I have just purchased a new computer and have not had time to move my pictures not that I have taken pictures of my knitting progress. What I have done now looks like much. I am almost done with the sleeves for my never-ending sweater. YAY!
It was suggested to me by Steph that I should throw the sweater a party when I am finished, and that is exactly what I am planning. My question is when I should set a date for this party. I want people to have time to add it to their schedule, but I don’t want to force myself into a deadline that I can’t meet. I think that when all of the knitting is finished I will pick a date. Hopefully that will be by the end of the week.
Now to address the post title with a few random things that have been on my mind lately.
Why is that every time I try to purchase a replacement for something that has worn out (ie undergarments, shoes, shampoo, deodorant, etc.) I find the old, perfectly functional, items discontinued and no longer available. Is the product turn over every 15 days or what? Am I the only person with this problem?
Also, I seem to spend money in big chunks and this week has topped all the others this year. I tend to be a HUGE cheapskate but whenever I start spending I buy a few large items all at once. I don’t know why I do this, but I think I feel guilty for a much shorter amount of time even if there is a lot more guilt all at once. I bought a new computer, new sheets, and new running/walking shoes this weekend. YIKES!
I hate day light savings, really, really hate it. First, I think we should pick a time and stick with it. The week after we change our clocks sucks for me, I am tired at the wrong time and feel like I am waking up at the wrong time too. Second, it gets dark at 5PM, and that sucks. Soon I will start driving home in the dark. Arizona, here I come.
I thought I was getting really old because a lot of the drivers I see seem sooooo young. The I found out that in KS you can drive at 14! In WI you can’t start driving until 15 1/2, no wonder these kids look young, they are!
It has been a beautiful weekend here in KS, we were in the 70s for highs. I am not looking forward to winter at all, except that it seems to be “knitting season.”
I am going to try and get some sweater-that-never-ends progress pics to show everyone soon. There is finally a light at the end of the tunnel of this really long project. We’ll see if it gets finished soon.
