Rough start to the new year today. I elected to come into work today, despite it being a statutory holiday, to make up time that I took off for the Christmas holidays. I'm thinking this was a poor choice. So far today I have:
- broken the water filter for the axolotl tank in the office whilst trying to clean them out after a week of languishing in their filth
- locked myself out of the office with no one in the building to let me back in (as far as I knew)
- flooded part of the office floor with water running from the tap that I left on whilst locked out
- got a good friend out of bed on his day off to let me back in
- confused a bunch of people because of my lack of organization
- forgotten my lunch at home
- been "tsk tsked" by the cleaning staff who think the tap water on the floor is an abomination
Anyway, I thought I'd post these photos before I forgot about them. I finally finished my November Ruffle Wrap. Actually, I finished it three weeks ago, but ran out of time before my holidays to take photos of them. I've actually worn it a bit around the house, and it's so warm and comfy.
In my last post about this wrap, I was complaining about how I'd run out of yarn before I finished the ruffle, and that I wasn't going to rip back to the stockinette to fix it.
Well... I woke up early the next morning and decided that there was no denying it: I would be unhappy unless I fixed it properly.
So, I ended up ripping back to the stockinette portion, and even ripped out an extra inch to be sure, before I re-started the ruffle section. It was painful, but it was so worth it.
So here it is: The Mercury Plummeting Wrap, named so because the colour is called Mercury and it was knit in some pretty chilly weather.
Finished lenghth: 69 inches. Finished width: 19 inches. i.e. big enough.
I'm off to take some Advil and keep on truckin'. Here's to a New Year! Maybe it'll be better tomorrow...
