Post-deadline fatigue


I'm through with you, Size 4 16-inch circular needles.

I have absolutely no knitting to show you. I have just completed two accessory designs, and the patterns for them, over the past five days. Not because I procrastinated, no, it was because I only had FIVE DAYS once the yarn arrived. It hurts, it hurts me!!!


Behold the trash that has accumulated at my jobjob bus stop. When I started this job 3 1/2 weeks ago, the trash collection included only those two large styro cups with the orange straws. Now there's a new element nearly every day. It's nice to have things to watch.


As a break from knit-fest Memorial Day weekend, Chris and I picked strawberries. We now have gallons of flash-frozen strawberries, 23 jars of jams, and have consumed a lot of strawberry slump. If you read that link, note that the slump is the same as the grunt. Heh heh.

haha! Slump. Grunt. Didn't they originally name it that because it would make grunting noises as it baked? Maybe I imagined it.

Maybe I'm just tired, but the photo looked, at first, like you were sticking needles into your eyes. Maybe in frustration at such a short deadline? eep.

STRAWBERRIES!

The Art of Knitting is seldom compatible with deadlines.

Grunt, Buckle, Pandowdy, Crumble, Cobbler, I love all those names and love to eat them all. I picked the rest of my aunt's rhubarb plant last weekend and cut it up and froze it. We'll see how frozen rhubarb fares. Can't wait to see all your designs!
