knitting saves the day
Today was insanely stressful at work. Basically the day started off with a good “you guys are screwing up” talk from the boss and didn’t get much better from there. It was a discouraging day, saved only by the fact that I brought my knitting. I started a new project last night as my enthusiasm for Zoe was fading fast. I needed to add a big needle, easy breezy project to complement Zoe, so I started the Vogue Cabled Hoodie (fall Vogue mag, #16). I had to make over a hundred phone calls today. Basically, I spent from 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. (with an hour off for lunch) on the phone with needles in hand.
chunky is good
Meet Grover, affectionately named after my aforementioned car that was purple and destroyed in a flood.
Hopefully, this Grover will have a happier ending. Grover is being created from Country Classics Chunky yarn from Brown Sheep. I love this yarn! It’s a thick to thin yarn, but not very drastic in the variation. Just enough variety to make things interesting. This is the boring part of the hoodie, the back. Once the ribbing was finished, it’s all stockinette. Sometimes, boring is good and it gave me some quick gratification in that I was able to get 13 inches of it done today! For once, work was productive. 🙂
