Look what I saw when I got up this morning:

Rosy-fingered dawn! Do you know how long it's been since I woke up to natural light? [ETA, per Amanda's and Cordelia's comments, that I do not get up particularly early at all (by objective standards. By my own standards, anything before 9 is early). This sunrise was approx 7:15 this morning.]

So that's exciting. Also exciting? The Amazing Race is back! And I do mean BACK--no stupid families, excellent challenges, and HELICOPTERS. And the nerdiest little couple with whom I am totally in love. Happy happy happy. Plus, the season premire was 2 hours long, so that meant lots of knitting time.

Pomatomus? Frogged. Wyvern? Well underway. Thanks for the suggestion, Olga! I have to say, I don't like the pattern itself nearly as much as Pomatomus--I miss the pop of the twisted sitches--but it is not crippling my hands, which makes it a winner in my book. And as Olga wisely observed, fish? Dragons? Both scaly.

(Note that the Wyvern reposes on a stack of blue books. Which remained ungraded while I watched TAR and knitted. Priorities, mes amis, priorities.)

I'm thinking I should not ask at what ungodly hour you actually get up.
I should, however, congratulate you on a most successful ordering of priorities. Enjoy Wyvern.

wyvern is looking great. i am little nervous about making such a big call so early on - but i think you have found that illusive perfect marriage between handpainted sock yarn and a great pattern.

i'll keep my fingers crossed that your fortune continues.

I was thinking the exact same thing as Cordelia about the crack of dawn.

Wyvern looks great!

I looooved the nerdy couple! Those blue books brought back horrific law school memories, but Wyvern looks fantabulous.

heh heh. I too am neglecting grading for, well, just about anything else. Although that's all comin' down on me today. Wyvern is looking good - I like the stripes on the toe.
