Should I be doing work-related things?

Why, yes. Why do you ask?

But as long as the calendar still says December, it's hard for me to work up much of a sense of urgency . . . even though our semester begins on January 11, which is insanely early if you ask me (though no one did), and I only have one of my four syllabi ready to go, plus there's an article that needs to be whipped into shape for a journal by the end of next week, and, you know, I should be working up some kind of lather of anxiety about all this pretty soon.

Still, a gal has to have her priorities straight. And mine include knitting, taking long walks in our unseasonably sunny and warm weather with Toshi, catching up on my pile of unwatched Japanese movies, visiting with friends, and cooking to my heart's content. SO THERE.

One more new sweater in the shop: I call this one "Cottage Garden."

The yarn is more amazing than my camera wants to admit; when I get the green right, the poppy red is wrong, and when I get the poppy red right, the cosmos pink is out of whack. But you get the general idea. The spinner, whose Etsy shop name is kindlightstudio, called this skein "Fleur"--it's a handspun single-breed wool (Blue Faced Leicester, or BFL, which is a lustrous, soft fiber that's super-hot right now among spinners and knitters). I've been splurging on handspun yarns in a big way for the past few months, and now I need to rein myself in and knit up what I have instead of buying MOREMOREMOREMORE.

    I think we're getting there. His name may actually BE Avvelenato--I mean, why not? He doesn't seem to want to answer to anything else, that's for…
