Baby sweater!

Daisy is nearly done. My seaming has improved drastically since I sewed the first raglan seam on this sweater in December. Unfortunately, I once again wove in the ends so well I a) cut the selvedge trying to undo the sleeve, which was craptacular and b) can't possibly find them well enough to undo the raglan without ripping.

So I have one "nice" raglan and one "craptacular" one. They don't look that far off (apparently it's a fine line) but dammit, I can see it, and that makes me super frustrated.

The cat bed is dry and is being summarily ignored. Of COURSE.

I just downloaded Hot Rocks from the iTunes Music Store. If you're going to buy one Stones album, that's the one to buy. There are a few holes in it, but not many. Let it Bleed is my second favorite. I was contemplating buying the Arctic Monkeys, who remind me woefully and nostalgically of The Replacements (I still miss them terribly), but I decided some Keith was in order. Maybe next week I'll buy a Matthew Sweet album and groove on that. Old stuff.

At the moment I'm listening to some friends singing "Lost Highway." They also did a version of "I Saw the Light" that I quite like - even more than Hank Sr's version.

In other news, my friend bought a cashmere wrap at Goodwill for 99 cents. It's lovely - 20" x 5.5 feet and knitted at or about 8 stitches per inch. When some of us go to the Goodwill, we find crap. Others are luckier. I consider it a gift. She found a Kitchenaid mixer - new in the box - one time for $7.99, and all the attachments for like $15.

It's a good thing she's my friend, because otherwise I'd be forced to hate her. :)

Did anyone here ever listen to Government Cheese? Camping on Acid? The Shrubbery's Dead Where Danny Used to Fall? Come ON, who's heard them?? Another band I miss, terribly, especially since The Codenames opened for Tommy Womack the other night in Evansville. Tommy has a song called Martin Luther, which I quite, quite like. It's not on the free songs page, but there are many others to listen to. Check it out.

Wow, your friend has fabulous thrift store karma. I'm jealous! Of course, I have found a few nice cashmere things at the thrift store... and all of my jeans. So I suppose I can't complain too much.

The Arctic Monkeys cd is one of the thank you gifts I'm getting for my membership pledge to Minnesota Pulic Radio...
