Going in to see my supervisor today. FINALLY! I will sleep better after this meeting, I believe.

Still haven't decided what to make for the staff party... I need to have a plan by Sunday. I went out and bought some washable worsted-weight yarn in an amazing grape purple color; a color we're seeing a LOT of in the store right now. I'm thinking of making just plain mittens with it, but the mitten pattern I've been using is really long and slow. It's knit on dpns and a teeny tiny guage, which makes them beautiful and warm but very time-consuming.

I'm on the lookout for a good/interesting mitten pattern in crochet. Crochet is ever so much faster; and also more yarn efficient, I think. I could possibly make a matching hat & mitts with that one "super saver" ball!

Tonight, T and I are having dinner with my sister and her husband. It was her hubbie's bday like, 2 weeks ago and tonight is the first night we've been able to secure a night and get a sitter for the little'uns. Thing is, reservations is for 7:30... unless Tom drives me right to Vanessa's afterward, I won't make knitting circle!

I'll make him drive me.

Heck no! I'll appear tonight, come hell or high water! I just might miss your smiling face is all. I can catch the 3 straight from dinner, but it takes forever... probably wouldn't get there till 10 or so. :(
