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… :)
Oooh what’s the Prym finger thingie? Looks intriguing! Sorry to hear you’re having a crap time. Look after yourself.
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!
I don’t think yarn bought during any kind of break counts. Especially if it is on discount.
Yarn toys! We should all have lunch breaks like that … enjoy playing this weekend.
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.
:) Sending some good vibes your way!
Excellent toys! And yep yarn bought on a break doesn’t count!
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!)
E neka si :) Uzdravlje ih koristila :) !
I know all too well that feeling of being overwhelmed at work. Thanks goodness there are no yarn stores near my school, or I’d need a second house to store my stash!
Now those look like some handy toys!!!!!
new toys are always a good investment during tough weeks. I hope next week is smoother, and the tasks fewer.
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.
That really is a cute skein… what will she become?
She’s already halfway something (I didn’t lose any time!), more on it (with photos) soon! :)
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?
e ovaj prstenjak odvajalac boja bi mi bitno olakšao život kad sam radila opus spicatum, javi kako radi :)
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! :)
Whoa, I’ve never seen a knitting thimble before! Cool!
Don’t forget: after a rain the sun comes out again and there even might be rainbows. So cheer up! I like your toys and I hope you will tell us how they work.
