Ok, who is next here on the time zone/midnight coming up ? I still have 2+ hours to go ...

drinking sparkling soda with some sort of flavoring ... not bad! Or rather I have to tell myself it doesn't quite taste like bubblegum. It is pomegranate and something else ...

Is this the place to request an entry to a drawing or is it the right time?

Mittens and socks are great to knit. They knit up pretty quickly if you use a thicker yarn. Last Christmas I knitted DH a pair of very warm socks(first pair ever, in fact first ever knitted project) using Wool Ease and size 7 dpns. He loved them as they kept his feet toasty during the 13 days/nights we were without power courtesy of the ice storm. Cometosilver has a great sock tutorial.

Cometosilver is the BEST .... I use her site over and over again when I need to cast on with two circulars or magic loop -- it was the one of the few sites that I could find that would "work" for me in the instructions department. Of course once you do that cast on a few times you wonder how it could be so "difficult," but you do feel "all thumbs" the first time.
