Hallelujah. This may not seem like breaking news to you, but the effect it has had on my life is amazing. No more nagging guilty thoughts! About scarves anyway. Ahem.
I think it turned out OK. Really though, I’m just glad I never have to look at it again. Unless the co-worker wears it. That would be ok, although also unlikely since I so awesomely finished it just in time for the weather to warm up. Let this be a lesson to you people—NEVER ASK ME FOR ANYTHING.
Anyway, I’ve survived yet another week of soul sucking office work and will now be rewarded with the joy that is the weekend. It’s The Lovely Miss Q’s birthday on Monday, and I think I’ve put together a pretty cute gift. Are you reading this, TLMQ? Are you dying of curiosity? You will just have to wait! You can rest assured it’s not made out of yarn though, because I would have had to start that project in October and frankly my planning skills just aren’t that good.
In honor of finally finishing the Effing Scarf of Doom, here is today’s joke:
A woman is knitting as she drives (nobody knows why—clearly this is VERY dangerous). Pretty soon, her speed has crept all the way up to 95mph and she zooms passed a police car. The car gives chase but the woman doesn’t notice him. Finally, the cop pulls up along side her and yells ‘PULL OVER!”.
She looks at him, then back at her knitting. “No!” she yells, “It’s a CARDIGAN!”
In closing, I’d like to say that that joke is awesome and I totally don’t apologize for it. I do however, apologize for the non-excitingness of this entry. It is what T-Bone might call ‘interesting’, which is what she says whenever she finds something to be completely uninteresting, perhaps even distasteful. Grandmaster Flash has noticed it too and we don’t think she even realizes she’s doing it—although I guess she might after reading this. Don’t stop saying it, T-Bone! It is so much better to be told you are ‘interesting’ than that you suck. Ah the balm of ambiguity.
