Greetings from RollerCoasterLand, where Mr. Right and I will forever be apart. Together. Apart. Rinse, repeat. It's been a tough week, as Mr. Right is preparing to head to Hawaii (!) for work. For a month. Really? We're inseperable for 5+ years and he goes nowhere exciting for work, and then we're apart for 2 months and he scores a trip to Hawaii? Life is *very* unfair (Yes, I'm completely aware that life gets WAY more unfair than this in all kinds of ways. But at the moment, I'm not coping all that well.)
In other news, I cooked for the first time in 2.5 months -- dinner for 6 -- on Sunday night. It was kind of weird being back in the kitchen, but but also fun. And sad. Dinner turned out pretty well though. We had lasagna, artichoke garlic bread, caesar salad and dump cake for dessert. All in all, a pretty good evening.
I also managed to get back to knit night on Monday, and worked a bit more on the Vest From Hell, which is behaving itself at the moment, but is definitely going to be too big when it's finished. Hmmph. Perhaps it would make a good blog giveaway prize? I guess we'll see once I get it all wrapped up.
I got home early enough to take a picture in my driveway (lovely concrete, no?), to give y'all a better idea of the actual color of this thing. That part I like. A lot.
No more progress on the Hedgerow Socks as I seem to have mislaid the pattern and haven't bothered to print another copy. But I have decided to keep on knitting them, thanks to all your helpful comments last week. I think they'll be pretty cute -- and loud! -- once they're finished. But here's a slightly better shot of the color. Yay for sunlight! It's RED, for sure...
But the more I look at it, the more I like it. I should probably look for the pattern or something, assuming the knit fairies aren't going to show up and work on them while I'm sleeping...
That's about all the excitement I have to offer this week. Fortunately for you, there's lots more interesting stuff going on over at WIPW. You should go check it out. Seriously.
