Odd Day, Cool Shirt, Weird Knit

I had a weird day at work today. We had a power outage that wrecked my productivity for most of the day. It was an awkward, somewhat frenetic afternoon. While I don't mind a change once in a while, it was more of an inconvenience than anything. I hate having get-up-and-go and having no way to get up and go.

Imagine my delight when I came home and discovered that this t-shirt from Threadless had arrived.

Come on, that's a cool shirt! And it brightened the dull, dreary, grey afternoon significantly.

In the meantime, I think I did a dumb thing. I started a new project without really thinking very hard about what I was doing with it. I wound up a skein of Kauni yarn I've had for a while, and decided to knit Norah Gaughan's Rhodocrosite. Since I actually have two skeins of this yarn, I blindly cast on twice as many stitches, thinking that I'd make it wider and longer than the original. The only thing is I really didn't think it out too well, and I think it's going to end up either being an awkward square shape if I use both skeins, or a weird rectangular shape that will be too short. I really should think these things through, but maybe I'll be lucky and it'll work out somehow.

Rascal doesn't seem to be too concerned about it, anyway. I should learn to relax about stuff like him.

That was Thursday. And now for the trudge to the weekend. Wish me luck!

Yes that shirt is so cool!
I'm sure your shawl will turn out fine.
Lovely color by the way.
