I’m about as excited as crap. I am really near the end of the tunnel and it’s not a train. I have five orders I would like to get out between now and the end of the month..well, seven, but I will settle for the five if I can get them done. I will then be ahead of the game…that’s right, you heard it, I will be ahead of the shipping schedule.
I am saying this with all the humbleness because we know how
picky dedicated the knitting goddess is. She doesn’t like celebrations in the end zone – especially from the red zone. (You didn’t know the knitting goddess was a football fan?)
Two more orders are ready to go and there’s a rasta and a classic slouch that’s going to Norway. Believe it or not, my next decision will be whether to relax into the ahead of schedule phase or burn through the rest of the open orders to get them out of the way. I am leaning towards the latter but I will probably end up with a unique combination of the two.
Tonight is knit night at the mall and I want chinese food but I can’t consider Panda Express Chinese food…or food. Nothing against them except the taste. So, I will have to plan b whatever I have for dinner there tonight and I am thinking I will leave the mall and head north instead of south and go to Mariano’s for some fruit. We went there after church on Sunday and they had this container of green and purple grapes that I thought I would eat just a few of and finished it off the same day – it lasted a few hours but only because I was knitting. I also got a nice little salad. And they had Ding Dongs and a live piano player. The prices are slightly higher but that will just serve as a deterrent. The fruit was great.
At knit night, I decided I didn’t want to take something I had to get done. I want to take something I want to make. That means I have to finish off one of the hats before I go and come back and do the other during late night. That worked out well last night. So, it’s the rasta this morning and the classic slouch later.
I ended up ordering the fiber on line – did I tell you this already? I have enough to get through at least two of the hats – and I only need two for the next three days – the fiber should have enough time to get here. (Again, humble, I know how the goddess can mess with shipping lines.)
I haven’t decided what to take with me to StitchCraft and that makes me happy because when was the last time that decision was in my hands? Yes, when I decided to make the taupe cowl that I work on up here but that was a long time ago in knit time. I am thinking I will pull some yarn to do this and have fun with it. The thing that intrigues me is it will need three balls of yarn and when I purchased the chunky yarn, I did it in lots of four. I am betting it doesn’t take all three. I find things like that interesting. But I’m a maverick.
I am off to pull the first three balls of the same color chunky yarn that I find (not the expensive ones) for the scarf and then I have a hat to make before the evening of fun!
