Although I am already trying to whip out the dishcloths and finish a pair of gloves for Rocket (one of which also had to be frogged and re-knit), I need to get this hat done by, dare I say, TUESDAY, as I intended it as a birthday present. I thought that, despite my rush, this would be a quick knit, especially since it's really just one of those good stress-knit projects where you knit in circles, decrease a few rows, and bind off. No frills. Just one color change and mindless knitting. But, perhaps, the stress is overcoming my knitting. You see, we hired a contractor to build a barn 8 weeks ago. By now, we really should have a 3-story building with a roof and only siding left to go on and a few gazillion gallons of stain. Instead, we have a hole that, turns out is 2 feet shy of being deep enough and a sizeable portion of a 12 ft., u-shaped, load bearing block wall that doesn't pass inspection (or any building codes) and a contractor who doesn't feel the need to use licensed professionals. There's more wrong with this situation, but you're probably stressed out just from the little bit I've mentioned.
So again, I knit. TUESDAY. This has to be done by Tuesday.
