  • Something Strange

    If you haven't found something strange
    during the day, it hasn't been much of a day.
    -J.A. Wheeler

    The existential question of the day:

    Do people look at you strangely when you take photos of your knitting?

    Natural light is good, right? As you can see in the glamour shot of two sleeves reclining gracefully on a ledge, progress on Am Kamin continues apace.

    Check out the Olympic countdown here. Notice that it keeps going when we sleep, eat, go to the gym, go to those wild and crazy Olympic Village parties, and even when we arrange our knitting in artful poses to make passers-by stop and stare.

    I hear ya. The neighbors look at me particularly strangely when I take my tripod outside and use the self timer to take repeated pictures of myself modeling whatever my most recent finished object is. I can only imagine what kind of egomaniac they must think I am.

    I intend for my "percent finished" bar to make up some ground on my "percent time elapsed" countdown tonight.

    Am Kamin is looking great! Can't wait to see it in person soon. (You're going to be finished in plenty of time, no question.)

    Love today's quote. I don't say that often enough - I always look forward to the quote!

    I was just thinking that this morning, about the neighbor thing. I took my pic inside this morning because the neighbor was working in his yard and I figured he'd think I had a screw loose or something, taking pictures of knitting on the lawn and such... like he hasn't figured that out already!

    Hmm, I think I'll continue taking my pictures inside, sans natural light...

    The teammates are slowly trucking along, but between ER shifts (Leah) and studying for Step 2 of the Boards (Katja) we haven't made as much progress as Theresa. But have no fear, next week will be better as rotations end and boards are taken.

    The sweater is gorgeous. I take lots of pics on my front porch. I keep hoping a neighbor will get curious and I can HOOK yet another person with the knitting additction. It's like self preservation. I want great yarns and patterns to keep showing up - lol!
