Why is it that 4-day weeks feel so long?

I was not sure I was knitting Jaywalker right, but sometimes it takes a couple of inches before the design starts to appear. I consulted some books and online reference about the double
decrease stitch because I had never come across it before. It seems to be coming together finally, although the pictures aren’t all that great. I like how the varigated yarn is showing the direction of the stitches.

Other Amusements
So glad it’s Friday. Why is it that 4-day weeks feel longer than 5-day weeks?

I am going to a wedding tomorrow afternoon in Fairfax. Not really looking forward to it. Weddings don't thrill me unless it is a close friend or relative. I used to work w/the bride and haven't spoken a word to her since she left in July. Why was I invited?? I think most of the office will be there. (Great, socializing with my colleagues.) I feel like filler for her side of the church. Not how I would do it, but it's not my money.

I am happy for her, wish them both all the best, but I find the hole thing a bit over the top. It’s only one day people. Not even a day, a few hours of church, food, and mediocre music and dancing. (Can you tell I have PMS? I am all bitchy today.)

If I ever get married, I would like to do the destination wedding at an exotic location. Maybe I will get some ideas when I am in Belize next month.

Fantastic start on the socks, Sarah! That yarn is just fabulous.

OH, Belize will be so cool! :)

Destination weddings are definitely the new trend and one with which I disagree. Not only does it require me to use lots of vacation time, the outlay of money is way too much for me; unless, of course, the couple is paying for everthing ;)

looks good. I am not sure I am doing it right, either. I had 3 stitches left at the end of Row2 and am unsure what I do with those...
