Can I even express in words how FRUSTRATING it is that I’m writing this post over dial-up? I don’t think so. The DSL folks say that it might be another 3-4 business days before we get real network connectivity, here. No blog reading over morning coffee for me, and I’m totally going through withdrawal.
I don’t know what others do when stressed, but I seem to buy yarn. So, in lieu of another picture of an un-blocked Waterlily or a half-completed Tangled Yoke sleeve, here’s some luscious stash enhancement instead!
(The Plucky Knitter’s “Pumpkin Latte” sock yarn. YUM.)
(Long-overdue solid sock yarn purchase–I’m really way too finicky about variegated colors for my own good.)
Aren’t they gorgeous? Just the thing to make a girl feel better about not being able to properly blog-surf.
And, I also have Rhinebeck to console myself. I doubt I’ll be wearing Tangled Yoke, though–I vastly over-estimated the amount of knitting time I’d have during our move. I’m still only about halfway through the second sleeve, and then there’s the yoke and button band and ribbon finishing to consider. I’ll probably still be working on it there! I signed up to be a square in the blogger bingo, along with Marlena. I think it’ll be lots of fun, and for reference I’ll probably look something like this:
I have no idea what hand-knit I’ll be wearing, and my hair may be curlier. (Who has time to blow-dry when there’s YARN to be fondled?!) But I’m really looking forward to meeting some of you virtual folks in real life!
