...And who needs a finger cover?

Yup, it's me again. I guess Angie was going to blog but didn't get to take her pictures until it was after dark, and she "needs" natural light, so... ;) Just teasing you hon. Glad you're feeling better.

Update on Brutus. I don't think he's going to be in our family long. I think there's something wrong with him. He spent most of the day at the top of the water, practically just inhaling air, not going down for anything. Then I finally noticed that he had some white stuff on his fins, so I thought there might be something wrong with his water... speaking of, dangit, I forgot to add the stuff that makes your tap water safe for bettas, I need to do that... ok, that's done. I think he might be blind now though. I mean, he was fine this morning, but there was something weird going on with his water, it was just... strange. So I changed his water and stuff, and then put him back in, and he seemed to be ok. But, when he breathes, bubbles come out of his gills. So I think we'll be taking him back to the store tomorrow. Provided it stops snowing sometime. :( Poor Brutus, he'll probably be sad, but I'm not keeping a fish that's sick, ya know?

So, today I watched Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix again. While watching it, I got all of this done.

That's about a quarter of a fingerless glove for Dave, and all of the cuff on the rainbow socks. I'm really liking the way the cascade 22 works up on the size six dpns. And actually, I really like the way broadripple's working out now, although... it might end up being a TEENY bit bigger than the other one. My gauge has obviously changed since sock number one was knit. I like it though. Then, I was going to rip out the endpapers and pick up the stitches at the ribbing, and change to size threes. But... that didn't happen. I couldn't get the ribbing back on the needles, so...

They're a redo. And then, out of sheer boredom with everything I'm knitting, and jealousy over the speed with which Angie's popping out baby socks, I cast on for a pair myself.

Look how LITTLE! I loves it. :) They're precious... And... I guess I don't get to sleep in the bed tonight. This is what my side of the bed looks like.

Yup. Not my bed. Theirs. :)

Oh, yeah. I've decided that I'm going to share a quote with you all a day. I doubt that you care but... It's interesting to ME, so that's all that matters. So there. :D So, here's today's quote of the day.

"Sometimes I lie awake at night, and I ask, 'Where have I gone wrong?' Then a voice says to me, 'This is going to take more than one night.'" - Charles M. Schulz, from "Peanuts."
