But either way it'll be a fun road trip to see family and friends, do a little road trip knittin' on some Christmas goodies and most importantly - get the hell out of the cave for a weekend!!! (We've now started calling the condo the cave. There will be an update soon.)

I've also been on the hunt for a new hat lately...either to buy or to knit. After I spotted this darling hat on Holly, I knew the hunt was over. Soon it'll be mine in this lovely shade of gray in the uber soft baby alpaca chunky from Cascade Yarns.
Gotta go....lots of knitting to do!
(And yes, I still have to finish that damn baby sweater!)

a) trying to tell me he's going to come in and hack me to pieces with his very large saw
b) trying to tell me he's going to come in hack my ceiling to pieces with his very large saw
Since they let me leave without any type of trouble I figured it was option b. It was confirmed when I came home and found the ceiling in my entry way was replaced with a "temporary" one made of plywood and plastic. The construction foreman assured me that it "should" hold up from the big storms that were predicted for Seattle.
"Should," now there's a comforting term to hear from a construction worker.

Lots of discussion went on about the type of new t.v. stand on which to perch this new fancy t.v. They hubby kept saying, I just want it to be minimal - no shelves, no drawers, no cupboards. I kept saying, we need those to store the DVDs, CDs, and etc. I thought, why? Why would you not want a place to store things? So in my usual, reporter ways, I kept saying, "Why? Why not?"
And just like a good reporter who badgers who interviewee until he cracks, I got my answer:
The Hubby: "Because I don't want to open a drawer and find more yarn!"
Me: "Oh. OK. Point taken."
