Work and work-related activities are consuming my days lately. My favorite month is almost over. How have I spent it? The above Instagram roundup gives some indication. I am nearly done knitting a wonderful, woolly, selfish sweater, but my gauge has been a little weird these past months (by weird I suppose I mean a bit looser), and I ran out of yarn mere rows before finishing. It’s waiting sadly in a corner until the mailman brings those last few yards. I think it will be worth the wait.
Do the photos require explanation? Maybe. Very briefly, left to right, top to bottom:
1. New York. 2. My life as a human chair. 3. I gave an awkward speech at a dinner, rewarded myself with my beverage of choice, the manhattan. 4. My work took me to a room called the Biblearium. It’s what you’d expect. 5. That thumbnail I smashed back in August? I finally lost that. 6. Seasonal mail from a friend. 7. An eerie orbed moment, supervising a wedding at my workplace, making sure no one touched anything historic. 8. In my work, I also often encounter incredible dolls. 9. History doesn’t repeat itself, but it does rhyme. Apt.
More on the horizon, but perhaps most importantly, sleep, and dreaming of wool.
