That fly that's been buzzing around irritating me? It landed on the coffee table and I whacked it with the package my size-17 needles came in. Die! Die! Hahahaha!

In other news, I've finally bought size-17 needles and some rowan yarn in a luscious red. I've wanted to try it for sometime, but kept sticking to what I already knew. I spent too much at Hilltop Yarn today. Took Jeanne there to buy some needles and to show her how to knit (which seriously took all of 5 seconds, she is one speedy learner). I've hated the scarf I've been knitting for what seems like forever. I was trying to mimic this pattern I'd seen at the store, but I was just flat wrong about the stitches. So I bought some orange and blue yarn to do a hat for my big brother J's birthday. Some giant rowan yarn for a scarf, I'm not sure for who. And I bought some pricey red alpaca yarn and got the nice lady at the store to explain how the hell to knit this scarf (which is twenty billion times simpler than what I was doing).

The size-17 needles (much like Blake's girlfriend's boobs from Survivor) are like novelty-sized. It took a bit to get used to them. My next goal, after these projects, is to take on a more complicated pattern. I've largely focused on pretty multi-colored yarn (if subtly multi-colored, like two shades of grey), stripes, etc. But next, I'd like to do a nice rib or something. I've been lazy and prefer my knitting to be nice and uncomplicatedly mindless.

It's too bad there weren't 6 more flies, then you could have said you killed "7 in one blow."
