Well I think I've had enough knitting therapy for one week. I finished about half of the garter stitch mango blankie; now it's time to put it away for a spell and do some more involved knitting.
I just hooked up with an old high school buddy and found out that he is now married and has two girls, age 14 months and 4 months! So off to the yarn store to buy yarn to knit coordinating sweaters. Since my one attempt at knitting a cardigan was a dismal failure, I figured a child's pullover would be a good way to build up my confidence once more. I have chosen this pattern found on knitty.com. The colors are purple and green; of which one pullover will be purple with green stripes and visa versa.
Still waiting for my backordered Zen yarn to knit the "Sprout" pattern on knitty.com. I'm working on the flyaway summer jacket occasionally. You must be thinking, "does she ever finish a project?" Yes I do. I jump around a bit, but basically everything eventually gets completed. It's called "multi-tasking."
Speaking of multi-tasking; I have to work on not only my short-, mid-, and long-term goals and objectives, but review and comment on the goals and objectives of my team members at work. I am actually finding this very hard as "upper management" did not provide a template or anything to "leverage" off from. I have a lot of goals I wish to accomplish in my job, but I am so overwhelmed with the day-to-day work, that it seems to reach beyond is almost impossible. I also find it difficult to voice my deficiencies and areas for improvement (do I suffer from avoidance?). Anyway, as I am agonizing over this, work is piling up and a line is forming outside my cubicle. I'm sure once this task is done, I will have a sense of accomplishment - now to just meet those goals!
