Sitting here in my apartment as 11 pm approaches, melting down because I realize there is no way I am filing the grant application on time, re-writing the story in full for the reading, finishing the knit commissions, or the costume for the variety show this week. And there are a host of other things I am torturing myself about. I thought I would open to my knitting blog reader for comfort and read you first.

You have no idea how much I needed to hear this. This was truly a gift. That opening quote is going to get me through the rest of the month!


Beautiful gloves. Haven't tried gloves yet, but I know that I can knit them.
