For the record, I did not need that new Ipod. But I ended up making more money off those four workshop days than I thought I was going to collect. Not quite twice as much, but close. Using part of it towards replacing the little shuffle model I dropped whilst attending those workshops seemed perfectly logical. I also blame Kat. She influences me. Now I have an Ipod Touch and a waffle maker thanks to her randomly mentioning all the cool things she has in her life. This is not my fault...
Where was I? Oh, yes. The sock. I was going to finish it on Saturday. I had quite a bit done already so this was not unreasonable. However, as Saturday drew nigh, I sort of thought it might be a good idea to adjust the due date in my helpful app. Sunday seemed like a good safety net.
I didn't plan on the heat. No one told me that there would be heat. I suppose any number of meteorologists might have mentioned it, but none of them bothered to call or email me personally. Frankly, that seemed a bit negligent but I'm too hot to do much about it right now.
I tried, though. I really did. I knit in the cooler morning hours and hung in there until the sticky air made moving the needles impossible. I did my best.
Close...but no cigar.
The heat beat me. There was nothing whatsoever in that helpful little app. for this kind of situation. Maybe when things cool down a bit tonight I'll be able to give it another go. I might still make it, but I doubt it. I think I might need to sneak in and change the due date again. No one needs to know. It'll just be between me and the Ipod. I don't feel guilty, not one little bit. It's not like I've had much in the way of support here.
My cheering section demonstrated a marked lack of enthusiasm which didn't help matters at all.
