All right, I know it’s been a long time since I have written on the blog. I do have some pictures and some things to write about, but there hasn’t been much time lately, and if it comes down to blogging vs. knitting, I have to choose the knitting time.
Things have been busy and there’s been change over here at Mountain Purl. First – work, I am now working as a federal prosecutor. I started this Wednesday, and boy do I have a lot to learn. I have about 500 pages of legal reading to get through. I need to learn how every thing works in the Colorado District Court, criminal side. I don’t want to make a mistake, and I don’t want a judge to screw with me because I didn’t follow one of the local rules. Yep – lots of learning to do.
This week hasn’t been bad. I won big at Bunko – over 65 bucks which is huge for our group. That was a nice surprise. It’s going in the new car fund, towards whatever I decide to buy sometime next year.
Lots of knitting, lots of ripping. Last night I ripped out the entire Lady Eleanor, because I thought I added too many stitches to the original pattern – so Leanne I ripped too! Hanging Gardens has 7 of the 12 repeats done but I had to take a break from it. I put up a pair of socks for me on Wednesday, out of some hot pink STR. Bought some Kauni over at a Knitted Peace last night and as a bonus saw my knitting bud Joanne which was great. Need to finish the Rowan present, have a great idea for some other Kauni in the stash that I can’t wait to try. The list goes on and on. I need to win the lottery!!!! That way I can knit as much as I want.
Trip next week to DC. How disgusting is that – DC in August? Help I’m melting….. Oh – but I can knit on the plane, and it’s Frontier so I can watch the Food Network and knit. Shut up and knit.
516 days until I can retire. Okay, that’s not so bad. The sun is shining, AND IT’S FRIDAY, and I’m leaving early for a hair appointment which is so over due. Not so bad. Have a GREAT day!
