Seriously Hooked

I went out without my knitting.

It seemed like a good idea at the time. I had a bunch of errands and the first was to stop at Micheal to pick up another ball of Sugar'n Cream cotton so I could finish crocheting DS's easter basket. I figured if I had a moment during my later errands, which didn't seem likely anyway, I could work on that.

Well I get to Michaels and they don't have any colors even close to what I need, so I end up just buying a basket (cost less than the yarn would have[whatever].) So I have no more yarn to work with.

When I get to the bakery I end up cooling my heals for 15 minutes sitting on the window seat while they help the 2 dozen customers ahead of me, WITH NOTHING TO DO but twiddle my thumbs. I hate wasting time.

I was lucky enough to plan ahead today for a bday party. I took knitting and worked on the handles of a mini Lucy style bag. I have felt your pain MANY times, though, Jen!

As I get older, I prefer to knit. Tracey Ullman UPDATED! WITH PICS!

Well, I planned ahead. I had blood work to do this morning. I set an appointment because the labs here in Vegas have been very busy due to this. I was told by a neighbor, who is also a phlebotomist, that even with an appt, it could take a while. I took my knitting. I got 4 stitches done.
Then, I had to go to the post office. The parking lot was fairly full. I don't know where the people were, though, 'cause I was next in line when I got in. So much for the knitting I was sure I'd get done today.

Take care!

That's the thing, though, you just never know. I hate sitting, waiting and not knitting makes me very cranky.[**] My husband always asks me if I have not only my knitting with me before we leave, but all the notes, patterns or needles I'll need. He knows me.

I almost always have socks in progress in my purse just in case! My purse is actually a tapestry backpack, which my brother-in-law calls my bowling ball bag! I live in a small city (70,000), it takes me 15 min to get to work, but what if there was a traffic jam? There is a drawbridge on the other side of town, and I have been glad to have my socks with me when caught with the draw up!

I finished my "work project" and none of the other 4 or 5 WIPs I have going is really appropriate for work; too big, too complicated, etc.

I have spent the last week without a work project and it really bugs me, even thought I only work on it for 10 minutes here, 15 there. Those little chunks of time eventually add up, you know, so I am GOING to cast on for a work project tomorrow.

Off to the pattern file and bookshelf!
