The Overtime Vampire

Ah well, I worked 11 hours of overtime this week. Dang, it's hard to be glorious when OT sucks the life out of you. Since I've been working so much, there's not much to report. Cooking has been rather boring. I've been knitting on the projects when I can. The house is a wreck! I had planned on cleaning like a banshee today after work. But, alas, I'm too tired. There's always tomorrow, right?

I really have no right to piss & moan. This is a volunteer thing.

I had asked Tate to bring the knitted things I've made her. She brought over a ginormous bag last Sunday. I had forgotten about some of the things I had made her. It was finally sunny enough to photograph them so I can log them into Ravelry. I have asked my sister to do the same tomorrow. It's nice to keep a log of the projects. I wish I had taken pictures of the things I've made John and Dustin. But, I'm sure they were lost a long time ago.
Tonight we are making Greek Gyros and I'm starting the sauerbraten. It was nice to tinker in the kitchen for a bit.
I was puttering around Ravelry and had the urge to cast on for Elizabeth Zimmermann's Pi Shawl. And here I was telling myself to pick some quick projects next. I'm using some sock weight two-ply I bought from Tracy Bunkers' open house some years ago. This as "dud" yarn and very cheap. I think it will look pretty for the shawl. It's a lovely red color, bought during my Red Phase. If I don't have enough, I'm sure I can find something else to use for the edging.
Pictures soon.
