Peer Presure

I haven’t been knitting a lot this week – I am not sure why other than I’m wrapping up at the current job, and I’ve been a little stressed.   And just distracted.  I’ve knit a little on the train – but mostly I’ve been reading or sleeping.   But the week has gotten better each day, and today I left work early, and here I am  – home about 2 hours before I normally get home (yep, I really left early).  And tomorrow I have the day off because  we are going to a concert tomorrow night and it just seemed like a good idea to take the day off.  Anyway, so back to not knitting – so everything was sitting in the basket, getting dusty.  And I was starting to wonder that maybe I am bored with knitting…

Until Chris totally peer pressured me about Cobblestone (told me that I should be working on it since she was).  And sent me on a huge guilt trip about it (said she was making hers for her anniversary as a gift for her husband).  And then sparked my competitive spirit (reminded me that she started hers after I started mine and that she was on the sleeves already).  So guess what I did on the train this morning?


Sleeve #1 – sure, I haven’t actually finished the body, but that’s a minor point.  What is important is that now I’m winning….

So tonight is pizza, tomorrow I’m off, and Friday is my last day.  Then a whole week off.  And I plan on finishing this sweater – way ahead of Chris.  Life is good.

    But……….if you do finish before me, I’ll gladly drop my sleeves off for you to finish up for me – whilst I’m eating the scones you are making for me.
