Crap...Failure

Friday, November 27, 2009
Arrgggh! I was so close. A post every day for the entire month of November as part of my participation in NaBloPoMo. I was in the homestretch, the last week! And then...I went to the library. The blame rests on the shoulders of the the authors of the three mitten pattern books I picked up last night. They distracted me so much that I completely blocked out everything else. Damn. Oh well, I will still continue and finish out the rest of the month. Besides, there were a couple of days where I posted two or three entries so I'm counting that as balancing the whole thing out. Sure, I won't be eligible for prizes but that's ok. The chances of little old me winning something were probably nil anyways.

In other related news, I'm going to knit a baby blanket before I tackle any more mittens. There are three women in our office who are expecting. I won't be knitting for all of them - one I don't really like (due in December), another I don't really know well enough (due early 2010 I think)but the third is one of my supervisor/boss types whom I get along with quite well. Plus she's not due until May so I've got lots of time. The pattern is super easy but looks quite nice (check out this example). It will mean hours of mindless knitting, plenty of repitition. Perfect for getting through the usually stress-filled holidays. I'll be able to sit in front of the telly and let my fingers fly!

I can sympathize. A trip to the library always derails me for a little while. But hey, you'll have fuzzy warm mittens to show for it!

I work in a library -and I still get derailed every day!

It's a beautiful pattern for the blanket that you've chosen, Karen.

I think you still get an honourable mention.
