Why does Mommy keep threatening to drink both of these in one sitting?
But I am now off until Monday the 14th (with the exception of having to go to the hospital to meet with hospital administration and a patient's family to do go over an Incident Quality of Care Review - reliving one of the lowlights of the last 2 weeks, as it were). I have managed to get some knitting done, but am horribly behind on taking photos - will try to catch up this weekend.
Getting the blues takes on a whole new meaning when it comes to yarn like this!
It was particularly thoughtful of her to print out 3 patterns for lace scarves that can be knit with this yarn. Printing things is a bit of a chore in our house - we have a laser printer which is 4-5 years old, and our new computer doesn't have the right port to connect the printer with it. My laptop is the only computer in the house that can it can connect to; and it is usually on the main floor. The printer lives on the 3rd floor of our house. Thank you Penny!!!
Although I haven't blogged in a week or so, I have been looking at blogs and Ravelry. It's interesting to see that last year's "Knit from my stash" phenomenon has morphed into "Knit down my stash". Does anyone remember how yarn store owners were apparently wringing their hands, worried that sales would plummet if enough knitters went on a yarn diet for the first 6 months of 2007? I imagine that there were some who were successful, but let's face it, diets are generally doomed to fail, as are the bulk of New Year's Resolutions.
So this year, I am making only 4 resolutions:
1) I will listen to more podcasts (I have hours and hours of CBC Radio One podcasts stored on my computer, enough to fill several mp3 players). Maybe once I clear the backlog, I will check out some knitting podcasts.
2) I will document at least 90% of my stash on Ravelry. Of course, this means that I will have to locate a few boxes of yarn that I haven't seen since the move. Which leads to resolution#3
3) I will unpack/figure out where to store the stuff that is still sitting in bins/boxes. The Gambler and I have need to get around to buying some bedroom furniture; right now I keep most of my socks in a Rubbermaid bin!
4) I will drink more water.
Well, it is off to fight the crowds at the gym. I got 6 "personal trainer sessions" when we joined the gym in November, but was only able to schedule the first one for yesterday because of my insande work schedule in November/December. I feel like having a shirt made up saying "No, this is NOT a New Year's Resolution"
