Long day, some knitting

I think I'm going to get the Palette sampler box from Knitpicks for Christmas, along with a set of size 1 Takumi needles and the Northern Lights mitten pattern. I was pondering a box of sock yarn -- but I have so much Wool-Ease to still use for socks... Suggestions?

This is the chart I am using to make the dog coat for Sparky. The WIP is at 9" out of 16". Soon I have to figure out how best to shape the chest area. My mom called with the measurements! I think I can rig up a pillow or something similar into the basic shape to make sure the coat will fit. Update : I DID rig up a pillow into a 'fake dog' by tying it up with yarn. Sparky's coat is now 10.5" and I have a much better idea of what it is going to look 'on the dog'. ;o)!

We might go to Harry Potter tonight, in an hour... because we missed Thursday night's opening. J is a self-proclaimed nerd for these types of movies.

I am online doing the Fabric Shop Hop.

This morning, both of the kittens were asleep in our bed. Willowpede (Greta Garbo), was even asleep in the crook of my arm. J says she needs a cold day to remember she was meant to be a lap cat ;o)
