2. Have a small child that politely requests for either a snack, or beverage, or toy that rolled under the sofa, or paints, or markers, or playdoh and have said child proceed to spill beverage, drop said snack of cheese and crackers onto the floor and continue to have same said toy roll under the sofa, or changes her mind every two minutes every time you sit your arse down to knit.
3. Have a cat that deems the space where you lay your ball of wool when knitting as his...tangle ensues as knitter tries to move said ball of wool out from underneath said cats dead weight body...he's not budging. In my heart of hearts, I know he is toying with me.
4. Have a dear, sweet, adorable husband that requests "5 minutes, tops" of your time to help with a home repair...it is done 3 hours later.
5. Have a blog that deems it necessary to tell you that there are errors each and everytime you save as draft or try to publish. It is a lie. They are playing with me. I am checking out Wordpress.
It has just been one of those weeks where you just don't get a minute to yourself and you feel as though you can't catch your breath. I did get in a wee bit of knitting though.
Behold my Crusoe socks.
These should be finished by now...see above explanations.
Something great did happen, though. A couple of posts ago, I thought I'd throw it out there that I was looking for a ball of Trekking #126 and Valerie, bless her heart, had a ball she was willing to do a trade for. Needless to say, I had to cast on and start.
Thanks again, Valerie!
With Socktoberfest drawing to a close, I've begun knitting on my Dragone shawl again.
This shawl needs my total concentration. So it is late night knitting, which unfortunately isn't good because my brain is saying sleep as opposed to knit. It's getting there though. I'm half-way through chart 2 and I'm just about to start the belly and wings of the dragon.
I also really want to finish up knitting my Marble Cardi so I can start on a new project. Curlie Girl, bless her infuriating enabling heart, has started knitting on the Telemark Ski Sweater from Knitpicks...and here are the colours I've chosen...
*Bayberry - CC1_______*Black - MC__________*Drift - CC2
I really want to knit a Dale of Norway sweater, but have been putting it off because I can't make up my mind as to which one I want to knit. So, this is a nice alternative. It'll also give me some steeking experience.
Yes, that was me making that sound and not the cat
I've never steeked before...and who knows, after this I never may again.
Edited to add: I'm also considering making a little video demonstrating the twisted german cast on and putting it on You Tube. Do you like that idea? Any interest? Let me know.
Keep On Knitting...
