I wasn't born with wings, so I'm trying to make my own
Monday, February 03, 2003  

I need to figure out a way to do what I want when I want and still get paid! If I figure it out, I'll let you know. Dragging myself off to work this morning was brutal. Mark was still in bed, it was in the fifties, and my shawl was calling my name! It turned out to be a grey day, but home would have still been better than work! And even after I got home, I only got three rows done on the shawl. I'm into the seventh repeat now, so not so much more to go. I really wish that I hadn't flubbed the yarn size because I'd only have seven rows to go if I had done things correctly, but now I have thirty one more! And at 350 stitches a row, that's nothing to sneeze at! I'll be up over four hundred stitches by the time I'm done. Yikes! This shawl moves in the opposite direction of my attention span. I wish I had started with the tremendous long rows and lace and ended with the short rows of garter stitch. Because at this point, I could really go for some short rows of garter stitch. But of course if I did it bottom up, fixing my gauge problem would have been a lot tougher. So, alls well that ends well. I hate how I do that. I'm sitting here bitching about something that saved my bacon. It is the way it is, and the way it needs to be. And I should just shut my mouth about it. Ok, shutting my mouth now :-) I'm off to pack some lunch for tomorrow. Wish me a happy Tuesday! We're back into the thirties again. Bummer.
