I've decided against joining the Yarn Pirate Booty Club. One, I just paid my student-loan and credit-card bills this morning. Two, I realized that if I'd sign up, I'd feel guilty about it all the while in northern Virginia and Charleston. Three, I tried to sign up at 1:00 this afternoon (Eastern time, mind you), thinking that that was the same as 4 p.m. PDT. D'oh.
I cast on for a Steelers sock for my mom! I am loving the Claudia's. Super squishy and really really soft.
(About 10 minutes after I took this photo, I dropped four stitches - 2k, 2p - off the needles and couldn't pick them back up, so I angrily frogged it.)
