Anticipation

May 1, 2008

I admit that I am not a terribly patient person. Even though having children requires you to learn a certain level of patience, waiting for things still is quite difficult for me. I tell you these things because I am currently waiting for this.

It all started with this post on Yarn Harlot. She mentioned a sock called Rivendell. Considering my affection for all things Lord of the Rings, I knew I had to have the sock pattern. Janel’s blog informed me that she would be releasing the pattern in a book she was publishing this spring. Translation – I had to wait. Later, she decided to release the Rivendell pattern separately from the book. This action caused my impatience to be at war with my frugal nature. Should I go for the instant gratification of the single pattern or wait for the book since I knew that I wanted some of the other patterns. I opted for the latter since I adore the sock on the cover of the book. Janel said on her blog that it would be available for pre-purchase soon. So I have been stalking her website in anticipation. A few weeks ago the prized book was available for pre-order (and at a discount too – reward for my patience!). Now the book has been pre-ordered and the serious waiting starts. It is supposed to be ready in May. Today is May 1st so hopefully some time in the next 30 days, I will have the book in my hands. I want to confess that this is worse than waiting for the last Potter book. At least I knew that at midnight on a specific date I could have the book in my hot little hands. But Janel only said May. What if the book isn’t ready for shipment until May 30th. Then I will be have to wait until JUNE for the S-L-O-W postal service to bring me my book. And then what if I am out of town on the day the book arrives or it gets lost in the mail. Argghhhh! Rivendell will not get here soon enough!

In a feeble attempt to distract myself from the wait, I am working on a new pattern for a bath set (washcloth and hand towel) perfect for Mother’s Day giving. I hope to have it completed and ready for download by the weekend. Here’s a sneak peak

Off to knit and wait for the mail carrier.
