Been back a few days now, have you missed me? I sure have missed you lot. I received all your emails but couldn’t reply to any, something about the server. Just getting back to the swing of things, mountains of washing, cleaning and mail to go through. I had to cut the trip short but tell you why later.
Anyway, had a great time, feel relaxed and refreshed and it sure does you good to just get away from it all. I did a lot of knitting whilst I was away, as you know I took Hemlock with me and managed to finish one skein way ahead of time. I did one repeat on the train, only to find I had made a mistake and had to tink all the way back, was very very annoyed. Two and half hours knitting and I was back to where I started. I aslo felt a little bit nausea too…guess knitting on the move is just not me…urgh.
Much to my disappointment, I could not find a yarn store anywhere. I was so much looking forward to squeezing some yarn and hoping to come back with something, but nothing. Are yarn stores extinct or something? Even the local department store didn’t have a haberdashery department. I did find a couple but they were quite far out of the city centre and as Mr Snobs was busy, I couldn’t drag my mother in law with me to hunt them down. It’s such a shame no one shares the same interest and they didn’t find my knitting fasinating, Oh well.
As I mentioned earlier, we had to cut the trip a few days short. A couple of appointments to view some new apartments were cancelled as I received a call from my hysterical mother to say my father had a car accident. Luckily he was just shaken but the car was damaged. He said he was fine and not injured in any way which was a great relief. The following morning he called to say he had made an appointment at the doctors for a check up, so fearing the worse we made our way back home as quickly as possible. We made a mad dash back to my parents home to find my father sitting happily with his feet up, smiling and watching TV!!!!! He was totally fine!! Uuh??
So much of the weekend was playing catch up with reading blogs and knitting. But today I am feeling somewhat frustrated, angry and feel like throwing my Hemlock against the wall. At the moment, I have sent it back to its knitting bag and into the corner of the room until I can bring myself to look at it, IT has been bad. I don’t want to look at it for a few days cos I have been binding off and I am 56sts from finishing to realise I DON’T HAVE ENOUGH YARN…..you see why I am shouting, you see why I don’t want to look at it or take any pics? The binding off bit is a real bummer as it took almost 3 hours do do it……AAARRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! Actually bummer is too nice a word for it!
So…..if anyone can spare a bit of Cascade Eco yarn in shade 8049………Helooooooo, over here please. Hope you all had a better weekend than me….umph!Off for a sulk 😦
