There has been knitting. Not a lot of it, mind you, but enough to keep me sane between quadratic equations. Enough to get me through the GMAT with no visible injuries. That much is done, I've been thoroughly tested and confused and now I have a little piece of my brain back, only moderately damaged.
I finished Red Blob long ago ~ but until Ben submits to a brief photo session, I can produce no evidence. Come on, let Ben know that he needs to strut his stuff and smile for the camera. Peer pressure works! Don the Red. Do it for the Blog!
I'm cruising on Vera's blanket. Now, need I remind you that I should be prioritizing another project, Jessica's blanket, instead? I certainly need to remind myself ~ I find my fingers seeking Vera's project far more often than Jessica's, in spite of the time crunch. I think it's all the fun colors and stitch patterns I've thrown together. By the way, let me know if you're interested in a version of Vera's blanket and I'll put together the pattern and post it here.
Now, I won't be able to type at length today ~ every inch of my body, including my typing and knitting fingers, is achy and twitching. Yesterday, I gardened. Yes indeed, right here in Manhattan, I did battle with stumps, pulled weeds and totted cobblestones hither and yon. The New York Junior League sponsors a wonderful ongoing event called the Playground Improvement Project and I was lucky enough to spend my Saturday digging around outside in the sunlight.
Not only did I accumulate an inch of dirt all over and manage to strain every muscle I didn't know I had, I also was able to spend fun time with fellow knitblogger K-knits! Let me tell you, she wields a mean ax!
