Over came the IT Department

It’s a Monday!! So I have not posted for awhile and that is because for one I can’t get on to Blogger from work because our IT department has the site blocked and I can only post from the dojo (our karate school, San Jose Japan Karate-do Center) and secondly because I had no idea what to post! But now that I have read up on how to post to my blog via email, watch out! I am going to be able to post things when ever I get the notion and I get them a lot lately!

Yesterday was the Stitch n’ Bitch weekly gathering and there were several in attendance, at least the most since I started coming. I so look forward to Sundays meeting with the girls. They are so helpful to a beginner like me and they have such a great talent and I am continually inspired. I try to soak up as much knowledge as I can every Sunday. So I brought my niece’s Christmas gift there and was so upset because I though that I mad a HUGE mistake. To me it looks like the raglan armholes were completely off and that I had to frog it back to the decreases. But thanks to Janice and Mary, they shined a bit of knowledge my way and showed me that it was fine. So now I am on to making the front. And before I left last night I had to get some understanding on the pattern for the Clapotis that I am knitting. I was just about to finish Section 2 and start Section 3 (straight rows) and in rows 6 and 8 there were instructions that I was not familiar with. So Emy came to my rescue and showed me what to do. So you know that I got home at about 8pm and continued knitting until I finally DROPPED my first row on my Clapotis!! I was so excited to see how that was going to work so I stayed up until it was dropped. I wanted to keep knitting until I got to drop the second one but I just couldn’t hang on any longer. My head hit the pillow at about 12:30am. This morning I felt a sense of accomplishment, however my warm fuzzy feeling was quickly flattened when the reality of 5:30am set in and only had 5 real hours of sleep.

Ok, I am going to get some real money paying work done now. Until another notion hits…

  2. That first stitch dropping is kind of exhilerating, huh? :)
