He who laughs on Friday will weep on Sunday. Sorrow follows in the wake of joy. The line is taken from Racine’s comedy of Les Plaideurs. Bartlett’s Quotations
Oh, goody. So, if I laugh today by Sunday I’m in tears. That sorta sucks, doesn’t it? If we just consider the law of averages, then yes, it’s probably fairly accurate. But, I think it’s more in line with the popular notion that we will “pay” for every nice day we have, weatherwise. That we “pay” for everything. Where did that come from?
SO TODAY IS FRIDAY!!!! We loves us a FRIDAY. Even if we end up a tad weepy by Sunday, it’s only because we are running out of weekend, right? So, eat, drink and be merry because it’s FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!
I finally owned up to Peanut that she wasn’t getting her Pirate mittens because I can’t knit two-color without making it so tiny and tight that a toddler could wear it. I have tried and tried and have finally accepted the fact that it isn’t going to happen. I’d actually considered embroidering the skulls on a pair of mittens my gauge was so bad. Instead, I will make it up to her in another way. Somehow. It might involve cash. Or yarn.
I am currently screaming along on the decreases for the sleeve cap on Thing 2. It went much faster than I realized. But, because I am now heading towards the body of the sweater, I have cast on for a pair of mitts. These are Lady Charles Fingerless Mitts by Jasper Adams. I saw them on Ravelry and realized that I desperately needed them. I have no fingerless mitts. I asked for a pair from Peanut for Christmas, but that’s two months away (from Saturday, mark your calendars and start weeping) and I thought yesterday morning how nice it would be to have a pair of fingerless mitts for my morning walks with the big guy. In other words, my hands were mighty cold. So, I went to Michaels and bought some Patons old regular wool and cast on. I really like the pattern and the yarn is warm and strong for mornings out with the dog. He’s not picky about my attire and if you could see me you would know that I’m not either, but my knitwear has to be just so.
I want you all to have a wonderful weekend. Seriously. If I have to come over there and tell you again, somebody is gonna be in big trouble! And, to get that weekend started, here’s “White Rabbit” by Jefferson Airplane (from Woodstock no less).
Have a good one!!!!
