writing--but of the boring kind

Not much knitting going on... But my thesis is now over 70 pages long! And it's been handed over to my boss, so the monkey is off my back. At least for a day or so, and then I'm sure I'll have a gazillion corrections to make. Then I hand it out to my committee on wednesday, ack!

As for those "anonymous" commenters wanting to know what is the perfect gift for me-- I mean for a knitter... Check if your friend has a Wish List with Amazon. Or JimmyBeansWool.com. One thing I've been lusting after cause it's so damn expensive is a cool bag for my knitting. I used to sneer at knitting bags, thinking someone figured they could make a regular ol' bag, call it a "knitting" bag and overcharge knitters for it. But Lexie Barnes "lady B" bags at kpixie (a really cool online store) are the cleverest and I'd splurge on one of these cuties:





If it weren't for the $120 price tag!! Damn. Maybe my friends should get me a millionaire boyfriend who will keep me supplied in yarn and knitting bags. Or I could become a millionaire myself, if I started manufacturing some of these so-called "knitting bags".
