BB saves the day

I am in the throes of a major pout - my best friend (through no fault of his own - family emergency arose) had to cancel our much awaited lunch date tomorrow, and I am about to sulk in a particularly unflattering manner. I am up to my butt in the Finland book, and will have to schlep into the city tomorrow anyway because of the other appointment I have - the not nearly as fun as going to Nougatine for lunch appointment, of course, is NOT the one that was cancelled.

While I understand intellectually that pouting is not going to improve the situation, sadly, it is about all the response I can muster at the moment. And I should be working instead of pouting, because missing deadlines is going to make my life suck in ways I can only imagine, but pouting is still the order of the day.....

In an effort to cheer me up, BB offered to put on the kid's newest wardrobe addition - a One Skein Wonder in the purple Filaro Sparkle that came in my Cherry Tree Hill grab bags at the beginning of the year.
The one skein wonder was made in a flurry of "trying not to shoot my father" knitting while I spent the weekend with my parents. The old man can be a lot to handle, and I handle it a lot better with needles flying. The pattern is a breeze and made up very quickly. The kid wore it to school today and pronounced it comfy and cool (as in hip, not as in not warm).

It looks nice on BB, but even nicer on the kid!

Okay, so it's hard to sulk when you are playing with a giant stuffed bear in a purple glitter shrug, but I am making an effort....

And as for last night - Dulaan knitting won out over the Clapotis I wanted to cast on. I made a fabulous (if I do say so myself) stash busting hat out of leftover bits of Lamb's Pride worsted, and it looks wonderful indeed. BB says she will try it on for you all tomorrow....


Signing off with a half-hearted harrumph....
