This is what's broken:
The connector tip on my Options cable fell off whilst I was doing some stash-bustin' and making all my Wool of the Andes leftovers into a bad ass Booga Bag, as seen below. I can understand if the cord fell into disrepair as I was using it to strangle the neighbor upstairs who somehow feels it necessary to play the same song over and over and over loud enough that we can all enjoy it, but this was not the case. I've sent an email to the Knit Picks customer service folks; I'll let y'all know what their response is.
I am falling more and more in love with knitting Booga Bags every day. This one is being made with the leftover WoTA that I've been collecting over the years, knit using a Fibonacci sequence of sorts. So far I have 13-Chocolate, 8-Hush, 5-Arctic Pool Heather, 3-Coal, 2-Artic Pool Heather, 1-Hush, 2-Chocolate, 3-Hush, 5-Arctic Pool Heather, 8-Chocolate, 13-Coal... I'll have to see how the colors hold up to figure out the rest of the sequence.
Oh, and I got my Loopy Ewe order of birthday goodies!
Malabrigo Lace - Cypress
I have been wanting some Malabrigo for I can't tell you how long, and, even though I need more lace weight like I need a swift kick in the head, for six bucks I could not resist. Anyway, this and my latest Knit Picks order (which should arrive tomorrow or Monday) represent the last of the yarn purchases until I can get my stash back in it's little storage area. Well, except for the sweater yarn, of course. That would be madness. Madness, I tells ya!
Why the sudden change from yarn splurging to yarn dieting? I've decided that Stitches West 2009 is in my future, and I have to make financial and physical room for all the pretties I will be shipping home because they won't fit in my luggage. It gives me a definite quest and reward for making it through all these treatments with my knitting mojo intact.
And, finally, a cute, random kitty moment:
The flash makes her look like we've been torturing her for days, but check out the claws on my baby! She's definitely a fan of the Mountain Colors Barefoot sock yarn.
