In Blue, or Black.

I brought some FOs over to David's mother's house last night to show her. She knits and can therefore appreciate. (Most everyone else I know just thinks it's quirky that I make things, but she quilts and paints and knits and crochets, so going to her house with my knitting bag is perfectly natural.) She brought out this book of knitting patterns to show me, and I pretended to like the book. I didn't. I don't recall the title, but it was from the 80s and had lots of scary sweaters with dolman sleeves. I was glad she didn't try to foist off any more Red Heart on me, since I feel like I have to take whatever she gives me since she so wants me to have it, but I'm not going to use it and it just takes up valuable real estate in my office.

She loved the Airy Scarf I'd made in Rowan Kidsilk Haze. She kept touching it. Oddly, she was more impressed with that than Branching Out. Before we left she said, smiling sweetly, "I really like that light scarf. In blue, or black." I believe that is supposed to be a directive and I'll have to order some more Kidsilk Haze.

Shortly after yesterday's whiny post, I chatted online with Chris. Inexplicably whenever I'm feeling most awful, he suggests lunch. The suggestion always occurs before I even mention I'm down. (I'm sure it's mere coincidence, but I enjoy thinking it's telepathy.) And then he lets me go on and on about my issues and I always feel much better even though nothing is different. I guess my angst just winds up feeling acceptable, vs. merely pathetic. We'll be lunching tomorrow, since this morning I woke up with a sinus headache. Goddamned pollen.

I hope your feeling better today!
I woke up in a sad mood yesterday too. I had no real reason and everything was OK but I felt really sad. It turned out to be a totally crappy day as well but as Annie promised "There's always tomorrow".

I always hated her optimism!!!

Your bag is ROCKIN'!!!
