Writing away, all the long day…

Other people’s vacations…

I look upon them with both envy and chagrin.

Burnout, thy name is Steph.

I’ve always been able to walk for fairly long distances with no ill effect.

So I didn’t think twice about doing 5-6kms or more a day, 5 days a week.

Gets me moving, but I did realize one thing I overlooked: more walking means remembering to replace the dang insoles on your shoes.

Blisters aren’t that big a deal, I guess…

In stitches…

The only thing that compares to how giddy I get over yarn is when I get new fabric.

Being able to order custom geeky prints on fabric? Makes me a very happy camper.

Almost makes up for the LYS near work closing down :(

Ice cream headache…

Best way to not aggravate lactose intolerance and lose weight?

Don’t have ice cream for lunch.

Just an idea… and one I failed at utterly during a particularly stressful day.

Selfish knitting…

with one comment

I give away most of the stuff I knit. I like to knit, but there are only so many shawls and scarves one needs.

Not to mention there are quite a few projects that are just so neat and I want to try, or an awesome colour of yarn I just had to have… and then when I’m finished, I can’t think of any reason why I would ever wear it.

So I decided to make myself a sweater. And I actually started it early enough that I should be able to wear it this fall.

You hit my car repeatedly to the point where you rip through the top coat and paint down the the metal, I put subwoofers against the shared wall, and blare them from 8am to 11pm.

Passive aggressive? Yes. But I’m not starting an altercation with the 6 people who are crammed into a place that is barely big enough for myself and my cats.

Apparently when I decided that I should make a pair of socks, I also decided to CAST ON ALL THE SOCKS!

I now have three pairs on the go.

I need more time in my day to knit. Or at least not be burnt out.
