State of the thing.

GOOD: I got a postcard from miscellanny a couple of days ago! It has pretty Yuletide windows and made me flail on the sidewalk. :)

WTF: Alone among major Western nations, the U.S. has refused to sign a declaration presented Thursday at the United Nations calling for worldwide decriminalization of homosexuality.

Oh, America. How classy and grown-up you are. *makes face* Mr. Obama, you cannot take office soon enough for my taste.

ER...? Was up 'til 3:15 last night this morning, actually not reading fic as is the usual reason for my being up at 315AM but because I was finishing socks. Well, okay, I was reading fic (THIS sga_santa fic, to be precise - omgreaditreaditreadit!), but I was also finishing socks.

Though I must stretch them a little, as I think I may have made them a bit too small. Ha ha ha, I hear you laughing, people who have seen my real, wee feet. But yes. It can be done. At some point in the near future I must also go out to Point Grey, as I want to make this hat and need some weird silk/merino stuff that nobody else in Vancouver will admit to selling on their website.

UNCERTAIN: Still waiting on Loans forms, which have apparently been mailed. Which is... good? I think. Probably. Won't know for a few days. o.O

UGH: Still snow outside. Still confused. It is December, right?

Lovely, lovely socks! What yarn did you use? It looks really cushy. I alas have become addicted to both Socks That Rock yarn and Koigu. It has spoiled me to knitting socks for my father with Regia which is the sock yarn he prefers.

It is supercheap Bernat Softee Chunky, as I bought the yarn for wrist warmers and had a ball and a half left over, so I had to do something with it. :) I need to go out and buy more proper sock yarn, I do. I have only a ball of rainbow stuff whose brand I no longer remember.

The socks look good as a pair. My mom is very covetous of your socks.

Ooo! What is the postcard of?

I'm in for an expedition to Point Grey (where ever that may be).

The postcard is of the "Burne-Jones Windows" at the Winchester Cathedral. It's pretty and I'd scan it but I think you've enough torture waiting for other pictures to load, so you can wait 'til you get home to see it. :)

Point Grey's West-West Vancouver, near UBC. Urban Yarns is there.
