Avalanche!!!!

Now I can be a cluttered person at times but this really is a bit much...



See the slanted piece of wood next to the desk? It's attached to a small cabinet. It, the cabinet and a small but very cherished collection of action figures, knick knacks and toys used to be resting on top of the desk. Thursday night after getting a check with some extra expendable income we were expecting in the mail, and after finding out I'd only have to work a half day on Friday our beloved desk and toys and collection decided to somehow all implode on itself when we tried to hook the husband's laptop into the cable modem. Miraculously, the work laptop, the home computer, home monitor, external hard drive, printer, etc. all escaped without a single scratch. However the toy collection and our sanities were given a bit of a shake up. And well the afternoon off from work, and that little bit of expendable income of course went right out the window since we knew I'd have to go right to Staples the next day and get something to replace the 14 year old pile of IKEA particleboard we had probably entrusted way too much of our life to. But I think I did ok.





Aah, order and organization has been restored. Along with order and organization there's a lot of spring green around here lately. I'm starting the plants for the Recession Garden inside from seeds. They've just begun to poke through the dirt a little, I think I'll have a really good picture of them for you next week, at the moment they look mostly just like a box of dirt. Other green things: the back of the Central Park Hoodie is done.



Pretty! And then I have this hat that I've started but I'm not exactly sure where it's going.



A very loosely based amalgamation of the Twiggy Bobble Hat and Le Slouch this is my current traveling project. Knitting the Misti Alpaca Worsted stockinette in the round is lucious enough to make me enjoy knitting it alone. I think this is going to be one of those slouchy, baggy rasta type hats you're seeing everywhere that I'm probably too old to wear at this point. But still it's so fun. I keep re-naming it. On Ravelry it's Slouchy Mc Slouchington. Sometimes is Slouch-o-rama. Sometimes it's Slouchilicious. Either way, at least I'm having fun knitting it. And re-naming it constantly. That should count for something...

I like the new desk. And weren't we all saying how you would be the first to finish the pattern?...

If you think that is cluttered, I hope you never see my desk.
