Making up for lost time

In so many ways. I hate Microsoft Windows. My parents have some sort of pop-up blocker and it killed my original post. Here’s a skeleton version of my original. Damnit. I miss my Apple Powerbook already.

It’s been a pretty busy week. We had our day long pre-sales meeting at work on Thursday and I had a lot to do to prepare for it, so I didn’t get as much knitting done as I would have liked. It’s not like I could knit during the meeting either, I was taking notes and stuff.

I had somewhat planned for this and did manage to finish the first part of the sweater (the back) and a bit of the first sleeve last weekend. I think that put me kind of ahead of where I wanted to be for the week. I knew that I’d get a bit more concentrated knitting time this week. I’m currently in Rhode Island and since I don’t have a car I had to get here in some way shape or form that would provide me with knitting time in transit (read: I took the bus). I knitted a lot on my way here while listening to previous knitting podcasts (Cast On is my favorite, but I also like KnitCast – I’ll put links up to their blogs/ podcast sites on the sidebar soon EDIT: Apparently I had already added the podcasts to the sidbar, but I put them in their own little category now ). Once I got home I knit a bit more and I think I’ve gotten quite a bit done on the first sleeve. Hopefully I’ll finish it today, which would put me back on pace.

Thursday, a bunch of work friends and I headed towards Bedford street to The Village Tavern (yes, there is more on Bedford street besides The Point!). In addition to consuming the correct amount of alcohol to make the day long meeting disappear, we watched the women’s curling match. I’ve never seen anyone get excited about curling, but people in the bar were cheering and seemingly excited about it. I just saw some of the Biathalon, and I think that’s one of the most coolest sports I’ve seen recently. I like that it kind of occurs in stages. I’ve been kind of interested in getting into snowboarding because it looks like so much fun, but I haven’t gotten there yet. Perhaps some day.

I hate it when work gets in the way of knitting...
