Random Monday

There's a pile of work sitting beside. Work work, not fun work like knitting. I've had to cancel two holidays days at the end of this week and take work home - so I'm frustrated and bitter and stalling. So, while the pile gathers dust, here are some random goings on:

1. I have (finally) turned the first corner on the big green shawl. There are two mistakes that won't be obvious to mere mortals, and knitters are too nice to point them out, so they're staying in. I have a photo, but the camera battery is dead - so you'll have to be patient.

2. I've got one class left before my summer break. I seem to have picked up a private student, even though I promised myself I'd take the summer off.

3. I've been sewing more than knitting lately. It seems to have cured my knitter's block - and I've got some new clothes. No harm there.

4. The traveling stash made it to Ottawa in one piece. Two big bags stuffed with yarn and pattern books, actually. I brought them to the Bridgehead Knit Night last week and everyone had a good browse. I wish I'd taken a picture of the stash as it was spread out across the tables - what a sight it was.

5. I had a great time at the Bridgehead Knit Night. Thanks to everyone for being so welcoming. I must stop by more often.

There was something else, but I can't remember. That seems to be my standard state of mind these days.

I'd much rather be knitting...

I'm looking forward to seeing some finished pics of the big green shawl!
