Pirate Kriatyrr & Odessa

Life sucks a bit too. But not too badly.


So my Pomatomus socks that were going so well turned out too tight for my feet. Blargh. I also can't make them the regular length with the yarn I'm using - Silja Strømpegarn is only 150 meters per skein and the socks need more like 175. So I can do them with two leg repeats instead of the normal three, I guess. But I'm going to have to start all over again with thicker needles anyhow.
I had wanted to have one sock completed and the other in progress for International Knit in Public Day on Saturday so I'd have something to show off. So much for that plan.

The garden is overgrown, in particular the path down to the street. The entire house is a mess. Potato plants have just started to emerge from the soil. I have rhubarb! Lots of it. But it's so sour.. and if I add sugar to it like we did when we were kids, it'll just be unhealthful. Does rhubarb have any actual uses outside of pie?

I didn't do any exercise yesterday, and only barely managed to get myself to do the measuring and body test in Wii Fit, which praised me for my diligence as I have not missed a single day in the week I've been doing it. -_-

I miss group therapy.
