NOT A Whole Lotta Knittin' Goin' On...

It's just as much of a slog to knit garter endlessly as it is to print ONE page of two W-2s at a time...but I've got a tinker-toy printer, and if I'm not careful? They either jam, or they feed two at a time, and the forms aren't inexpensive...

Now you might think that just printing them would allow a lot of time to knit in between, but the printer isn't slow, so I have only a few seconds between putting the commands in to print one page of two employees (and specifying which ones), and then pulling the page off and inserting the next page in...(and remember there are SIX copies per employee!)

Hardly enough time to take a stitch.

So...If I can finish these tonight, I'll get the year-end bookkeeping finished up tomorrow and delivered on Monday, and then perhaps, I'll have a little time to work on my second sock. Oh! And then think about getting organized for the Cat Show next weekend, too...

I did turn the heel of said second sock late last night, after taking Sis-in-law out for her birthday - we saw Last Chance Harvey with Dustin Hoffman and Emma Thompson and it was delightful!

(and then we came out of the theatre to 12 degrees...BRRRR!)

Ok. Enough of a break - back to the printer!

I'd read a terrible review on Last Chance Harvey but it looked so cute! I'm glad to hear you liked it. The critics and I never agree anyway.

One doesn't knit while waiting for the printer. One plays Spider Solitaire. ;)

Oy. That's a lot of fiddling with the printer! I hope it finishes up quickly so you can knit in peace :)

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
