A Day In the Life – 5KCBWDAY1
Describe a day in the life of a project that you have made, or are in the process of making.

As far as coffee tables go, this one seems pretty comfortable. Or maybe I’m just used to it. I spend a lot of time here.

My days all start off in darkness. The dog is usually snoring mere feet away from me. He’s never tried to eat me, but he has stopped by to sniff me a few times, and once he came perilously close to drooling on me. After a while, The Long-Haired One gets up, long before the sun does. He moves moves me out of the way whenever he eats. To his credit, he’s never once dropped food on me. Then, he leaves and it’s just me and the dog again.

Hours later, I hear The Knitter get up. She used to shuffle out for coffee in the mornings but not lately. For the rest of the day, I can hear her typing in the other room. Sometimes she’ll move me to put me back where I was before The Long-Haired One had breakfast, but for the most part I spend my days alone.

In the evenings, after The Long-Haired One is home and they’ve had dinner (during which time I usually get moved again. The arm of the couch is a lot more comfy than the coffee table), it is my turn for attention, at long last! The Knitter is watching a show with a very cranky but brilliant doctor that is addicted to painkillers, and I steadily grow, my cable pattern appearing a few rows at a time.

There were some days where I was left on my own, but I understand that my time as a WIP is almost over. The Knitter has commented about a “deadline on this test knit”. Soon, I will be a completed hat and will get to live on a head instead of a coffee table, sometimes at least. I look forward to it!

Today I am bored, so I took a #selfie.
