Today I signed up for automatic notification when a Nintendo Wii becomes available on any one of numerous sites online. For $6.50, I figured it was worth a try. I'd like to get it for a certain someone this Christmas and while I know my chances are slim, I thought I'd at least try.
Meanwhile, Faythe's ranting has inspired me to knit a simple sock. The only thing special about it is it's 100% wool, Cascade 220 to be exact. I've tried on other wool songs made of finer yarn and liked how they felt on my foot so thought I'd give it a try with another wool that would knit up much quicker. So far I'm pleased. The good thing about feet, they're not sensitive to potential itchyness from wool.
I'll let you know if I score a Wii. After I buy mine (see, I'm thinking positively), I'll post here if I learn of a site that's selling them.
