*deep breath*

Right, then.

Talked to s00j (my unicorn chaser!) until emilytheslayer came over. Emily and I went out to lunch and hit the yarn store for some supplies and a visit with asciikitty; I got the crochet hook and tapestry needles I needed, and some green alpaca to make a gift for Elayna - a scarf and arm-warmers to match my jewel-toned ones (she loves to pet the scarf-in-progress). Gaselli green for my Gaselli girl. (I asked Emily, Gaselli green or manticore/firebird red? Gaselli, Emily said, because that is so her piece. Yes.)

Emily taught me how to bind off, so now I have my first finished project, huzzah! It's the second one I started; I decided to turn the first one into a throw, so more yarn was called for, and I started something quick and easy in the meantime.

And she divided skeins for me so I didn't have to measure anything for the armwarmers, just cast on 40 stitches and go til I run out of yarn.

Didn't have time to learn increasing and decreasing. Next time. In the meantime, I have something to do while watching TV.

And - yeah. Sorry for the maudlining. Just - feeling scraped raw. This is on the one hand no not the week to dwell on Vegas... but on the other hand, if I want the raw emotions in there...
