I'll also be knitting myself some go-go boots and painting on my eyelashes, just like 60s model Penelope Tree.
I finished the back piece of my dad's vest
, and as I look at it now I give a hundred thanks for Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amelie Poulain
on dvd (with a bonus dvd!) and Encore Provence
by Peter Mayle. Without those two to keep me entertained while knitting this piece, all that ribbing probably would have made me want to throw my Addi Turbo circulars up on a telephone wire like a pair of forgotten sneakers. Yes, even if they are Addis.
On another note, I regularly receive e-mails from visitors that contain the same question:
Dear Skinny Rabbit,
Where in the world do you find the time to work on all those projects?

Dear Curious Knitting Friend,
It's simple! I have two little Things named Knittie 1 and Knittie 2, and they knit for me during the day, 'cause I very rarely get a chance to even pick up a knitting needle during the day.
Actually, it is true that I rarely pick up the needles during the day, unless it's vacation. Most of my knitting is done at night, usually between 9:30 p.m. and midnight. I also knit in the car on the weekends, if I'm going to be sitting in the passenger side for more than 20 min stretches. It's amazing how much I can get done in those pockets of time.
(But wouldn't it be neat if I did have two Things named Knittie 1 and Knittie 2? If I did, they'd do all my blocking and seaming for me. And I'd want them to walk the dog, too. Oh! And maybe do dinner when it's my turn to do dinner, because I don't like to do dinner.)
