there aren't any pictures in this post

Before I actually talk about knitting, I must tell you that this is a special day for me. I hear you asking why. I shall tell you.

Today, Blogger remembered me. Today, Blogger recognized that I had checked that little box on the sign in page that says "Remember me" and actually did it. Maybe it was some sort of test. If you are persistent (or just naively hopeful) enough to click that box eleventy zillion times, even though Blogger never, EVER remembers you, the eleventy zillionth and one time you click it, it grants your wish. Hooray!

Ok. Anyway.

Since today is the first day back to classes, I shall choose today to pout about Christmas break being over. It seems fitting. The total knitting output for the month of December was as follows:

1 lap blanket
1 pair of socks
1 scarf
1 pair of mittens
1 other pair of socks, which I wore today and realized are too big, so they will have to be frogged and reknit

The first four items on that list were Christmas gifts. So, the majority of the knitting in December happened before Christmas, a period during which I was extremely busy. So the question remains: what in the world was I doing for two weeks in which I had no obligations?

Sorry, that sounded really cliffhanger, like I was going to give you some fabulous answer. Wrestling Arctic Musk Oxen! Tap Dancing With Giant Tortoises! Using Capital Letters Inappropriately!

The truth of the matter is, I kept doing things that weren't knitting compatible, like ice skating and sledding (although you shouldn't think for a minute that I didn't try to think of someway to make those activities knitting compatible). There was also a fair amount of sleeping, which, as we all know, is an activity in direct competition with knitting. And, actually, I have this Nantucket Jacket (Interweave Knits, Winter 2006) sitting here that only needs one more sleeve cap and a back, so maybe I've been more productive than I think.

I'll stop rambling today and leave you...well, I was going to leave you with a picture, but Blogger is being stupid. So I'll just...go...awkwardly...
