I was going to work on the Harry Potter scarf, but Sassy decided that lying on me for eight hours while I slept wasn't enough together time, so now she needs to sit on me while I sit at my desk. I do most of my knitting sitting at my desk, actually. I like to knit while I listen to podcasts, but I don't have an iPod, so I listen to them on my laptop. I like to think of my laptop as my really big iPod...

It'd be fun to post pictures of the Harry Potter scarf and some other things I have going, but I don't have a digital camera either. I borrowed my roommate's to post pictures of my stash, but most of the time, when I think I might want to borrow her camera, it's at times when she's probably asleep, like right now, or yesterday at 5AM. My impulses need to get on schedule with everyone else. Actually, I'm supposed to be getting a digital camera-my grandmother bought me a very small digital camera for Christmas, but it was so small that it didn't have its own drivers, and, of course, the drivers included on the CD were Windows only. We called the company but they don't do anything for Macs (dorks) so the camera went to my little sister and my mom said she could actually find me a more versatile digital camera on eBay for the same price. I hate to pester her about it though, so I have no idea how that search is going.

I have to say a big "Thank you!" to Marji, who is donating, to my knitting cause, some Jo Sharp DK wool, intended for a sweater project. Marji has a very large, beautiful stash, and on Flash Your Stash day offered to donate yarn to someone with a needy stash. I shamelessly sent her a link and she decided that I qualify. Thanks Marji! I am thinking about making this cardigan. It should be exciting.

Ahh the cat has decided I am no longer interesting so now I can knit! Huzzah!

you should finally be getting the yarn today ;)
That cardi looks great, and the gauge is right. I've got some Rowan wool-cotton so I know what it feels like, and I think the substitution is a v good one.
And great that you found something to do with all those balls of yarn. Sounds like a fun project.
