Bits ‘n Pieces

June 16th, 2008 · No Comments

I’ve now officially been working at my job for a week and one day. I like it. There are still some things I’m unsure about, but most of it is starting to become familiar. At the moment I’m concentrating on the front desk, although there is a strong possibility that I’ll move to the actual […]

Various knitting FO’s

March 20th, 2008 · No Comments

I don’t do this often, but I’m particularly proud of the three projects I most recently uploaded to Flickr and Ravelry, and so– I’m showing off here, too. Behold, my three most recent Finished Objects (click the thumbnail to see the big pictures at Flickr): Mitt Envy, fingerless mitts with a cable, knit with Koigu […]

I feel ill.

December 5th, 2007 · No Comments

Not in a ughIthinkI’mGoingToThrowUp kind of a way, but in a sick feeling in my soul kind of a way. I lost my hat. Not just any hat. My Irish Hiking Coronet hat. A hat made with expensive yarn, a hat that caused me a lot of trouble to make. I finished it in September, […]

Yup, it’s begun. I’ve only been listening to it for an hour, and I’m already sick of it. I really need my boss to come in so she can switch it to the oldies station. I dressed up for Halloween this year. I was too tired to upload any pics last night, but when I […]

So, yesterday and the day before, I ended up taking my very first sick days since I started working here. That’s a pretty good track record, eh? Anyway, I woke up that morning feeling like I hadn’t gotten any sleep at all (and having pulled a few all-nighters in my life, I *do* know how […]

I’m going to go insane.

August 31st, 2007 · No Comments

Okay, so. This week has been so slow. And today has been slower. There are several reasons for this. The first is that I haven’t been sleeping well (for reasons unknown), so I am dead tired. Going to see Hairspray at 9:30 PM on Wednesday night did not help this situation. The second is that […]

It’s official.

I’ve decided who my Most Hated Artist Played By KOSY is. This was not an easy decision. Even the groups/artists I like get played too much (I hear at least four Carpenters songs a day, and they only play about 8 different ones, so it gets old). But there are several artists that I just […]

A tangled mess.

August 22nd, 2007 · No Comments

That is what I have managed to make out of my 100% hemp yarn. That’s what I get for thinking that I could wind it into a ball without the aid of a swift or even a chair back. It will probably take an hour to untangle. Joy. It’s a pretty color, though. A very […]

I finally finished!

August 6th, 2007 · No Comments

I finally got around to blocking Jen’s wedding present, and I gave it to her on Harry Potter Eve. With all that went on immediately thereafter, I haven’t been able to think much about it. But I just uploaded a few photos, and I can’t resist sharing. Project: Shoulder Shawl in Cherry Leaf Pattern from […]

Random Thoughts (with a few actual updates stuck in here and there)

June 22nd, 2007 · No Comments

It’s a slow day at work. I find it rather– ironic that now, where I’m working somewhere that updating my journal from work would be perfectly acceptable, I hardly ever do it. But when I was working somewhere where doing such a thing would be frowned upon, I did it all the time. Anyway. I’m […]
