Dunno why, but I am In A Mood. Well, yeah, I know why. A large number of small things that add up to big annoyance, mostly work-related. Why is it that some people are incapable of following even the most simple of directions?
Grrrrrrrr . . .
And the crappy weather ain’t helping.
I ask you. It’s enough to make a girl want to use her size 0000 steel dpns in a way not recommended by the manufacturer.
Thank you for listening. Back to knitting now.
I worked on my beloved Abalone last night because there’s a problem with the pattern I’m test-knitting and I’m waiting for the designer to get back to me with how he wants me to proceed.
Ah, Abalone! Abalone! All other knitting is full of baloney.
Woo! Woo! New project alert! What do you suppose this is?
What? You can’t tell from that photo? It’s Norfolk, from Alice Starmore’s Fisherman Knits. Knitted in the Peruvian Collection Baby Silk in the “butter pecan” color (purchased from Elann). I’m using size 2.5mm and 3.0mm needles and it’s my commuter knitting.
Perhaps it would be more accurate to say it’s my “knit a few stitches at work at lunchtime when I get a chance” project. I’ve not been able to knit on the train for a while — too crowded.
It’s a sick sick world when the train is jam-packed full at 5:30am.
My, I’m just a whiney girl today, aren’t I? I make no apologies, but revel in my whineyness.
But here’s something cheery — a finished Booga Bag. Isn’t she purty?
And what did I block her on?
Two small size Priority Mail boxes. They fit perfectly and the price is right!
