Happy Birthday Dad!!

Today is my dad's 60th birthday. Almost a year ago at this point, we were scared that he wouldn't make it home from the hospital. He's a trooper and very strong and my hero. Yay Dad! Happy Birthday and many, many, many, many, many, many, many (I can't type enough of those) more!!

We have literally OD'ed on MST3K this past week. I guess it's only an OD if it's something bad and you're tired of it, though, and I'm definitely loving it, so perhaps we are enjoying massive quantities of one of my favorite shows.

On the knitting front, the first part of my tank top is coming along nicely. I frogged it and restarted, adding four rows of ribbing to keep it from rolling up. It looks much better, but unfortunately, I was lazy (or too impatient) and didn't do a gauge. I added fifteen extra stitches, but I still think it's going to be too small. I'll see how it ends up when I have the front and back done and I may do some side panels to make it fit. I'll post some updated photos once I can get somewhere without crappy lighting so that I can do it justice.

I have the rest of the week off...nothing big to do except celebrate Dad's birthday with dinner out Friday night. I'm looking forward to two nights of doing some work around the house and KNITTING like a fool. I love knitting. I can't wait to make awesome sweaters that look fantastic and cool and people will ask me where I got it and I can tell them that I MADE it. Yay.

That's all I've got.
