Spinsterdom, party of one, your table is ready
I spent most of this morning proudly showing off my knitting to every single person who stopped by my desk. You want a banner ad? First, admire my knitting. You need a logo resized? No problem, let me tell you all about knitting class!
I knitted last night. I knitted this morning on the bus. I knitted almost through my first skein of yarn. Admittedly it's a small skein of yarn, but still. Knitting perfectly dovetails with my OCD -- must finish. Must do one more row. Must count stitches. Whoops, twenty-one? Could have sworn I began with twenty. Oh well, I'll just knit those two together. Problem solved. I AM A PROBLEM SOLVER. Must keep knitting. Must. Not. Stop.
All I've heard since Mr. X moved out is, "Laurie, maybe you should take up a hobby or something." "Stay busy, it will keep your mind off things." "Have you thought about taking a class or something?"
Well, the joke's on you now, all you future recipients of thousands of scarves. I have a hobby dammit! Can't talk, I'm knitting!
