A thought on friendships

Those who know me, know that I don't have many friends. I'm not very social. I've always been a loner. Plus, I don't like superficial interactions and feigning interest. But those very few people who I consider friends are extremely important to me. They become so deeply ingrained in my life, they become family. To those few, I'm going to be loyal till the end.
Hmmm... I must have a 'type'
Today I hung out with two of those few people who mean the world to me. I've met my friend S in high school and B in college. Their paths haven't crossed much, but both of them have been solid fixtures in my life. It was nice to share laughs with both of them together. I really love those girls. And I feel that the older we get, the more meaningful these friendships are going to become.
Thank you girls for being patient with my sometime anti-social behavior, and for loving me for who I am. You will always be able to count on me, and I can't wait to see where we all end up when we "grow up". But for now, let's stick with wine, cheese & Netflix at B's fabulous (or S's dumpy) apartment. ;)

February 2011 Knitting Projects

February projects were short and sweet. I am almost done with the coquille shawl, but it didn't make it by the end of this month. So I present to you knitting that has been completed.

Flounce scarf for the yarn shop display
Baby genius burp cloth
I've still got plenty of projects on the needles, including the aforementioned coquille shawl, Cecil the monster, baby surprise jacket, Cate cardigan, Milo socks, and another Baktus scarf. And of course, I have acquired more yarn before I used up the ones I have. But how could I resist:
