Like The Queen
Whatever happens to strike my fancy, but surely some sort of fiber content.


Dearest Bess,
Can so totally identify w/a packed out, getting more full every second schedule.
We would love to have some of your "looks like rain" weather - Philly is dry as a bone.

Well, I hope this just means we'll get to see you on the 29th! :-)

And as far as I'm concerned, if you're knitting something for someone else, and don't get to keep it, then you should at least have the pleasure of knitting it, right?! Hating the yarn and/or pattern AND having to give it away is really making the whole ordeal a chore, rather than a hobby, ya know?

Schedules! Mine are driving me crazy. Just when I get everything running easily at work and think I have a couple of weeks to roll out in front of me like some yellow brick road or magic carpet, I realize that every moment, spare and essential, in my calendar is spoken for. Just when I thought I could slip on ovah to Richmond (an old Essex County expression) for next week’s TNK’s I realized I have to be out of the office Monday afternoon, Wednesday afternoon and all day Thursday. No going anywhere for me this Tuesday. On top of that, as I begin to plan real vacation time - a whole week off, not just a Monday afternoon - I see that the VLA convention is the same exact days as the KRRetreat and the week in October I planned to take off is at exactly the same time the library director’s annual meeting. Well, I can change my vacation week and postpone the TKN Tuesday, but sheesh! Besides we have guests coming in from two directions over the weekend and I have to work Saturday.

Of course, that means I get today off. A sweet long Friday with nothing to do. BD suggested taking a ramble and we may still do it, though today has the look and smell of rain. We can decide later. Whatever we do, I’ll take plenty of time to knit Auction Socks. Whether it will be to continue to slog on with AS#1, which is sooooo uninspiring, or whether I just abandon that sock and start on AS#2 with something pretty and girlie while I wait for a more-appealing-but-guy color to come in is still undecided, but at the moment interesting is edging out dooty'n'responsibility'n'thrifty by just a hair. I have a serious problem with making my pleasure and delight into a task master’s whip. Just doesn’t seem like a healthy karmic balance to me.

ooops. Got called away from the computer for a bit and the muse has abandoned me. Best go look for her among the sock yarn stash. Ta. Good knitting.
