A few days ago, I realized that here it was August already, and I had only taken two days off of work all year. I have 18 vacation days left, and we can't carry them over. I'd hesitated to take them, just in case they cut us back to 4 day weeks again this year.
But then, I realized I needed to take a day. I was tired. Things weren't going well at work. I was stressed. I just needed a break. So, I scheduled a day for tomorrow.
Tonight, I'm sitting here thinking of a long list of things I need to get done, but what I'll actually end up doing is sitting in front of the TV all day thinking about the long list of things I need to be doing instead of sitting in front of the TV all day.
Moving right along...
I haven't warped the loom since I finished the pink and white scarf Saturday night. Interesting thing about that scarf. We had a little birthday dinner for Dennise Sunday, and as soon as I walked in, Mike was asking me to make something for a cancer charity auction. I said, "I have just the thing." It didn't have the pink ribbon he wanted, but it was the right colors.
Almost. That's where the pink scarf went.
Since then, I decided I need to finish up some other projects that have been languishing. I finished this hat.
The yarn is King Cole Splash. I'd cast on 120 stitches with size 7 needles. I don't know what I was thinking. It made a rather large hat. Well, it'll be good for someone who doesn't want to squash her hair. Or someone with a gigantic head. People do come in all shapes and sizes.
I worked a bit more on this sock. I'd cast it on early in July, but it had been languishing since I got the loom.
I have no idea what the yarn is, because I lost the ball band years ago. It is a cotton blend, and the pattern is just a plain vanilla sock.
Well, I'd better get to bed. I don't know why I always think I can stay up late before a day off. I end up waking up at the same time anyway.
