isa had her 15 month well check this morning. of course, I told my boss I'd be late, most likely rolling in around 11. her appointment was at 8:30 and over by 9. haha! so this is how I entertained myself for an hour and a half this morning:
if only all days could start out like this... a vanilla latte, a chocolate croissant, knitting and michael krasny (wow, he looks nothing like I'd imagined!) on my radio/phone.
still chugging away at orangina. I decided to join the front and back together at the armpits instead of waiting until the ribbing (to avoid the dreaded seaming) and thought I was doing rather well until I realized I had managed to eliminate all the yo's on one side and add a bunch on the other. I'm not sure where my brain was last night and it took me a long time to figure out what to do to try and fix the mess I'd created. luckily, it was only about an inch or so in, so I was able to fudge it a bit and I don't think it will be too noticeable. especially since I don't think many people will be wanting to get that close to my armpits any time soon either.
I actually had a fellow knitter stop by and chat with me for a couple minutes, too! she just moved to the area and had already noticed that there are no yarn stores within a 15 mile radius - a fact that I've been lamenting ever since I picked up knitting. I still think someone (anyone??) needs to open one. preferably right next door to peets. or maybe right inside of peets. that would be great! thanks!
anyway, I think I'm going to go for another six inches or so before I start the ribbing. I'll have to try it on once I get some more length to decide exactly where I want the ribbing to begin. have I already mentioned what a great knit this is? I really am loving it and can't wait to be done! am I being unrealistic to think I can have it done by this weekend?
