Ugh!!

After all the work to get ready for the carpet installers they call this morning to delay starting until tomorrow. I am SO not happy especially since I was up early to finish stripping our bedroom of everything on the surfaces and the linens from our bed! I never did fall asleep last night because I was going over everything I need to get done in the next few weeks in my mind and I knew I had to get up early too … the two together are guaranteed to make for a sleepless night!

At least I did finish my red scarf. 

Pattern – Be Simple Variation – a free pattern on Ravelry

Yarn – Wollmeise Twin – fingering weight

Needles – US size 6


It’s a little hard to tell from the photo but the dark color in the scarf is a deep purple. 

This is the 4th time I’ve made this scarf – it uses one skein of my favorite variegated yarn and always looks great. It’s been a long time since I’ve had a knitting finish but I’m also making good progress on the striped blanket for the baby so I should have another finish by the end of the month. 

Now it’s time for a nap!

    Ugh is right! I hate last minute delays. I had a similar night worrying about getting up extra early to be ready for this. Thankfully my installer showed up on time. I understood there would be 2 guys. Wrong! Just one guy – so I had to help him move the huge entertainment center myself. Uff da! Even in sections it was a tough job for just the two of us. Hope we’re both up to the job of putting those sections back in there when he finishes the carpet.

    Similar situation here. Our downstairs AC broke on the 5th. I was told the repair would take 3-4 hours. I wanted an 8 am appointment so they would be done and gone by the baby’s nap time at 12:30. Today was the first day they said they could accommodate me. We suffered through unseasonable heat and oppressive humidity (this Cajun girl has lost her tolerance for high humidity) all last week only to have them show up nearly two hours late. And that heat wave? It broke today. It’s actually quite chilly now.

    Lovely scarf.

    Why is it that “professionals” time is always more important than ours? Frustrating! The extra knitting time was nice though.

    Nothing worse than doing all that work and having them say they are not ready. Ugh indeed.

    Based on our experience with contractors in Florida, I’m surprised they called to notify you. We’ve had several “no call, no show” experiences here. Very frustrating!
