Rainy Wednesday Randoms


1. Apparently this is the day of not being at my desk. I have a "walk around and help people" thing from 10-10:30, meetings from 11:30-1 and 1-2, a celebration for a coworker's upcoming wedding from 2:30-3, and another meeting from 3:30-4:30. Sheesh. The 11:30 meeting includes lunch, so let's hope it's something vegetarian-friendly.

2. I got a massage on Monday. It was amazing. Things that had been hurting for weeks or months aren't hurting anymore. Between that and the air conditioner, I've been sleeping much better the past few nights.

3. This week is suddenly crazy busy. I have things to do every weeknight, and three nights (so far) next week. I think on Saturday I'll do some errands and then spend the rest of the weekend relaxing, reading Harry Potter, knitting, and catching up on chores. Oh, except I'll probably manage to leave the house for knitting group on Sunday. :)

4. I discovered last night that the correct length of sock for myself (up to the toe decreases) is the span of my outstretched hand, from thumb to pinky, minus the thumb nail. I feel very clever.

5. I. Just. Want. To. Knit. I mean, I always want to knit, but I'm in one of those knitting-obsessed moods. It's nice because I'm getting a lot done, but it's somewhat driving me crazy at the same time.

6. The Holiday Knitting list? Very very long. As a friend said yesterday, "If you're at the point at which my mom is on your list, you must be planning a lot." Um, yeah. We'll see how that goes.

I hate those work lunches - I'm not a vegetarian, but I'm not a big fan of meat except for seafood. I also try to eat healthy and those lunches never are, at least at my office. On the holiday knitting list, I decided this year I am not playing. I got tired of being up until 3 am on Christmas Eve seaming sweaters!!

1. so that means it's not a chatty day for you n me.

2. yay massage! i want another one already, and it's only been a week.

3. my week got crazy busy fast too, so weird.

4. funny. how did you figure that out? show a photo of the sock you are knitting.

5. ravelry's fault. i have 3, no 4 things i want to cast on. and my circ needle bag got lost yesterday, i think in my moms room but it might have gotten lost before we even left here. so frustrating.

6. just keep knitting just keep knitting

So... was there a vegetarian option? I hate work lunches because it's hard to get a gluten-free, dairy-free meal at one...

*responding about earlier posts to this, your most-recent post*: I think our fathers would be very proud of your Christmas-in-July. And Reese, as ever, would be grudgingly amused.

Ooo, good trick, with the outstretched hand. I tried it, and I think that will work great for me! And you may have solved my problem of how to give people handknit socks, without having them try them on before I kitchener the toe. I'll just starting bringing pen and paper and start tracing. =)
