Knitting by Blind Faith

Okay, so it’s after 9:00 at night, and I am too exhausted to think of a more creative title. My boss is out of town, and I am holding down the fort at work in his absence, so my hands are full.

I was supposed to speak in front of the County Commission tomorrow morning because we are in danger of losing all of the funding for our limited but vital public transportation. I had put together all that I had to say, like cabs from work to home could cost as much as $2,772 per year before tips, but then RAM had to go into work early tomorrow, which was a last minute change. No worries, though. I may still get a chance to speak in front of the Commission later this summer, or at the very least, my testimony is already in letter form, so I will send them all a letter expressing my concerns.

I ran into a snag on the blanket. I don’t have enough yarn, and it turns out that this particular color is in short supply, and the one place I thought I could get the color I need, doesn’t have it. I suspect that the color has been discontinued (though no one seems to know for sure), so I am reinventing this blanket into a smaller blanket for Peace.

I bought different yarn in a similar color for my nephew’s baby blanket. This means I’ll have to start all over, but there’s no danger of this yarn being in short supply. Plus, it’s worsted, so it should knit up more quickly than the DK I am using now.

On another note, my sister loved the pants I made for my niece. I can’t wait until she is able to wear them.

Good luck holding down the fort! Glad you found some replacement yarn! It is nice to have a quick knit sometimes!

Your shortage of yarn turned your baby blanket into a baby mantle. All things do work together.
