I'm Back...

I've been back for nearly a week now...i did attempt to blog but the bloody computer shut down on me again. It seems for some reason whilst in my account it starts up a program in my husband's account and pushes the CPU beyond its capacity...therefore it shuts down. This machine has never liked me.

The wedding went very well, despite a few set backs...but I shall tell that story when I have the pictures back. I did manage to get from the hotel to the airport, fly back here, and take a cab home all by myself. This is a big deal for me, especially since I hate, (HATE) flying. I had no problems knitting on the plane...even with a big fat sweaty guy next to me.

And the answer to the burning question is.....No. I didn't get the shawl done on time. I'm still working on the thing. I am at the end, it is just straight knitting and purling now but there are now 1,125 stitches per row. I have about 12 rows left. That's 13,500 stitches left. If there was ever a moment for the little elves to show up and finish my knitting this is it. I did bring it and show it to her. She likes it, and I will send it out as soon as it is done. Besides...there's a heat wave all over the country...who needs a shawl right now anyway.

No word on the job yet. Since I am an external canidate they can't tell me anything really. Which translated into "stop calling us you freak!" I'm using my frantic energy to get my portfolio together, catch up on house stuff and knit. Aside from the shawl I am working on the second red/black pedicure sock and charity scarves from some of the more heinous yarn I own. Amy asked if I was knitting a Muppet as well. Yes, it feels like I am knitting with recycled Muppets. But its for a good cause and makes room in my stash.

Sorry for the lack of pics.

Awwwww. I was cheering you on to finish. But you're right-it's too hot for a shawl anyway. :)
