One thing about having a slow week at work is that you get to blog a lot more during the daylight hours. Usually I don’t get to sit down to blog until it’s about 5 o’clock and by that time it’s so dark out that there’s really not a lot of good light to take pictures… and I cannot stand the flash.
But alas this week at work I’ve been able to take advantage of my down time to take some in my nice and cozy office.
Sock #2 almost done! It’s the House Sock pattern from Holiday Knits with the Classic Elite Lush yarn. It’s so nice, soft and warm. I love them. I cannot wait to get a Finshed picture up. I casted on for this puppy on Monday and I’m definitely finishing it tonight. Christmas present #2 can be offically crossed off the list. I’m certainly not stressing myself out if I don’t get all the holiday knitting I want done. I’ve bought other back up presents just incase, but I just LOVE knitting for others. I don’t know what it is… I love thinking of things that I know they would want/wear. Granted I wouldn’t go out and knit a sweater for everyone I knew but socks and mittens are doable items. So I have two more items to go before the big Two-Five. I’m feeling optimistic… however…
You know What Really Grinds My Gears?
When you cannot find the F’ing yarn that goes with the F’ing pattern. You love the pattern and you love the yarn BUT the only thing is – no one seems to carry that yarn or perhaps (shocker) it’s been discontinued. I found two patterns I really like but I’m having a lot of trouble finding the yarn. One of them is the stained glass scarf from Handknit Holidays. Where the hell can I find Artyarns Ultramerino 4 or 6 or whatever number that is – in those colors? Now I know I could just be creative and choose different yarns, but I kinda Just Want Those. Is anyone feelin’ me on this one? Anyone?
So here’s hoping I find the yarn in time but if I don’t OH freakin’ well.
Oh and another thing… what’s this with LOST not airing a new episode until Jan 11th?? WTF!?
