I just smiled singing that in my head. I have the record of Puff, the Magic Dragon. If it’s about drugs, whatever…I have such fond memories of that song and the subsequent cartoon that was made. I always thought that Jackie was so stupid for outgrowing Puff, and Puff was so sweet. And thus, I guess, began my intense fear of growing up, of outgrowing something or someone. I have no idea why the lyrics came to mind just now, but I had a very happy moment watching a little of the cartoon on YouTube.
I was really proud of something that my coworker, D, and I did during the last two weeks. Every quarter, we have to create a bulletin board about a randomly-assigned subject, and we’re judged on the creativity and subject matter. This quarter, we did holidays and she and I drew Thanksgiving, which made me happy since it is my favorite holiday. We ended up tying with the New Years board for third place, but I’m still very proud of our effort and think that our board looks really classy!!
And finally, some WIP photos for you; this is the sweater I’m working on; the lighting isn’t that great (although the lighting in the office seems to be better than the lighting in the house), but it can give you an idea of what I’m doing. I’m just about ready to split for the armholes…I was planning on doing it tonight, but after the gym, a shower, and then making some healthy “fried” rice and now blogging, I think I’m just going to want to get in bed after this. Also, notice my totally righteous knitting bag!! It was a gift from our friends at Prudential Financial, and it’s perfect because it’ll hold a big skein of yarn and you can draw the top shut so that only the yarn can feed out. I love repurposing things and being frugal!
