On the first day of December, I found this wonderful thing on the Yarn Harlot's blog. Hand repair soap for crafters and knitters. Brilliant.
I frogged the poncho I started for youngest sprog last night, but finished two long skinny novelty scarves to give away as Christmas presents. I seem to be lacking in the brainpower to do anything but the most mindless, simple knitting. Tis the season to watch endless repeats of ER and knit easy things, apparently. I might give the poncho another shot later on tonight, or I might wait. I'm making the "Mellow" poncho from Knitty but substituting a soft pink chenille and a black and pink novelty yarn for their recommended yarns. Youngest sprog doesn't want a poncho like everyone else's at school, you see. I figure this will be good and unique.
