and more papers to sit on).

About HappyGoth

By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish. I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob. Therefore, knitters = angry mob.
