Maybe you've noticed, and maybe you haven't, that it's been DAYS since I was here. Days....how does that happen? Where does the time go? You'd think that with an entire weekend at my disposal, there would be something pithy written here with accompanying visual aids. There's not.
I HAVE been knitting, though, and I've also been cleaning, spinning (just a teeny, tiny bit for practice's sake), reorganizing, rearranging furniture, and drinking. Not all at the same time, mind you, but still. In knitting news, I have finished my 1st ever sock!!!! It's the first of the Pippi Longstockings from SnB for the sock-along, and it ROCKS! What? Oh a picture, um, right. How about tomorrow? Yeah, tomorrow, I promise.
I'm also making progress on the Sari-along scarf, which I'm mostly back to liking, and I began swatching for my first Lorna's Laces socks for the hubby in "Pinstripe". Size 1's - what on earth was I thinking? I also did a quick swatch for a scarf I'll be doing in a lovely green Manos. Swatching for a scarf? I know. Did I mention that I was an accountant? I was also thinking of doing a quick swatch for Ribby tonight after work. Thank heavens I didn't make any of those "one project at a time" resolutions, eh?
In other news, and you heard it here first, I'm absolutely fed up with the transit situation in my little corner of Somerville, so I'm getting one of these. Seriously. I know I have my bike, and that works for some stuff, but there really are days when you just need to get your ass to work and waiting 35 minutes for a bus that is SUPPOSED to run every 10 is just unacceptable. Add to that the fact that I have had 3, count 'em, THREE 2-hour commutes this week (should be 35-40 mins door to door), and you'll find that I lost about 4 1/2 hours of my life to the MBTA, and since most of that was standing outside in the freezing-freaking-cold waiting for a bus that never came, that's a lot of damned good knitting time down the drain too. Bastards.
Ahem. I think maybe I should go get some coffee.......and maybe a Valium.
