My Sock-ret Pal sent me an (early) birthday e-card! Thank you!!! It made my day because today was rather rough at work and I really needed the smile :o)
In related Sock-ret Pal news, everything has been set straight with my pal and I now have someone to spoil! Wooooo!
I’ve been working on Branching Out lately. I keep having issues counting stitches today and I think it’s because I was feeling a little stressed with the new changes going on at work. Turns out it’s pretty hard to follow a lace pattern when you’re mind is pre-occupied. I need a “mindless” project for times like this. One that I can just pick up and knit and not think too much about it. I miss having socks on the needles and at the moment I’m trying not to cast-on for any. I’m trying to hold out until I’ve got Branching Out done, but I don’t know if I can hold out much longer!
I’ve got two days off, which I’m quite thankful for! I’ve got a few things I want to pick out for my KTS 2 Pal so that I can get the package in the mail this coming week. I’m crossing my fingers and toes that what I’m waiting for in the mail will arrive on Monday so I can go to the post office and get the package in the mail since I work Tuesday to Saturday and I don’t want to have to wait until NEXT Monday to get it in the mail. We’ll see what happens.
No new or interesting knitting photos today, but I did see a really cute knitted sweater on a little girl today. It was ribbed and cabled. I thought it was really cute (even though it was something store bought) and for a moment wished I had a kid to knit for. I could knit something for Nathaniel, but what? He doesn’t wear scarfs or mittens. I already knit him a hat (which he loves and proudly shows off during colder months). I’ve thought about a sweater, but at the rate he’s growing, I’d have to make it rather large so that it fits him for more than a few months! And besides, you don’t knit cute things for a nearly 14 year old boy.
Alright, I’m back to knitting I go :o)
