On my way..
Hello my friends,
I will warn you in advance, this post shall be nearly devoid of knitting content. The reason being, I am on my way to Mexico to meet my family! Pretty neat, huh? My dad is taking my mom there for her birthday, and us kids (I still fall in the latter category, despite my advanced age of two and twenty years.) are tagging along. In order to counteract the horror of going out and buying a swimsuit (side note: I was unaware until yesterday of all the possible ways for your butt to look weird. I was happy in my ignorance.) I have been promised gorgeous beaches and Mayan ruins! Which is a wee bit more exciting than my normal knitting adventures. I’m sortof hoping to avoid hiking to the ruins today though, as I woke up at 4:30 this morning, after staying up very late last night at a concert. (Iron and Wine, and it was MAGICAL.)
Despite all my recent adventures, I haven’t completely forgotten about my knitting. I do, of course, have the obligatory sock in my handbag, and I intended to work on my friend’s long overdue fingerless gloves, but it appears that I did not bring the proper size of needles. I forgot that I worked the lace cuff and the palm in different needle sizes. I am now inordinately worried that I am going to knit faster than I ever have, and finish the sock in my handbag and it’s mate, and then have nothing to knit. I know this is ridiculous, but the fear is very real. Especially since it took me half an hour to convince myself that two knitting projects was plenty. Now I only have ONE, and it’s making me crazy. In better news, my sock project matches my new bikini. This pleases me inordinately.
