12 hour shift, and a broken needle
This weekend I have been covering some wicked midnight to noon shifts for a co-worker that is out of commission. Last night I managed to finish the entire body of the mohair hoodie before I left work, so tonight I brought along the baby shrug for niece to be ~ planning to finish it, of course. But, alas, sometime between between putting my knitting bag into my car and pulling it out when I got to work, I splintered one of my size 2 bamboo needles. My solution? use one of those white file labels to wrap the splinters, and continue knitting. It is slow going, and tedious, but the cuff is done and so is the first pattern repeat. Yeah Me! Now I must earn my wages (translate: yarn money) and finish some paperwork.
