A blog about my life, knitting, and other stuff.

Mason-Dixon Inspiration

I was supposed to work today. I dropped the kids off at their respective childcares and went to the store. My boss took a hard look at me and said, "Are you sure you don't want to go home?" I stayed for a little while to give her time to pick up some lunch and then headed out. Since I have been reading Ann and Kay's book I have been feeling guilty about my Psychedelic Squares Afghan. I started this thing in August of 2004 and I've only got 31 squares knit! I was aiming for 100 but Kay made hers with 80. The last time I worked on it was in July! Since I didn't think I had the wherewithal to knit cables or lace today I grabbed up my bag of squares and worked on seaming them while watching Hustle & Flow. I managed to get two sets of four squares seamed. At this rate I should be done in December of 2009.

My son came into my room this morning. I told him happily that he wasn't five anymore, he was six! He cried.
