I felt I needed to offer proof that there is actually an afghan, instead of lumps of yarn.

What you previously saw as this

is really far more accurately depicted as this

except that it should turn out much more square looking when it's not wrapped around three circular needles. Plus, it will have much more color to it, as you might recall from this

I suppose the fact that I worked on it last night means I haven't given up hope yet as previously thought. Or it could mean I'm just completely delusional. Tough call. In any event, NO WRIST PAIN! YAY! I changed a few things about my keyboard set up at work, and I think with diligence I can keep the pain at bay.

As I mentioned at some point this week, my Annapolis knitting guild's holiday party is tonight, so I'm bringing a cheesy-nutty-thing that I haven't actually tried yet, but the recipe looked interesting. Here's what it looks like, with the lid still sealed tight on the strawberry jam.

Hopefully, they'll all think I'm amazingly brilliant for bringing it. So far I've managed to distract them with my knitting prowess, if we're actually expected to communicate sans fiber, they may discover what a dork I really am. If the cheesy-nutty-thing doesn't work, emergency back up plan A is to scream "look yarn!" and run. Emergency back up plan B is to fake alien possession. I think we're all hoping it won't come to that.

And anyone who wants to buy me tickets to Rent next week at the Hippodrome is welcome to do so. GB and I saw it about six years ago... Fantastic show...

Tune in around 4pm (Eastern) for David's birthday song. I promised I'd put it up, but I'll have to be alone in the station for that to happen. I may be a glutton for punishment but I really feel AC and I have shared enough.

Okay, I'm totally intrigued! Here I've been driving to College Park to go to guild meetings and you say now that there is an Annapolis Area guild? Is it open? Can anyone join?

And though I hate to ask goofy questions (though it would appear I'm on a roll now) which radio station?

Okay, I'm outta here. Thanks for any information you can give me.

Hi, Genia! You didn't leave contact information! Yes, anyone can come to the Annapolis guild - I don't live in the area, but I work there (managing a business talk station) so it's the guild I go to! We meet at the Police Station near Parole, kinda off Route 2 (Stepney's Lane, to be exact) at 7pm, the second Wednesday of the month. If you can make it tonight, we'd love to see you (and be kind to my cheesy-nutty thing)!!!

your cheesy nut ring looks almost as good as your afghan!

It's nice to see the afghan spread out - when it's in a pile, it resembles a stack of multi-colored pancakes with a pat of lumpy butter on top. :-) It's going to be stunning when you finish it! Should build up some arm muscles trying to knit around the bulk, too.

I *love* Rent! I covered it for our local paper 2 years hubby hated it, but I absolutely loved it!

That afghan is gorgeous. It's going to be so spectacular when you're done! I love it, love it, love it.
