Edgy (with silk!)

Today I:

  • am experiencing some swap anxiety
  • feel even more tired than yesterday
  • am comforting myself with a sticky bun and Wikipedia

Perhaps I am a nervous person, but my KTC Mystery Swap package is 4 days late. Not the one I sent, but the one I am to receive. I don't know who the sender is, but I am familiar enough with my stat counter to make an educated guess. I think it was sent. Perhaps it is late because I live under a rock. Yet, I think the USPS has a pretty good idea about where I live, despite that rock, because they are on the same block as me.

You know what this means, don't you? Obviously, this is a plot. A cosmic plot to drive me insane. Let's ignore for the moment that I am probably a posthumanist; preternatural forces are plotting at this moment to deprive me of yarn and books, and possibly, just maybe, chocolate. O, cruel Fate!

Edit: Just heard from my Mystery Swap pal, turns out my package was delayed by sickness of the child variety.


Jeanette intercepted my exciting laundry date last night to give me my portion of a group Elann order: 8 balls of blue Katia Fanny (50% silk/50% viscose blend). What am I going to make? Well, this will be a bit obvious: the free pattern on the Elann site. I am a wildwoman.

Last night, I:

  • ate 3/4 of an eggplant parmesan sub with a beer
  • drank half a bottle of mineral water
  • read about privies (this is a highlight)
  • knit a little
  • did three loads of laundry
  • kept thrusting yarn at my boyfriend/ partner/ whatnot and saying, "Look! Silk."

No beer last night? How could that be? It was nice to finally be able to put a face with to your boyfriend/partner/what not. Sorry I didn't stay too long, but I didn't want to interrupt your date. Jamieson looks like he understands the significance of your silk purchase.
