I'm still here, I swear!

I've been working, working, working, and I'm glad to say I LOVE it! I've also been crocheting, yes, it's true! And not updating! My sincerest apologies. Here is a shot of my most current work, a gift for ::cough cough:: my mom ::cough cough:: that I accidentally told her was coming. Whoops! This is the only color/pattern combo that she's ever liked straight out of the book, so here's hoping she still likes it! The pattern is from Vanna's Favorite Crocheted Gifts, the yarn is (of course) the gorgeous papaya Simply Soft that Julie sent way back when. The pattern calls for a discontinued shade of LB wool-ease, so that was a no go! Does anyone know if there's any stock to the rumor that Simply Soft pills after washing? I hope not!

In other news, John has been promoted to full manager at his theatre, and we've been seeing far too many movies. If you're looking for a good film, but NOT a good laugh, see The BreakUp -- it's wonderful, but definitely not the romantic comedy it's advertised to be! We've also upgraded our apartment with a new shelf from IKEA, soon to be filled with yarn, books, and video games. For the moment though, it's acting as a kitty lookout. Poor Ra is less than thrilled that we've added a dog to the menagerie.
