You know, going to work when you don’t like where you work is very difficult. I’ve been struggling with that for a while now. However, I’m finding out – going to work when you don’t like where you work and where you only have a few days to go is much harder! Everyday I want to just not go to work. I have 5 days left. I’m taking Friday off, and trying to take off Monday as well – which would leave me 3 days. And I don’t really plan to stick around for for the whole day on my last day. But I have to say – although its hard to get there, being there is a lot better knowing that I don’t have to be there – in fact, this time next week I will be done! Its been difficult not to giggle and smile – I didn’t want to bum out my co-workers by acting all giddy, so I was trying to contain it, but I keep on just laughing at things. I bet they can’t wait for me to go too! They are having a party for me this Saturday night – how nice is that? I’m looking forward to it – I do work with a great group of people, and will miss them.
I got home from work to find another box. I’m starting to think I have a problem….I think I need Yarn Anonymous. Really. No, really – I have a yarn addiction. I suppose there are worse addictions to have, but its bad when I blank out for a minute on what I ordered.
I opened the box, rummaged around…hmmm..what the heck did I order all this lace weight for? Oh, that’s right. The Kimono Shawl from Folk Shawls. I couldn’t make up my mind so I ordered a couple…
This is Knit Picks Shimmer in Turquoise Spelendor – 70% baby alpaca, 30% silk. I love this. The colors are great, and its soft. I’m not sure about it for the Kimono though…
This is Knit Picks Shadow in Sunset. 100% Merino. Love this one – the color is a bit darker than the picture. Very autumnal. I think this is the one for the Kimono Shawl!
This is Knit Picks Alpaca Cloud in Mist. 100% baby alpaca. I’m sort of “eh” on this one – I think it would probably make a nice shawl, but I like brighter colors. This is very very very pale purple.
I also bought a set of Knit Picks US #1 DPN’s – I can’t wait to use them. I think I love them. I tried metal DPN’s before but they were so heavy they kept on falling out of the stiches. These seem as light as bamboo. Love them! I also bought the little tool bag from the KIPer Knitting bag line – I wanted to see the fabric. I’m not sure I’d like using this as a purse, but I think the concept is nice. Just would rather have other fabric options.
So other than my on-going issues with Dan, I’m feeling pretty good. I have a few too many projects on the needle (and I’m fighting the urge to start the Kimono Shawl), but let’s review what is good in my life right now:
- 4, possibly 3 more days in current job
- Have Friday off
- Going to Nonna’s Yarn Cafe in Denville on Friday to sign up for two classes
- Going shopping after that for new work clothes
- Party on Saturday
- Knitting group on Saturday
- Spinning retreat the following weekend
- Supportive and wonderful husband at all times
- New yarn
- This is my 75th post, and I’ve made some really good friends through the blog, and everyone is very supportive.
Life is really good! So I think that I’d like to give back. How about a yarn contest? Just comment and let me know if you are interested in getting….
