Well, Vicki, of '336 Triangular Shawls' fame has a contest running. She's looking for knitting patterns that require 285 yards of yarn, or less. There's prizes!
I've been bashing hardwood all day long, so this will be short (due to the inability of any serious and pain-free joint movement). I have a bowl of pralines and cream though, and I have a new job to start tomorrow morning. It's all good.
