Last night, we went out for dinner with BraveHarlot. That is, I called her on the phone and then absconded with her from the North Avenue MARTA station and took her to Ted’s Montana Grill, where we all ate bison cooked various ways. I got the steak, she the pot roast, and the husband a burger atop a salad. Then we further absconded with her, taking her out for Morelli’s ice cream. I called Jennie up and persuaded *coughforced* her to join us, and we all sat around eating ice cream and knitting until the lightning on the horizon made us decide to go inside. All in all, it was a fantastic evening.

I’m hoping that Wednesday I’ll finish up work soon enough to be able to go to Knitch with them. At the very least I can go to dinner after work (but I’d like to have this happen on time this once).

Due to moving, the camera cable has been misplaced, yet again. So I’ll post photos of projects once I’ve unpacked (it could be a while). However, since I really want to share (and because the ChickenGoddess’s socks look identical to mine, mostly), here’s a representation of the Rivendell socks of Awesomeness:

They sparkle! Seriously. The most beautiful socks in the universe.

[Disclaimer: this is the ChickenGoddess‘s leg, and her sock. I take no credit for her work or genius.]

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.
