Patience really is a virtue

Tonight I decided to tangle with last night's 'spaghetti' yarn. Not that I necessarily had that much more patience today. It only took about 45 minutes but here is the result of my persistence:

I very nearly gave up on this former wad of fiber. Had it not been cashmere it very well might have wound up in the garbage. But I'm glad I persevered and now have enough yarn for another project, maybe a narrower version of yesterday's scarf. I'm so very glad that Linda liked hers.

My other test of patience today was the quantifying of my existence at work. I ran SQL, after SQL, after SQL, trying to validate statistics regarding the individual jobs that I run. I can hear the belt tightening now.....................
