I just deleted a post where I put a lot of energy into taking dictation from the whiney voice in my head. To replace it, I’m going to do a bit of randomness for you.
1. This afternoon I went into a store to buy shampoo, soda, and coffee. I picked up the shampoo, then stood in the aisle near the checkouts for nearly a minute trying to remember what else I needed. I decided the shampoo was all I came in for, and proceeded to get in line to pay. Once I reached the front of the line, I remembered the soda.
2. Since at no time whilst executing number 1 (above) did I remember that I also needed coffee, I had to make another trip to the store after Max & Penny went to bed.
3. I’ve been diligently knitting on my Christmas gifts (although to be honest, I can’t remember how many I have left to do – but I think I wrote a post about it a few weeks ago, so I’ll just have to go back and look), but making lists (in my head, of course, because why would I actually want to remember this stuff) of all the lovely things I’m going to make once the holiday knitting is complete. I finished the second project-that-can’t-be-named at 4:09 am on Saturday, and wove in the ends and blocked it at a more reasonable time that afternoon.
4. I just glanced over at my wool chest, where I thought I had my pile of finished gifts stacked, and I can’t see any of them. As soon as I’m done with this post, I’ll have to investigate and possibly put a cat up for sale on eBay.
5. Tonight I went to my project page on Ravelry and hit refresh, fully expecting to see the “% complete” numbers to increase. I really can’t explain it, and (just in case you’re thinking about trying it yourself) it didn’t work.
6. I met a knitter named Diane at the ice rink last Friday. Not only did I meet her, but I had an actual conversation with her (I have trouble talking to strangers)! She said she had recently started knitting again, and was pretty excited about it.
7. I have about 40 rows left to knit before I start decreasing for the toe of the second stranded sock, so I’m going to go work on it now.
Maybe tomorrow I’ll show you some pictures of stuff.
But don’t count on it, because I’ll probably forget.
