So the damaging news first. My ipod got run over. I had it clipped to my jacket and was riding my bike to work. It must have come off when I hit a bump and it took me a couple blocks to realize. I turned around and rode back, to see it lying partway in an intersection. Then I had to wait and watch as more cars went though the intersection. I did not see any car hit it and held out hope, but it was not to be. There is a dent in the back and the screen has been severely damaged. I look at it and see a butterfly.
Do not worry about me, I knew that there was no hope with fixing it or going without. It makes public travel much less tedious. So I stopped by the apple store, which was not even slightly out of my way and but a new nano. Not something I was planning on doing, but I do like the new features.
Secondly I managed to push the bike into the back of my ankle. Its a nice bruise that I saw in the middle of a conversation with someone and decided to comment outloud. It was a little steam of thought conversation, of course the person on the other side of the conversation was slightly confused. I haven’t known him very long, so he’s not used to my quirks. Try not to bruise a tendon, it makes walking more painful.
Okay so when I got back from replacing my necessary entertainment device (from now on referred to as Ned) I decided to work further on the bear jacket. I had got most of the sleeves done on my trip to Ohio. and so I connected the shoulders and began to follow the directions, a bit incorrectly. Incorrectly in that I started on the wrong side, not the right side. Wierdly the pattern wants me to rib again between the neck and hood. I think that’s odd because it makes a clear definition and I like things to flow. I do not know that I would recommend a pattern by Lois Daykin, I have been slightly annoyed several times now. I really should get this jacket done since it was for the birthday on the 14th. Luckily a one year old has not concept of time, aside from its been too long since you fed me.
And when this is done I can work on the creation that will happen with this beautiful yarn. See the green working through the black. Perfect for a River Tam inspired sock. Now I just need to map out chaos.
