I am going to change it up a bit over the next couple weeks. My goal is to start writing more, writing more in book form, in the afternoons, giving myself little mini writing goals involving chapters or pages, and the best place to do this is not in my house. And, if you’ve taken a look at the Sweatshop class schedule this week and next, I’m going to be spending a lot of time at New Wave as it is. Why not mix it up during the day?
Today’s location? Atlas Cafe on Armitage and kinda Humbolt. It is small and very quaint and they have been playing The Softies all afternoon (and I know that band, and sound cool, because of PT) and I’m very ok with it. I got a little cookie with my small cup of coffee for $1.59. Free WiFi. Rachel walked over before going to work and we caught up – A LOT has happened since Sunday afternoon, naturally. Now I’m sitting here enjoying my high boy table next to the windows, watching the rain.
Last night PT and I met some friends at Cleo’s on Armitage for 10 cent wing night. We knew 10 cent wing night was coming, but not until like 9:30, so we kept dinner light.
Last night’s salad was cucumber, broccoli, carrot, romaine, tomato, avocado, and mushroom and radish from the farmers market, with my dressing of choice, Kraft Free Thousand Island. So good! And when I ate the Cleo’s max of 12 wings 2 hours later, I didn’t feel so bad.
The salad I made for lunch today was the same, minus the broccoli and avocado. I love huge salads in the summer time. Veggies are so cheap and everywhere, and eating a big salad is so cool and refreshing! I can’t get enough.
It occurred to me that I haven’t been talking very much about knitting on this knitting blog the last few days. My sock is on pause until tonight’s class, sitting, ready to turn that heel. My Knit Pick’s yarn hasn’t come in yet so I haven’t had a chance to work on my Summer Sweater. Leaving:
I’ve been making little progress on my sweater pattern. This weekend was just go go go I didn’t take a lot of time to knit anything after getting done with the foot of my sock. That is one thing about the summer, not a lot of sitting watching movies time. And I didn’t want to watch the Tigers games this weekend. Stupid Pittsburgh.
I like how this is shaping up! I love yarn over increases, so they had to be involved. I love the chunkiness of the ribbing, and the contrast with the blue yarn in stockinette. I’m getting increasingly nervous about dividing for the sleeves, since I have no idea what the stripes are going to look like with the sleeves, how many increases to do, or really what I’m doing at all, but I just have to try it and see what happens.
I let Rachel distract me for a while, so now its after 4 and I’ve got to write at least a little bit, since that is my goal for getting out of the house! You know what its like, HAVING to write your BOOK at the COFFEE SHOP.
I hate myself
