Don't they know I'm trying to knit here?

The boss is out of town for two weeks so I thought, "Excellent! I can knit while I'm filling in at reception." Except, no, I can't because I keep getting projects that require me to actually work while filling in at reception. People, what are you doing to me? These hats and scarves don't knit themselves, you know. Today, while getting in five minutes of knitting time, I met one of our new employees (Hi Kristen) who is an avid knitter and on Ravelry. I showed her the very difficult (not really) double knitting I was doing and she was suitable impressed.

So, yeah, still not done with the striped scarf of either of the two (three, four) hats I've started. Here, enjoy an impossibly cute picture in the meantime.
It's a wee mousie* with a teeny tiny teddy bear. I could die of the cuteness. Thank you, Cute Overload.

*it may be a rat, I'm not sure. Either way, it's too cute.

yeah, I'd say rat, or some other rodent (mebbe a gerbil?), but wicked cute. We're undergoing a fiber renaissance here at Law Firm - I think 4 or 5 of the "new" (within the last year) people are yarn crafters of some sort. We will take over the world. And then you will always get to knit while at reception. :)

I cannot tell you how it SOOOO bugs me when people at work interrupt me while I'm knitting or crocheting! Argh! I feel your pain.
