Kindred Spirits

I'm still alive - barely. Ok, ok that's a total dramatization, but I feel like being dramatic. Last week was a lot of work, but I also got to see Pat for the week (awesome to see you, pal). This week I'm fighting the people who are working on my car, a cranky client who doesn't like to answer questions (apparently he's looking for a mind reader) and I'm getting ready for a July program that will be fun (this client is always fun), but three days of some challenges. Weee...we're so busy in the office - so much is happening. And July 4th is on a Wednesday this year - which really sucks, 'cause this year, we really could've used a three day weekend right about now. :)

I've got pictures to show you! I made a little stop over at Purl after Chris and I visited MoCCa on Saturday and I've started another pair of socks. I need a new sock pattern that's cool - I'm looking...

But really, those pictures are coming this weekend - in the mean time, might I point out that there are two new knit along buttons in the sidebar. I've found a group of kindred spirits - a group of knitting Steelers fans (we all know how much I love my home town) and a group of football fans (we all know how much I looooove football). These new friends will make the football season even more fun (who knew it could be anymore fun than it already is?) I'm really excited.

For now, lunch break is almost over - so pictures in a day or two. I did create this button for the Black & Gold knit along in case anyone wants one -
I'll offer it to the knit along creator first. For now, that's all the news that's fit to knit!

Gotta Get Up 'Cause I Gotta Go to Work

'Cause I gotta go to bed so I can get back up and do it all over again....

That song is running through my mind on a loop right now. I am working all of the time right now. I've got more big projects for work than ever right now and if I can survive past July 12th, I'll be a happy girl.

Right now it's just before bed and I'm watching my favorite show Deadliest Catch on DVR and hanging with my sweetheart. Soon - I can shut off the world for a few hours and I can rest my keyboard weary hands.

The Monkey is off my back and I have some beautiful socks as a result. I'm still plugging away on the Clapotis, but it's hot and that thing is a damn big woolly sitting on my lap at the moment. I want to find another fun sock to knit in between.

For now, say a prayer that July 12th gets here quick, quick, quick. And that's all the news that's fit to knit.
