Would someone slow this thing down already?!

Still on a lazy kick, so there will be no new pics in this post!

I can't seem to stop saying this, but what the hell, where did January go? I feel like time is just roaring by but nothing is getting done.

I have gotten a bit more knit on my Marigold socks. Yay. I can't wait to wear these, they are so beautiful. The Yarntini is lovely to knit with, both the Vintage colorway and the texture of the yarn itself. Yum. I have been pleased with myself for not going batshit crazy buying particular brands of yarn, but I could easily see myself sliding down the slippery slope of crazy and going hogwild with the Yarntini purchasing. Well, except that it would cost me an extra $5 to go crazy. I think the Yarntini would be worth it. Really, I do. Thankfully, it is difficult to find it in stock anywhere. I think the heel on this second sock was the fastest I've ever cranked a heel out, and I'm now almost halfway up the leg. I'm doing 7 repeats of the lace pattern (well, 7 1/2 before the cuff) and I have completed 3 repeats. So, soon! I will be done! (About time, too. Sheesh. I've been knitting these for a century.)

I haven't knit on the Clapotis for a couple of days. I got obsessed with the sock and I haven't had enough free time to spend on knitting. But tonight is Bobaknit and then I will have some knitting time this weekend, so I am hoping I will be able to finish my sock and then get on with the Clapotis. Oh and of course I will be starting another sock. I already know what I am going to knit, although I am still deciding on yarn. I might have it figured out but we will see.

The baby hamsters are omg cute. They are crawling on top of the bedding now periodically, not all of them at once though, just two or three at a time. There is so totally a runt of the litter, it is nearly half the size of the rest of them. I'm not sure that the runt's eyes are open, though everyone else's eyes are open now. They are really damn cute. I can see it being very hard to give any of them away!

Ok, it is hecka late now. Time to get to sleep and get ready for another ripping month end! Woo.
