Procrastinating fool that I am put off wrapping out-of-town Christmas gifts till this past weekend. And you know what that means? I mailed them today. Yes, today--the busiest shipping day ! When will I ever learn?
Since everybody in my neighborhood is from elsewhere, I knew the Post Office would be jam-packed with others mailing gifts to far-flung places. So I trudged out in the freezing cold ready to hunker down in the Post Office for the afternoon. Brought a snack, a bottle of water and my knitting. I'm working on the Chimney Sock.
There was a line. It was long. I was calm and resigned to a long wait.
Imagine my surprise that it only took 122 stitches to get to the head of the line! 122 stitches! That's two rounds of the sock.
This is either a testament to how efficient and prepared the USPS was to the December 17th crowds or it's a statement about how slow a knitter I am.
Later this afternoon, I'll be going to Kay's sew-up party. I can't wait to see all those gorgeous squares!
