Sorry guys, I have been absent haven't I???
I am almost over the Cold O' Doom, and have segued nicely into an interesting situation at work. A senior colleague has left to work on a project in another department. Which is good for her - more money, interesting work, etc - but it means that for the next eight months I get to do her job. And I had a total of ONE DAY to absorb all of her tasks and about twelve years worth of accumulated knowledge. Did I post about this before? I forget. Even if I did, you get to sit through it again. So there. So anyhoo, on Thursday I staggered in still sick to work one day before the long weekend to learn all of this stuff. Yay. I have no idea if I'm doing it right. I feel I should be busier. We have a temp, but I'm still doing parts of my job as well. And extra money for these duties?? HAH. That's right, I said HAH. And I have to move desks. I hate that.
Knitting. There's supposed to be knitting, isn't there? I've been working on a shawl using Marta's 2-ply doubled, but I'm just not happy with it - I think I've frogged it four times now. I'm working on another version at the moment - the pattern wants pure garter stitch, but I feel the yarn calls for large chunks of stockinette stitch to show off the colours properly. So I'm trying to mix it up a bit, but I'm not sure if it's working. But, it could just be the knitting blahs - I just don't feel like working on much at the moment. Not sure why - the work thing is lurking at the back of my mind (which is where all the dangerous thoughts hang out), and I'm still getting over this cold.. maybe that's it. I should be finishing Dave's Koigu Sock Number Two, and K's LL Sock Number Two, and my STR Cedar Creek Socks, and the Rainbow Socks my sister has been patiently waiting and waiting for, and my April Project Spectrum project, and the Rowan Felted Tweed Beanie for Dave..... but all I want to do is play Diablo and eat Easter Eggs. Hmmm. How to address this problem? I shall have to think on it further.
Okay, I should go - work beckons and Dave is fidgeting about in the hallway, which means he'd like to get going please.
Sorry I haven't posted in so long - I hope I still have some readers left!! Hello? Guys?
Good thing for the day: My thought processes appear to be slowly returning after the Cold O' Doom.
Bad thing for the day: I have a horrible feeling that I'm out of Diet Coke. NOOOOOO!!!!
