8:20: Knit-a-Saur gets up. Note, not wakes up. Stupid insomnia. Takes lots of pictures. Goes upstairs, does not eat breakfast, but makes a Cantonese Chicken Salad for the potluck in Asian Studies. Except we had no lettuce.
10:00: Goes to the college. Drops off salad, goes to the old workplace to buy lettuce. Discovers that shortly after I quit, there was a fire and a flood and electrical problems there. It is falling apart without me.
11:00: Get a late birthday present! (A bit more than a month late)!!! Pretty Pretty jacket! *Add get picture of jacket to to-do list.
12:00: Sorts and uploads pictures of WIP for WIP Wednesday. Note that less than halfway through a month, I have gone through 167% of Flickr bandwidth. I may need to create another account. Sigh. They REALLY need to start accepting Paypal.
Here are the WIPs:
Non-Fluffy Cuff Mitts: (Or, mitt as it may be. Is.) I am out of yarn. Need to buy more. Today. Yay! I am actually quite fond of these. They are warm.
Give the People What they Want:
Unphoto’d as there has been nothing done since the last post involving it.
1:00: Downtown. Look to see if IK is anywhere yet. It isn’t. Bought catnip, cashed a cheque, bought tapestry needles, cable needles, lot’s of colorful DPN’s, and more Moods to finish mitts. Discover that there is a knitting group in my town! And they meet tonight! Yay!
If anyone wants to explain the cable needles, I won’t complain. :P Those are some weird looking pieces of metal.
2:00: Head home on a bus. Knit more mitt while watching crap TV. Realize again how much seed stitch sucks on randomly sized DPNs. Sigh. Also realize that I can’t make the mitts match. Sigh again. Oh well, my mom doesn’t mind!
3:00: Phone call. I can do my drivers test next Wednesday! Yay! However, I have a class. . . Luckily, it’s my dad teaching, so I can get out of it. I may be able to drive soon I may be able to drive soon! Not that the environmentalist in me will let me much. But still. Then, to celebrate, I finish the kitty dimsum. See:
Not all that interesting, are they? And only one of my cats likes them. The one who doesn’t usually like catnip, strangely . . .
4:00: Cast on swatch for Coronet.
5:00: Maybe 20 rows done? Not liking cables. Must eat pizza.
5:40: Back to knitting. I’m considering doing homework, but not very seriously. I’m not actually sure what homework I have . . . Besides, I’m going to a knitting group in 40 minutes. That’s nowhere near enough time to do homework.
My parents have decided that I’m channeling someone far older than me. Why? Because I go out to knitting groups and to play Go in libraries. Sigh.
6:30-10:00: Hang out at a knitting store feeling very young and inexperienced. However, not out of place. Knitters are very accepting people. Got maybe 4 inches of the cable done. Prettiest thing I have ever knit! But, pictures will have to come tomorrow. I’m sleepy and heading off to munch out and go to sleep!
