Having deep cuts on the pads of both my knitting fingers makes it quite difficult to type, let alone knit. And no, I’m not going to show you the injuries. I don’t need blood and gore on here along with destroyed yarn. One is quite enough, thank you.
The injury on my left hand happened when, in a fit of clumsiness, I stabbed myself with my (very!) sharp sock needle that I am knitting my January socks on. The injury on the other hand however was my own stupidity and if I had been wearing gloves (as one should when its 16°F), because due to the cold a piece of rubber on my car was rather hard and inflexible and I sliced my finger pretty good on it.
I will say though, that my trip into Cambridge went well and I’m hopeful that something good comes of it. I also got a call for a one week temp job for the coming week which would be really nice. But I definitely think I’d like the job I went in for today over the second one. But I’m not going to be too picky and I’ll take what I can get.
For now, I’m going to be knitting and spinning up a storm. I decided to sign up for the D-SPAKAL challenge hosted by the YarnGasm Podcast. The D-SPAKAL is a fiber to shawl spin/knit-a-long using only a drop spindle. I figure it’ll be an interesting challenge. Of course, having two injured fingers doesn’t help, but I’m working on it anyways, or as much as I can considering.
Status on the Yarn Harlot blog: I’ve made it to March of 2004. Which, since she started in January of 2004 is a fair amount of progress for one day. I love reading her writing.
Since someone asked, I’m making a list of all the podcasts I listen to and I’ll put a list up (probably tomorrow) with all of the podcasts and all of the links to said podcasts. For now, stay warm! It’s been snowing here.
