Tuesday Blues

It is Tuesday and I am blue, I had a hard day at work and I did not get all the things I wanted to done while I was at work. I have so many cases to finish and so little time. I have only 6 working days left before the agency is closed for Christmas. I think I have 40 maybe 50 case left to process. I don't think I will be able to take all of my vacation days and I am sad about this fact. I am thankful to have a job but I really need my vacation. I will think positive and work very hard during the next six working days and get as much as I can done. I have made great progress on the scarf I am knitting for a coworker. It is the Magic Scarf from Laurie Perry aka Crazy Aunt Purl in her book Crazy Aunt Purl's Drunk, Divorced & Covered in Cat Hair. I had to rip out the first attempt last night I was to busy talking to keep up with the pattern. It is not a hard pattern but trying to talk watch tv and knit this pattern just does not mix. You repeat the same thing every 10 rows but you have to keep up with the pattern. 10 rows of k5 p5 and 10 rows of p5 k5. I am using Patons Classic Wool in Grey Mix very pretty colorway. My daughter wants me to knit a scarf for her boyfriend's mother and so I need to push myself to finish the scarf for my co worker and get started on my daughter's request. If you work on it hard enough the scarf does knit quickly because you just cast on 20 stitches. I will post a picture sometime this week of the finished co worker scarf.
