Nine And a Half Repeats
Look, I'm telling you, I'm across this project, Mum! I've factored in the differentials and written up a proactive forward looking....Hey, stop taking pictures while I'm strategising!
You should have seen the look on her face when I insisted on removing her from the knitting. She'd fallen fast asleep on it and she was NOT impressed.
I'm really enjoying knitting this thing. I was a bit daunted by the number of repeats I had to do: 23!!! (or possibly 27 - I've put the book down somewhere). But I'm cruising along happily with this - I love the way the colours are working out, and it's simple enough to be relaxing without being so simple it's mindnumbing. And purple is always good. You know it.
I think I've caught mrspao's blues.....I'm tired, and feeling icky, and I can't find a book I want to read, and the real kicker? I have money to spend this week (having finally paid off the STR sock club debt of DOOOOOM), and I can't find any yarn I like enough to make the effort to buy. Also, I'm looking forward to working late tomorrow. When I include certain other factors, it becomes clear that I'm heading for one of my funky little depressions. Crap.
Good thing for the day: Chris' 100 things meme. I learnt some interesting stuff - Basic Training???? I am SO impressed! I may do one of these for myself if I can think of 100 interesting facts!
Bad thing for the day: I wanna go visit mrspao so we can sit on the couch and cuddle her cats and eat chocolate and sulk together. But I can't. Poop.
