Ahh, that's better!
So much more sock-like, donchyathink?
So, this morning I went to renew my passport, which expires in a few days. As we all know, it is, I think, impossible to travel anywhere out of country without one these days, so I thought it best to get it done. Did the photo thing on a day I thought I looked okay - came out with my hair looking like a comb-over faux-hawk - and prepared myself this morning for the rumoured 3 - 4 hour wait at the passport office.
I did one clever thing... I completed my application online.
I arrived, knitting and iPod at the ready, to a S.R.O. (I only recently learned that that means Standing Room Only - most of my life, I thought it was 'Sold Right Out') waiting room - no chairs, and they had only been open 10 minutes!! Because of my online application, I was moved to the "special" line with only three people ahead of me. Folks, I was in and out of there in less than 25 minutes - honestly! I left thinking that I had forgotten something, or something went wrong, because it just seemed impossible.
Nope. All fine. Done in under 25 minutes. I love the internet.
And now onto spring projects... for moi... in my spare time (a favourite oxymoron, right up there with 'extra cash'):
I started this, using navy bamboo yarn purchased some time ago from Discontinued Yarns from the spring 2007 issue of KnitScene because I am... I don't know... there's something wrong with me, that's why.
And as I started it, I pulled this out of my stash, and I want to start it, too.
I am working on my 2nd of 3 Bemidji sweaters for Artisan Knitworks - will take pics once all are assembled - during the day, but night knitting is for me... I just have to figure out what the hell to knit!
