In the land of the living.

So, that barfing flu was actually probably food poisoning. I was feeling much better the next day (DH swears it was because it was SnB day) but he and The Bug got some cold/flu thing that still has them feeling ucky. Good thoughts for me that I don't get it, cuz UGH.
Tomorrow, our company is moving my department to a brand new, shiny happy people facility. We go from offices to cubes, but I don't care, because the new place is blocks from my house. Hooray, riding the bike to work! YAY! Anyway, since all of my office things will be in transit, I get to work from home for the day. This means I will get to catch up on the laundry while working. I can't tell you how much I am looking forward to being caught up on the laundry.
Last night during the second daily viewing of Cars (DH does love him some Pixar) and Criminal Minds, I cast on for Clapotis. The yarn is even lovelier knitted up than in the skein, if possible. I lurve it.

Softly shimmering little triangle of yarny goodness.

Jessie wasn't kidding when she said it stank, though. Anyone know how to make silk smell better after dyeing, because OMG, it's pretty rank.

Oooh, and I forgot that I read The Conjurer's Bird, by Martin Davies. Excellent book! I loved it. Good mystery, good adventure. Loved it. Buy it, read it.

How sweet to see a little, baby Clapotis! Makes me want to cast on for another one! :-)

I need to make another Clapotis, too!

Don't feel bad about the smell of the silk. It was twice as bad before the re-dyeing!

A shorter commute is worth its weight in gold.

Glad to hear you're feeling better at least!

That is one cute moose. Silk smells? Well, it is basically bug vomit.

I sometimes put stinky yarn in a ziploc food bag with a lavender scented fabric softener sheet and leave it overnight. Voila! No sink. My recycled sari silk smelled absolutely vile (I was convinced it smelled like sweat) and I bagged it and then it was much better.

Of course, you realize that the english teacher meant STINK, not sink.
