Codegirl Strikes Again

So it's true, I still didn't get around to posting pictures today. Someday, my friends, someday. However, big changes have come to this blog. As you are aware, we switched our template away from the all black in favor of something a little more serene. Today we added the new sidebar content. We're considering whether we should choose links to individual posts for the pictures, or whether we should check out a gallery. We shall see.
On the knitting front, I finished the lower front of the Punk Rock Backpack today. Overall I'm very pleased with it for my first encounter with intarsia. I now understand why it's made out to be so intimidating. I like the look of it...but I dread the thought of the billion ends I have to weave in with no place to put them. It took me until I had about ten rows left to figure out I didn't have to cut the yarn every time I switched colors. Oh well.
Sadly, morning comes quickly. Off to bed for me.


Procrastination Festival

I'm definitely going to start my paper soon. Anytime now, really. A day and a half should be plenty of time to finish it in anyway, right? *gulps*
I finally started the Punk Rock Backpack from SNB today. I got the yarn for it for my birthday, so it's been sitting here for awhile. I've been nervous to start because I've never done intarsia before (unless you count the geek wristwarmer from SNB, but that was really more fair isle, in our opinion. And the results were scary anyway.). I cast on with size 6 needles a week or two ago, and my gauge was too small, so this morning I tried size 7. Still too small. It was, yes it's true, still too small on 8s. I ended up using my 10s. I have actually finished the heart already, and I hope to begin the bunny later tonight if I ever start my paper.
Later I'll post pictures of my progress so far, and of my other projects, both those completed and in progress. Just don't count on it, say, within the next month.


Another List

I'm supposed to be working on a presentation, but I find myself too sleepy (but apparently not too sleepy to procrastinate). Here are my 43 Things:

oatmeal wants to do 16 things:
1. grow closer to God
2. share my faith
3. have children
4. exercise regularly
5. eat healthier
6. be stronger emotionally
7. stop procrastinating
8. live in NYC
9. become an expert knitter
10. renovate an old house
11. learn to sew
12. become fluent in another language
13. blog regularly
14. hike across America
15. know my blood type
16. relax

I'm still trying to come up with more, but this is all I thought of at the moment.

Back to my presentation (really).
