There are not enough hours during the week to get as much knitting done as I'd like. Even though it's Friday, the thought of another 10 hours without picking up a pair of needles makes me sigh...
I guess the ten hour drive to and from Cape Cod this weekend will make up for it, but long intervals of non knitting just kill me. ::another long deep sigh:: I'm in the wrong profession.
Don't get me wrong. My day job , which I'm incredibly lucky to have, is fun and I work with awesome people. But if I could knit all day long, believe me, I'd do it! I'd have my own LYS! Someday. ;-)
There, I said it. I've been meaning to for a while, and it feels good. Now let's just hope no one from my office reads this. I don't even think they know I knit! New Media + Knitting make an odd pair. Although I have been wearing Ditto around the office. I guess it's a good sign when people don't come up to you and ask "Did you knit that?"
So, I'm working yesterday and I get an e-mail from KnitPicks.com announcing their Zephyr Needles. I drop everything, log onto the site and just buy myself a set! I couldn't concentrate! It was payday, and I promised myself something nice. Impulse buys are the best! I even threw in a copy of EZ's Knitting Workshop! Can't wait!!!
In other news, I'm chugging away at my first shawl. Each row gets longer and longer, and likewise takes longer and longer to knit! But I'm having so much fun.
Last night, Dennis became kind of interested in what I was doing, and wanted to try a stitch himself! Instead, he ended up knitting a whole group of stitches! (k3, yo, s1, k2, psso!) A little sloppy, but he did it! I even left his sitches in... just because. :-)
OK, time for work. Then Cape Cod if the weather forecast holds out.
