I figured I should add a new post since it has been a few days. Things are very busy at work and I'm tired at the end of the day. That situation wasn't helped by having to take the day off yesterday to wait for the UPS man to deliver my new computer. Yes, that's right--I have a new iMac Intel Core Duo. The package was supposed to be delivered on Wednesday, but I didn't realize that a signature would be required and no one was home at 9:30 in the morning. I stayed home Thursday and figured I'd just be a few hours late and go in as soon as it arrived. Not so much--the big brown truck didn't appear until 2:30 in the afternoon. The day off was nice, but it would have been better with some advance notice.
Knitting Olympics-wise, I have finished the first Odessa hat. Unfortunately, the intended recipient came over today to visit his Mama and do laundry. He claimed the hat right away and I forgot to get a picture. Guess he liked it--it was on his head as he left for his apartment. My plan is to cast on the next hat as soon as I get this entry posted. Mustn't keep the other son out of the loop. He picked out his color when visiting last weekend. The pattern is great, very simple once you get the rhythm down.
I ordered some nifty yarn for my Secret Pal and look forward to mailing by the end of next week. Just a couple more goodies to collect and this package is ready.
