knitter’s lunch break

One of my favourite bloggers wrote out a (very amusing and so very very true) knitter’s monologue in a yarn shop yesterday… I read it and laughed. Today, during my lunch break, I thought of it again. This week was tough at work. And it wasn’t getting any easier today. After a morning during which I was handling seven different things at the same time, just before lunch yet another task was put on my plate. I had been planning to spend my lunch break at my desk, working, so as to get some extra time to get things done, but this last thing tipped the glass of overwhelmedness.

And so I decided to take a walk instead.

And on that walk I came across a yarn shop.

And in that yarn shop I vented all my frustration. I had promised myself I wouldn’t buy any yarn for a while. But no matter, there were toyz to be had!

And as I was waiting to pay, a little discount ball of yarn called my name. I took it along, because she whispered that yarn bought during a knitter’s lunch break doesn’t count… ;)

And thus finished my lunch break. The rest of the day at work was spent much happier. ;) And this weekend I’ll be trying out my new toys… :)

I started knitting completely by accident, when I was visiting my parents for a holiday in 2008. On a boring Sunday afternoon, I decided to dig through their stash of books to see if there was anything interesting to take back to my apartment. A knitting manual happened to be one of the books I found. I got curious, my mom immediately dug out her old needles and yarn stash (which she hadn’t used in a decade at least), and in a few minutes we were both casting on - she by memory, I by following the instructions from the book… :) Since I normally prefer learning from books, this was ideal.. I took the book home with me, and very very soon - I was an addict.

    • Well, I can’t tell you much more than the photo, Prym isn’t very well known for their lengthy explanations :D but I imagine it’s for single-handed colourwork. I’m dying to give it a try!

  1. I’ve been eyeing that row counter for some time now… I’m wondering if it can be used for knitting in the round (I do about everything on magic loop) ? Maybe I can thread some scrap yarn through it and tie it around the needle where my beginning of round is ? What do you think ?
    Oh and good luck with your well-deserved toys :)

    • Yeah, I had been wondering the exact same thing. Yesterday I just decided to go for it and try it out. It’s not that expensive so if I don’t like it, no big waste :) I think scrap yarn is the way to go for knitting in the round.

  2. Sorry to read that you had a difficult time. Hope you feel better now! Wish you a lovely week end! Have fun with your new toys!
    Glad you enjoyed my post! lol. (And thanks for the link!)

  3. Brojač redova je jedan od najbeskorisnijih pomagala u svijetu pletenja po mom mišljenju, prije ili kasnije zaboraviš okrenuti brojač, k tome ide mi na živce na iglama. Postoji jedan daleko bolji homemade brojač, s kojim ne možeš pogriješiti sve i da hoćeš, čim uhvatim vremena da se vratim pisanju postova obećajem pokazati kako izgleda i koliko je funkcionalan.

  4. I hope the rest of your day was better and you could finish those tasks. I just wish I had any yarn shop closeby, but my work is just too far from the center.

    What will that skein become?

    • Malo me jedino brine sto mi je mrvicu prevelik za kaziprst, taman mi sjeda na srednji prst… A od tvrde plastike je, ne prilagodjava se, pa se bojim da ce spadati… No vidjet cemo! Definitivno ce biti izvjestaj! :)
