seven reasons why today was better than yesterday:
- the snow is gone – it turned to rain overnight, so everything’s been washed away. it’s been gray & rainy, but the wind is a lot calmer, so i’m no longer getting a face full of snow every time i walk out the door.
- welly boots plus woolly socks is a great combination (i even splashed through some giant puddles in the park, just because i could).
- i planned ahead, and brought spare clothes to work today, so i had something dry to change into after the rainy, puddly dog-walk in the park.
- we’re now officially in single digits in the RSA-comes-back-from-india countdown – 9 days left!!!
- i had to get to the studio early for a courier pickup – i didn’t love the early start, but i got lots of work done this morning, and even had time for some coffee & a cake.
- the courier pickup was a big box of yarn that was heading off to Loop London – who have started stocking some of my yarn!! (i’m super-excited about this as i always thought that Loop was a pretty swanky place, so i guess that means i’m swanky now too!)
- i finished my knitting olympics project, well ahead of schedule! (i’ll take pictures tomorrow when there’s better light.) i was completely convinced that i was going to run out of yarn, so much so that i’d dyed up a skein of my own merino/cashmere/nylon (a base that’s almost identical to the handmaiden yarn i was using for the socks) in a colourway that i tried to match to the project yarn, in case i needed it – but i managed to finish the second sock with less than a metre of yarn left (which is just as well, since my dye-matching job wasn’t too great).
maybe the week is picking up…
