In an attempt to make my growing scarf project a bit more interesting, I foisted the thing onto the flowering orchid to add some visual interest. It’s funny though, the pink orchid really brought the pink out of the purple bits. I don’t think my friend is a big pink wearer, but I do like a colorway that is chameleon-like. An accessory is indeed meant to accessorize isn’t it?
I’ve been back at work and spotted a knitter on my first day in the field! The knitter in question was a young man, 20s, casting on for a hat on bamboo dpns. I admired his work and tried to interest him in drinking the koolaid that is sock knitting as he was quite adept at those dpns. I dressed it up as "it’s just a hat only skinnier". I don’t think I convinced him in the time it took for me to pour him a coke though.
I’ve got a few days off and instead of staying home and being a bum (natural inclination mind), I’ve got fun times with friends planned. It is my birthday tomorrow and if I can’t eat yummy food and fly to Chicago and see a show with Carolyn, when can I? Sleep is for next week.
Hopefully on tomorrow’s flight to Chicago I can knit on the scarf and show you even more incremental progress. I’ll try not to forget my camera this time too…
