What Happens When You're Bored

I had an incredibly boring afternoon today.

Normally I don’t take an afternoon break because I’ve got way too much stuff to do, but today was an exception. I was finishing up some projects, and didn’t want to get started on a new big project right before the weekend, so I was doing some piddly stuff and trying to find small things to keep me busy for the rest of the day. I thought I might as well take an afternoon break, but then found myself with nothing much to do… so I brought up MS Paint and started doodling. After creating a crude beautiful mountain and lake scene, I decided that it was so childish lovely that Margene should be there in her ribby cardi and Opal socks, knitting something pink. So there you have it. (This is what happens when you don’t have any knitting handy. A word to the wise.)

I decided you couldn’t really get a good look at Margene and her socks in the main photo, so here’s a closeup. Astonishing likeness, if I do say so myself.

    Everything’s really about knitting in the end. Or at least it should be!
