Ah today has been a long day. I am glad it is almost over. No knitting today…. not yet at least. Maybe a little before bed. Been working on the C4 cardi over the weekend – and it is coming along. this one is a top down raglan sleeve construction, and boy is it ever neat to be able to try something on as it is being knit. Good style to try out on a bolero or short jacket/shrug thingie.
Weekend was really nice. Saturday afternoon we have friends visiting from Holland, then pug sat Max – a friend’s fawn pug. Sunday we ate ourselves stupid at a great restaurant in Putney called the Pheonix. Yummy! Monday a friend fed us lunch, and of course we ate ourselves stupid, and then played some drunk scrabble. Then back to work today – what a shocker!
Got yelled at by a guy feeling frustrated that his project has sat with legal for 5 weeks – my colleague sat on it for 3, then passed it to me with minimal information. Basically dropped me in it but neglected to tell me. Nice. Doubly mad – I wanted to meet Laura as it was her bday drinks but instead ended up doing damage control for the joker who was such a jerk to me.
So belated birthday wishes Laura, and apologies for missing out!!
On a happier note, I believe the Knit Picks parcels should be shipping shortly. The whole thing was held up by one participant who went AWOL. Since I’ve had no response despite a number of emails asking to get in touch, including on her blog, we have just had to go ahead without her. It just wasn’t fair to keep delaying everyone else’s parcels. Still, I hope she managed to get her order in today – I saw she updated her blog so hopefully got my messages.
More fun news – DF and I have settled on a wedding venue – ol’ stomping grounds for me, Banff, Canada. Can’t wait. It will be cold and crisp (living in London I really miss the cold crisp winters), but not too cold!! I also found a lady who will help me make my invites, which will be fun too. What they are going to be is under wraps! But when they are all done and mailed out I’ll post some piccies!!
Now more questions for you my dears – if you could choose what stock is being carried in your dream knitting store – what would you choose? And what would make it your dream store? (haha these questions are going somewhere, I promise!!)
