I Want to Knit
Monday, February 11, 2008
a reprieve
I feel like I've been granted a stay of execution!

I was supposed to return to work tomorrow. Maternity leave- over. Real world- commence.

Then I got a letter in the mail this morning advising me that my maternity benefits will be ending on February 16th (Friday). Which means I don't go back to work until NEXT Tuesday.

There was much happy dancing done in this house!

Back to knitting- no news on the striped scarf or the silk Rumple shawl, as neither were touched all weekend. Instead I cast on for a hooded cardigan for Jakob with some lovely soft blue/gray Marble yarn, and am about 1/3 done with the back. I had hoped to finish more over the weekend but somehow I ended up with only about an hour to knit each day. I have photos but they are on my camera, which is downstairs. Since I'm very tired, downstairs seems really far away right now.

    Yey for an extra week!

    Maybe this week we can go out the 4 of us with Bubbie? I'm sure she'd like that. What day are you free?

    Congrats on the extra week! I can relate, since my maternity leave is all screwed up from having to leave work earlier than planned. Enjoy the additional time!
