Happy Lost Finale day, everyone!  Who knows how it's going to end.  I've kind of given up trying to deconstruct everything, but I do have some questions that I'd like to see answered.  For instance:
  1. Why did the smoke monster come out of the cave when MIB went in?
  2. Why is Desmond so damn important?
  3. What's the deal with Widmore and why was he so keen to get back to the island?
  4. It's all been Vincent's crazy dog dream from the sedatives and pressure changes in cargo, right?
  5. What's Josh Holloway's phone number?
They just showed my favorite exchange:
Sawyer: What's your problem Jumbo-tron?
Hurley: Shut up, redneck man!
Sawyer: Touché

I have to figure out what I'm going to knit throughout the finale.  It can't be anything too hard b/c I'm going to need to pay attention.  I've gotten through the pattern part of the Ruby Red sweater, and I've got about 6 more inches of stockinette to go, so that might be a good choice.  The entrelac scarf (pictured) is pretty easy, too, especially since it's stockinette, only working with 8 stitches at a time.  This afternoon, I cast some socks in yummy Malabrigo Sock in Violet Grape - a deep deep purple.  They're going to be awesome, but will probably require too much concentration.

I've also got to figure out what I'm going to do with my latest Stash Club kit.  It's a bunch of mini skeins of Neighborhood Fiber Company Capital Luxury Worsted - a merino, cashmere, nylon blend. Basically it's one big colorway called "Political Spectrum" with 5 skeins in different shades of blue, purple and red.  I don't know if I'll use the patterns that were included, but I definitely can't wait to use the yarn.  I met Karida, the dyer, at Stitch and Pitch at Nats Park on Friday evening.  She's pretty cool.  One of these days I'll invest in some Penthouse Lace of hers for something totally yummy.

In other news, the collection of yarn for the troops overseas is going exceptionally well.  The outpouring has been absolutely amazing.  They've already received one of the boxes I've sent, I sent another on Thursday, and I've got enough for two more boxes sitting in my living room.  It's phenomenal.  Thank you to everyone who has donated.   I received this from SSgt Sholl yesterday.  Very touching.
Hey Emily!

Thank you so much for your donations, I have already made 2 hats, 2 scarves, and a set of mittens from all the fun yarn! I even have a guy knitting a scarf for his wife, lol. It is greatly appreciated. We have been pretty busy as well, they shut off our communication with the US every time there is a US casualty, so sad. Pray for their safety. I pray while I knit, “A prayer in every stitch” I like to say.  Thank all of your donators for us, it is greatly appreciated and really helps to keep the stress levels low.

Thank you so much for all of the support and the incredible amount of motivation! It is greatly appreciated!
