Earth to Bookish Girl - We Have Leg

Two observations about the new job:

A -
Elisa is evil. She failed to remove the scary offending clown on January 19th in the Knitters Calender that we both have. I realize now why she wanted me to work with her - so she can scare the bejeezes out of me. That and tempt me into trips to the yarn store during lunch.

B - Do I really want to be a part of an office community that has a sign "Please flush after use" over the toilet? I realize that PhD's can be a little flightly...but, really, is this necessary?!

On the knitting front

We've got leg!

These are the no-sweat pants from Interweave Knits. A fun knit for a fun girl..

aww, those pants are cute! you're doing a great job on 'em. so elisa left the clown there, eh? so long as she doesn't knit one up and begift you with it, i think you're safe. as far as tempting you with lunch hour yarn shopping, man, can i work there? it'd be a heck of a commute :p

Jeez - Blogger was being a brat last night so I couldn't leave you a comment!

I'm EVIL, huh? Okay, maybe a little. I *might* have gotten a tiny giggle once or twice when I thought about you running out of my office yesterday. But only once or twice. Certainly not more than half a dozen. ;)

The no-sweat pants are coming along great! I can't wait to see them as an FO.

No Sweat Pants are the best! Mine will be a year old in a couple of months. I wear them constantly, they are so comfy and warm. It is one of the few things I've made that I actually wear with a high frequency. The homespun gets even softer after being washed and dried.

I can believe it that PhDs might not remember to flush... we've got a lot of weirdos in my department (I hope I don't suddenly forget how to flush when I eventually get my PhD!)

Those looked SO comfy, Wendy! I'll be begging you to help me make a pair of my own, I'm sure. :)

Does Rob know you're showing that kind of leg on the internet?? Good thing the creepies out there don't know how soft that legging is... ;)

I'm glad you're back, and supremely impressed that you kept yourself away so long. I hope that you are settling in nicely over there with Ms. C-knit, and that you are loving your new job.

Happy Thursday!

The pants are off to a great start! I have been thinking about making some of those for my sister... they look really warm!

Have a good weekend, Wendy!
