WIP Wednesday On Thursday: The Plumber Edition

Yesterday is the first day in months that I’ve felt the urge to pick up my knitting during the day. I was able to get through the first lace section and start the next section in the afternoon. After dinner I nearly completed that stockinette section.

I think I needed a bit of a distraction while waiting for the plumber. We noticed over the weekend that there was a leak under the bathroom sink. It was a small leak, fortunately, so we just discontinued using the sink until we could get an appointment with the plumber. We were given a wide window for arrival and then received two calls from the office because the plumber we had been scheduled with was hung up on the previous job. The second call offered to send a different guy who was finishing up a job and could come immediately. We said sure. I love when a company keeps me updated when things shift. He arrived, assessed, picked up a part (50+ year old sink needed special part) and was done in just over an hour and a half. Totally painless.

Today will involve a couple of errands but then a free afternoon. I bet I’ll feel like knitting. Seeing progress always gives me the urge to see more. While I knit I think I’ll watch a little TV. There is a great fiction I started watching the other day. No not that one on CSPAN. I’m rewatching the Harry Potter movies. They’re perfect for watching while knitting. I’ve seen them enough times that I can look down at my knitting now and then and not miss anything on the screen. Also my tension stays nice and loose. I can’t say that about that other fiction that’s playing out.

  3. That shawl is shaping up nicely! I’m watching Bridgerton – I never really focus on a show, so it doesn’t matter much what I watch – except for Blacklist. Don’t bother me when that’s on! I finished a hat and realized that if I switch the stripe pattern, there’s enough yarn in those two balls for a second one. Also, I’m studiously avoiding the other fiction that’s playing on MSM.

    Yay for returrn to knitting! Hubster laughs at me each time I watch the HP series. It’s not like I haven’t seen a bazillion times, but every time they are on I watch.

    That yarn is working well with your pattern, and I love the bits of lavender, if that is what they really are. Glad you are enjoying your needles again. This weather is making me want to knit all the time!

    You are too funny! Glad your knitting is progressing and I agree that progress motivates me as well. Something about getting closer to the finish line is exciting.
