Here's a picture of laziness:
That's right. I couldn't take the time to wind up my yarn before I started knitting with it. It's not as dangerous as it looks, however. I have it wedged on my knee, so as long as it stays put, and I pull out the yarn carefully, I should get no knots.
Sadly, this is something where I have a lot of experience. And the percentage of times where I do this successfully without knots is....
Hey, do I hear a kid calling?
No, wait, it's the dog....
Gee, I think I forgot what I was talking about....
Anyway, here's what I'm doing with the green yarn:
I've started a new CIC log cabin sweater, using this pattern again. It's a good knit.
I took a picture of our back yard to show that we got off lightly with the storm.
Just some branches and leaves, but no damage.
I took a look at this before heading down the road. Less than 1/2 mile away the neighbors have NO leaves in their yard. Nada. Zippo. Nothing.
Now I'm feeling like we got the brunt of the storm. I remind myself that the neighbors either have no trees or pine trees, but aren't surrounded by leaf bearing trees like us. But still....I'm a bit annoyed.
Then I see a tree down. Then another. Then I hear about the power still being out. Today, three days after the storm it's still out.
So now I'm back to ---hey, we got off pretty lightly.
I'm going to go and count my blessings, enjoy my electricity, and do some more lazy knitting.
