notes from the office #17

i made a ton of progress on my temperature blanket this weekend. like i’m halfway through january! it’s my goal now to get up to current, or at least as close as i can get. the whole point is to record each day, right? i’m doing a high/low blanket in stockinette. black border, high, 6 sts garter stitch, low, black border. i kind of regret starting this in stockinette because i forgot that stitch curls. i decided that i’m going to get some fleece when i’m done and stitch the knit to the fleece. it’ll hide all the color floats too, so that works well.

i also frogged the car blanket i was working on. i wasn’t happy with it anymore, so i started a new throw with the same yarn. it’s got a gray border with a garter lace center in a similar layout as the temperature blanket, like gray border, red garter lace, 12 sts garter stitch, red garter lace, gray border.

there was a black out an hour ago and it’s literally taken every ounce of concentration i have to get back on track, and even then i’m still like… well… facebook is telling me i have a comment so lets check that instead. ugh no no no no, get back to it you still have a 1 1/2 inch stack of edits to do GOOOOOOOOOOOOOoooooo

have i mentioned that i love dan carlin? i could listen to him talk all day. in fact, i have listened to him talk all day. even the “blitz” episodes are ~3 hours long and are just as amazing as the long-form podcast.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ this has been my day. i have to save every 10 seconds *just in case*

but this is going to be the year where i get fucking pro-active about shit at work. no more “sorry i can’t do anything, this is out of my jurisdiction”. i’m going to reach out to who i need to reach out to and get the fucking job done so i people stop fucking calling me.

i think arcmap was trying to tell me something:
