Ying and Yang
Ying. I am so unbelievably irritated tonight. According to the business card that I picked up the last time I was at the snooty yarn shop, they are open until 8 pm on Thursdays. Says so, right on the card. Anyone else see this as a bad omen? So, I took the craptastic skein of Koigu with me to work and planning to go all the way to the other side of town afterwards to exchange it for the 2 that they are holding for me. (I called about that earlier this week. I am not so confident that I will have enough with just one skein per sock.) I stop home quickly on my way to the shop to get Eric after his exam (more on that later) and we set off to the other side of town. The conversation was excellent; we haven’t talked this much in almost 2 months. I grab my knitting bag and climb out of the car thinking that the windows of the @#$#%& store look pretty dark. Sure enough, the hours posted on the window do NOT match what is on their business card. The one I just freakin’ got. I swear, once this yarn thing is straightened out, I am not going back. I don’t care how much great sock yarn and hand paints they have. I. Will. Not. Yang. As I mentioned already, Eric took his board exam today. We have to wait 6 excruciatingly long weeks to get the results. (I’d ask you to keep your fingers crossed, but that would make it hard to knit.) So, tonight, we went out to celebrate. Eric will pick up Caleb tomorrow, so we are childless for the evening. And here I am blogging instead of having a wild night with the hubby. So much for middle age! We had a very nice dinner – spent way more money than we should have, but hey we don’t do it often. I am keeping this short so I can work on the tank top. I have started the armhole shaping on the back and am almost done with the bust increases on the front. I have started into the last skein – think happy, yarn lengthening thoughts. I am too lazy to take pics tonight, but hope to have it nearly finished soon.
