Just when you think the day's going to be a lousy one because you show up at the gym and, to your horror, there's only the tiniest slice of life left on your iPod battery, you turn it on anyway and bite the bullet through a whole hour of K.C. & the Sunshine Band on low (because you worry that if you change the song or turn up the volume it'll will die on you and you'd have to stop your workout), yet the thing rallies through and next thing you know, the hour's up, the clouds part and as a bonus, the girl who dances to all the Britney songs drops her stuff and mimics the whole shebang to the "Oops! I Did it Again" video and then a new guy shows up and plops down on the black leather settee the whole hour you're there and talks loudly to himself about how hard he works out twice a week (turns out he was talking on some sort of secret phone but it was entertaining anyway).
All this, and a pattern I'm working on for Stitch Diva that I've had to reknit for what feels like a billion times, but the thing has to be right, so I'll do what I have to do to get it so it looks like my original sketch. It'll be fine in the end, but oh, to knit with the same yarn and the same colors for weeks just, well, it just messes with my brain. Kinda like how I felt with that failed attempt at what I was calling my Heidi Vest. (See that pic with me and Heidi and that bottle? That's how I feel right now with the whole designing gig.)
On other news, check out the latest Knitscene. I'm featured in it. I've been a little shy about sharing this, but what can I say?
I can feel it in my bones, folks. 2008 is going to be a doozy.
Happy New Year.
