On a KNITTING blog?
are you CRAZY?!?!!?
Yeah, I know there hasn’t been a whole lot of knitting content ’round these parts. This week, I can safely say it’s because I’ve done no knitting!!!
The craziest part about that is I have NO GOOD REASON WHATSOEVER!
I’m off from the yarn store this week in order to fill in for the girl who normally does the midday spot (10a-3p baby, listen to me at work!!!), which means I have LOADS AND LOADS of free time!
(loads and loads might be an exagerration. What I mean to say is that I have normal-people free time, where you get up in the morning, grab coffee, go to work, come home, and have the night freeeeeeeeee! I LOVE IT! )
You must be wondering, “If you’re not KNITTING, what the hell are you DOING with all this supposed free time?”
- Napping. Highly underrated.
- Watching deliberately and depressingly manipulative movies on ABC Family that star Jennifer Love Hewitt. Oh yes, you bet your ASS I cried.
- Getting lured to really lame parties at bars in MALLS. I so should have stayed home and folded laundry.
- GOING TO THE GYM! Ok, I only went ONCE this week so far, and it’s TOTALLY nullified by the bullet point below, but I STILL WENT!
- Baking cupcakes! mmmmmm. cuupcaaaaaakes.
Thankfully, we were smart enough to take 20 of our 24 cupcakes to work where the cupcake vultures snatched them up REAL quick
I guess I just haven’t FELT like knitting. I take it out… I sit it next to me on the couch… but then? Nothing.
We can look at pictures of my NON-progress though, I guess…
(in case you are thinking Hayley is being loving and sweet there, let me set you straight and inform you that she is trying to EAT my addi turbos. Apparently, I will SHOVE the cat aside to save my addis, shouting things like “HAYLEY! GET YOUR DAMN FANGS OFF THAT! DO YOU KNOW HOW EXPENSIVE THOSE ARE!?!?)
The stripes are getting a tad fun-kay, though. See the funkiness?
I’ll have to keep going to see how it turns out, but I’m a tad worried. Then again, you EITHER see the foot OR the ankle, rarely both at the same time, soooo, it’s all good. (don’t argue with me, I need my rationalizations!!!)
I’m also working on my roomie’s Hanukkah scarf. Yes, I am aware that Hanukkah ended forever ago. I gave it to her wrapped up on the needles on the 5th night and she is patiently awaiting its completion I’d say I’m a wee bit over half done with it at this point.
It’s a “My So-Called Scarf” in Manos.
This weekend, Chelsea and I are going to see Colin Meloy at the Birchmere. Both will be a first for me (Colin and the Birchmere), so it should be a good time…maybe there will even be cute boys there! WOO!
