Who Loves September?

Well, I don't. The weather has been lovely. Austin was fantastic. Work hasn't totally killed me. So why don't I like Septembers?

Baseball, that's why. The regular season is coming to an end, and the Mets [originally] had the pennant in the bag. In a suitcase. Dude, that pennant was signed, sealed and delivered. But instead, they decided to make it interesting. Too interesting. They are making it too easy for the Phillies to steal [that's right STEAL] the pennant. They better wake up because if they want to keep THIS fan [don't worry; they will], they better start playing real baseball.

In other baseball news, check out New York Magazine's latest article on my grandfather's favorite and only baseball team - the Brooklyn Dodgers.

In knitting news, my left front of the CPH has been complete [yeah!]. After a short "where the HELL did that needle go" fit at 11:30pm tonight, I immediately cast on the right front.


I also signed up for the Secret of the Stole and am using some of my Skacel Alpaca Seta yarn in a delicious light camel color. Unfortunately, since I only have 600 yards, I need to track down more. Who knew knitting from your stash would mean you need to buy more yarn?

Hey Nicole, if I was going to go to Austin where should I stay? I feel like getting out of the city for a while. I know. Again. I have the travel bug....
