current mood: stressed

What do you mean today (okay yesterday now) was Tuesday?? What happened to Monday?!? ...... Oh wait... that was Family Day wasn't it. >_<;; I've gotten all of 16 points done so far for this border (I think I estimated around 63 points total) and... it's DULL! I keep catching myself forgetting which row I'm on or thinking about how many stitches I'd done or if I'm on the right or wrong side...... And the worst thing is, I still haven't managed to memorise the odd numbered rows' patterns yet (which slows me down further still). >_<;

Seeing the end of the shawl slowly coming off the needles is nice but I want to see more of it off! I also want to get rid of the point protector on the end of the circular since it keeps getting caught on things. ^^; I think I'm still on track to finish in time, but that's only with the Team Coach / Medic / Slave Driver on my case to quit procrastinating and keep going. Thankfully, she's been doing a good job catching me whenever I start dallying too much. Perhaps too good? Eek. ^^;

knitius altius fortius (gleefulfreak)

I have to keep from snarking at my tough Bulgarian coach, myself. Otoh, I really want to finish, so that all her encouragement isn't wasted.

And I want to wear the nifty blue stockings. And no one will make the connection. *sigh*

*laughs* But just think of what *you'll* remember every time you wear them. Okay, maybe not the pain and tears. ^^; Good luck on them!

Kiera-I'm Aware

That sounds much more complicated than I am prepared to decipher at such an early hour of the morning. Good luck with that! I love it when I forget that it's a day later in the work week than I originally thought. *sigh of submission* Three days until Friday! Three days until Friday! What did you do on your family day?

*laughs* Having fewer days is good only when it comes to working. When you're under a deadline... >_<;; Sadly enough, other than managing to bake the sour cream cupcakes and toffee candy wombat1138 gave recipes for, most of the time was spent knit, knit, knitting. I wonder why. ^^;;

Kyo -- Disturbance (flamika)

Reading all your knitting posts is reminding me of my aunt, who's crocheting baby blankets for Project Linus.

Continued good luck!!
