I emptied my gym bag, so I could fill it when the gym clothes in the car. I brought my lunch. I'm working on a quasi Christmas gift.
I left the gym bag at home. I dropped my cooked lunch on the floor in the break room. I've ripped back and restarted the quasi Christmas gift three times. I've frogged back another three rows before I put it in time out.
I'm doing a wonderful job of not screaming at Convert to shut the (bleep) up because I'm not the in mood to chat; but she is. I wonder if I could get BBQer to chat with Convert over my head. No, no luck.
Grilltech is being his usual wonderful self and got me a glass of water.
I'd cry do over but I'm afraid the day would turn even worse. So, I smile and be civil when answering Convert - it's not her fault I'm in a crappy mood. I don't tell snippy leads to go to hell when telling them I'm not going to change what they want changed - go through the process that's what it's there for.
My day is getting better and better. Someone had a death in the family and I'll be helping get her stuff completed today. Something I've never done before. It was a learning experience.
The day did get better when I got home, my new boots came in the mail. Now I have to break them in.
I think the pink and blue sum up the day's sunrise.
I've finished my third row and started my forth on the blanket. It's going to be very colorful.
A bunch more squares.
A pretty pink one.
What else have I been doing? I made a sweater.
Isn't the model too cute?
The Alpaca mitts are close to being finished. The second one needs to be ripped back to the start of the thumb gusset. Apparently, I can't count. The first one was ripped back several times, why shouldn't the second one be any different? I'm hoping to have enough to make a second pair for a gift.
Sun set comes earlier and earlier this time of year.
OMG, don't the squares ever stop?

Maybe today shouldn't be a knitting day. I've been sitting for the past 30 minutes waiting for an email to show up and it turns out I never sent it. I'm such a dumbass at times.
I am not having a good morning. Did not want to get out of bed this early. Wanted to stay and get more quality sleep time. Was three minutes late to work this morning, okay that's not so bad. On the desk this morning there was a letter from the cow-orker stating the other machine wasn't on the network and she had put in a ticket to get it fixed. I could log on to another machine and work from it. Hum, no, I can't. I have specialized software on my machine, so I can't run my morning reports. Convert called in sick, so she isn't here to run them either. My admin password isn't working, so I can't move the files from her profile to mine so I can run them on her machine. I think I'd like to go home and go back to bed.
BO came in and got me back to the network about 15 minutes after I asked Troll to run the downloads. I'm having a fun day. On the plus side, Wednesday is a holiday.
The Alpaca is software and colorful. The pattern looks pretty sweet on it. When I do pictures later this week, hopefully I'll have one completed. I have been making progress on the blanket. Very slow progress, but it's progress.
I finally got out of the datamine almost 1.5 hours later. Bed is calling, not sure if I'll do any knitting, but I'll think about it.
First up, is the final package from my Secret Pal: Some awesome sock yarn, love the colors. Size one bamboo's, which will come in handy when I wear out the metal ones on the blanket. A bit of left over sock yarn, that she made me a great pair of socks out of. The socks weren't in the picture because they were in the washer since I had worn them. They're great! Thank you Pal!
Of course, no photo shoot is complete unless I have a cat over seeing my work. Uggy managed to make it three feet out of the house. Saw that I looked her way, and back in she went.
Peaches on the other hand, settled in on the warm bricks to watch.
While thinking of my next big "project" I pulled out the pink frilly yarn for D's requested scarf. I think I have enough left over for a hat, trying to decide if I really want to put myself through that.
Two weeks ago this coming Friday before I had finished Grilltech's vest, a package from Donna Lee showed up. She sent a box of yarn. It sat on the coffee table until I had finished the vest, because of Roxie's proclamation.
Roxie had also sent me a package of sock yarns, which I didn't have to wait a day and a half to open.
I dumped them together on a towel. That's one huge pile of yarn!
