What's the Nerd Up To?

This is what I had yesterday morning :





This, well, this is what I have tonight :




One more day of frantic knitting and the Mason-Dixon baby kimono (a baby gift for the Prime Geek's boss) will be finished. At the moment? I am truly begining to loathe pink. On the up side? Who knew I could knit a baby sweater in three days. Granted... the dishes are stacking up, we had to go out for dinner, and I couldn't tell you if I am wearing clean jeans or not.
(I did mail out a letter to my congressman and senator regarding the bags, thanks to a handy website full of address - http://www.usa.gov/Contact/Elected.shtml. Your turn!)
Tomorrow I finally get to start letting several cats out of the bag regarding some big news for the Prime Geek and myself.....
And I plan to spend much of the day figuring out what the PG is gonna owe me for dropping me into this pink hell. Don't know what yet, but its gonna be big.*
* On the up side? Its a warm sweater for a cute little girl. All things being equal, not a bad three days work. Just don't tell the PG that... I am trying to guilt him into buying me a spinning wheel.

i loathed pink for years......now it's starting to come back to me, usually in a nice rose.....
and the monkey won't wear anything pink unless it's hot pink (or drogo's parents bought it for her!)........
but it is a nice, warm, handmade sweater for a little girl.....
you just need to make sure he's been informed of the dangers of acrylic if he's gonna bring home yarn for you......
if this has been a little disjointed, it's cause i just woke up.....

and definintely, hold out for that wheel!!

That's some nice work! Is there a knitting blog in your future? You'd have to figure out a way to fit in doing the laundry and dishes but I'm sure you could swing it.
