not so bitchy stitchers
I arrived early (as is my want) and was pretty nervous. had managed to nearly finish my comfort drink (hot chocolate with lots of cream) when someone arrived who looked knittable. In the end there were only three other women. as i suspected i was the youngest but it didnt matter. every one was so nice! and the two hours went by so quickly i couldn't believe it. i wish it was twice as long and every week not once a month :p
Nobody was in the least bit patronising... not that they should've been, but i have this secret feeling that somehow im doing it all wrong. riddickerus really, considering my turn over, but paranoia is like that. And luckily the narky shearing shed lady was not part of it (another secret concern).
There was a baby jacket, a beanie and a feather and fan scarf on various needles as well as me with my scarf, chardonnay and arabella (nobody even suggested i have a short attention span!)
Only down side was that nobody i knew was working at starbucks that night... but that would probably have given me performance anxiety anyway so it's probably just as well.
So yes, are we all updated? Chardonnay is past the ribbing and im trying to get past the arm decreases before i start on the front of Arabella. Oh yes, and i have an exam on tuesday which i should probably study for at some point :p Sorry no pics, but my camera is still away.
And i should really clean the house before mum and dad get home so their relaxing weekend isnt for naught. It's so hard cleaning with the stinky one around (brother) because he wont help, he plays metal too loud, leaves organic fragrances and doesnt clean up behind him as he goes. i just cleaned the kitchen and put on the dishwasher and already i can hear him making himself food... messy fat spitty, splashboard smeary, dirty bench, onion peels on the sink, water on the floor type food. i want to cry. I love kids but i suspect if one of us doesnt move out soon i might get over the idea of having babies one day.
Erk. Wish me luck, i go to combat the stench only a sibling can produce.
