After a long slightly unhappy night, I woke from a dream feeling better than I have in a long time. This is amazing because my sleep schedule it totally messed up, it's been years since I slept like a normal person and there have been long stretches of time when I just didn't dream. Yeah...
Then I found the above waiting for me at the post office. It's the main color for this sweater, which I'm knitting at some vague point in the future. A wonderful friend went to WEBS for me the day after Christmas. She'll be sending along the contrasting color when she doesn't have a house full of happy holiday people. The lovely people at WEBS did not have enough of the main color in the same dye lot on hand when she was there. So they sent it along to me at their expense. I couldn't be happier. I got more than I'll need in the main color because running short would make me cry.
The other day, my darling Trish friended a sock pattern and I feel in love with it. Naturally, I ran off to Amazon where I located the out of print booklet (see above) that contained said pattern. I totally blame Trish and she knows it. She even claimed to be okay with it because that's just how good she is.
Everyone orders out of print pattern booklets in the middle of the night, right?
I found a cheaper chicken listing and ordered it because I do run that seasonal footware thing and shit...

Ending a horrible year on an up-note is what I needed. Now to keep it going, yeah?
