(If you missed knitting on Wednesday, you might not know that boy bands are making a comeback. This was basically the best news Katharine had ever heard)
I'm going to distract you from the fact that I don't have any new SnB photos to post by sharing some pictures of my dogs when they were puppies. Plus I kind of miss them right now.
They were so sweet as puppies!
|Baron and Dad, co-napping. They have the same color hair!|
|Obligatory Santa pic|
|Probably why we picked him|
|This captures the dog I'm familiar with|
And occasionally I'm lucky enough to receive picture messages like this one:
|Now that I think about it, I don't think I ever requested an explanation.|
You don't even miss the knitting pictures, amiright?!? (Apologies, I'll be more diligent at next week's meeting!)
I run a knitting blog, but I haven't been doing a lot of knitting. During the last Stitch 'n Bitch meeting I spent the majority of the time untangling a ball of yarn. I'd say I'm working on the hat for my sister still, but honestly it has just been sitting neglected in the corner of my room. Like a few of my friends, I'm in full fledged "I'm graduating and I don't really know what I'm doing after May 5th" mode. After several applications went unanswered (believe me, not hearing anything is worse than hearing no) I'm basically a ball of nerves. My friend Donald is in a similar boat, and we often discuss a need to eat pancakes and cry (I don't even like pancakes very much and it still seems like a good idea!).
I know you're all fascinated by this peek into my psyche, but I swear I'm going to bring it all back around to knitting. Because that's what I SHOULD be doing! Knitting has calmed my nerves countless times before, yet here I am flat-out avoiding it. My current evening routine involves compulsively checking my email and every ecology job board I know until I push it all aside to escape into whichever television show Netflix has recommended for me. I think I've avoided knitting because I do some of my best thinking while knitting and, frankly, the future isn't something I want to think about right now.
But personal crisis aside, my sister still deserves a hat! So this weekend I'm going to make an attempt to knit a few rows. This should be easier since I'll be camping with my mammalogy class and unable to mindlessly watch television. Who knows, I might even finish the damn thing!
