Well I've been back to work for most of the week and I just want to say.... Can I go back on vacation???
Actually it hasn't been that bad, just a really long short week. I picked up some extra shifts at Job# 2, so it feel like I've done nothing but work since Tuesday night. I got off Job # 1 early today and I don't have to work at Job #2 tonight, but I've been using most of the day to catch up on housework and Wandering Cat business, so it's not like I've been relaxing.. or knitting.
And speaking of knitting... UFO August is kind of a bust for me. I only got one project off the needles. I know August isn't over yet, but I'm working tomorrow, and Monday I picked up another shift at job #2, so both those days are a bust. If Dave absolutely leaves me alone Saturday night and all of Sunday (highly unlikely, the boy can't sit still for five minutes) I might be able to finish my fan shawl. But I doubt that will happen.
Also, I kinda negated the whole casting off one project by casting on for this:
It's the long version of the Wollmeise ankle sock. I was going to have Mom test knit it (so I wouldn't have to make a full length sock), but Julie has her on a deadline so it was wait or do it myself. Since I really want to get this pattern out I decided to suck it up and do it myself.
I did get a nice little present today, thanks to my wonderful MomA set of Knit Picks Harmony DPNS, and some much needed stitch markers. Technically it's not really a present, it's a trade for the Addi Click cords I bought her, but I like presents better than trades... so it's a present.
So now that cleaning and business and blogging are done, I'm off to knit until Dave shows up and spoils it all.
