Quick PSA

Just until I can get my act together and take a picture of my knitting! I'm at the toe of my second Jaywalker, and the tank and I have made up and I'm hard at work on her front. (What about the back, you ask? C'est finit!)

I got a package today at work from the ubiquitous Knitpicks. A package containing two of their new fall 2006 yarns. The Telemark seems okay. It's a little rough in the skein, but I think it'll make a hearty pair of mittens (I got black and cream to do just that). What really got me moved to write though, was the Gloss! Of course, I have yet to knit with it, but judging the book by its cover, I'd say this is a great yarn! It's soft, but not floppy. It has a nice sheen, but it's not SHINY. The color I got (dusk) is fabulous! I can't wait to make it into some socks and put them on my feet!

As for the bat issue, we went the route of leaving the door and window open at dusk. Bets were running as to whether the bat was even still in the house. Everything was quiet until about 7:30, when I was starting to think that maybe the bat did get out the night before. My boyfriend went into the kitchen for a sandwich, when I heard, "I found it!" and rushed to see him fleeing the kitchen and the bat flying like mad. Long story short, the bat left the apartment! I leave the doors and window shut at dusk now.

I know I said I didn't have any pictures, but who doesn't like cute animals, right? We went to the state fair last Friday, and they had the cutest, tiniest little goats there! Like this guy:

I wanted to scoop him up and take him home!

Actual knitting pictures coming soon. I promise.
