You know those weeks. The ones where nothing seems to go right. The entire world seems a bit off axis. Okay, so I was a royal B this week. Even my normally cool work persona was blown. Everyone at work now knows that I can be utterly unreasonable. All in all, many important things were accomplished. My team lead and manager assisted in getting the right people locked into the right conference room long enough to get the input we needed for the Very Important Documents that were not getting attention. Many long hours were put in. I confirmed my deep and abiding loathing for Citrix Server. Whoever designed that nasty bit of software should be tortured. Still, I was no fun to be near.
If nothing else, this week confirmed that my decision not to enter the Knitting Olympics was a good thing. The Pirate Hat is still kitted and ready for knitting one of these days. I did finish my surprise for my friend and it has been posted. I'll put up some pictures when she has received it. I also finished half of the first sock in the Vintage Socks KAL. It is in a deep purple shade of Wildfoote. Again, pictures to follow.
Much weakness ensued upon completion of Surprise. I visited Suzoo's and there was a front room sale. I mean, $3 a ball yarn and I wanted enough to make the Aran Rose pattern in the latest Interweave Knits.
