Mondays and Tuesdays are the 2 busiest days of my week. Between the usual school stuff I also have Mr 4 at preschool, and after school activities both days. I also have hospital visits occasionally on Tuesdays too which only adds to the busy-ness. But here I am, Mr 4 is home sick today so I actually have a chance to do something other than running around.
On to what’s been happening in my life over the last few days:
I’ve frogged the Cookie A sock (Angee) that I was working on. Sometimes you just need to make the decision that putting yourself through hell for a project isn’t worth it! I wasn’t happy with the pattern and the colour of the yarn wasn’t helping. So goodbye Angee, we gave it a good try but you and I just weren’t meant to be :p
The Skew sock I was working on is proving to be a pain in the butt but I will persevere. I love the pattern and the self striping yarn on the angle looks so good. But I am putting it aside for a little bit as it’s not worth the agony at the moment, I have enough stress in my life without intentionally adding to it. You can see it’s loveliness here (http://www.flickr.com/photos/30962463@N02/6832110700/)
I’m starting Sunday Swing Socks (http://knitty.com/ISSUEsummer09/PATTsunday.php) to use up the Dream in Colour yarn that is in my stash. I also just purchased some yarn from Bendigo Woollen Mills to start knitting for our Sunny baby. I shall be a busy bee for the next few months but at least it gives me something to do when I’m sitting around waiting for everyone else :p.
Today I need to sew on the elastic for my girls ballet shoes. I’m so scared I’m going to stuff it up, it’s not that complicated but some days I just expect failure.
I’m listening to Great Awakening by Leeland, I can’t get enough of that song. One simple verse and that’s it. It’s the sort of music that I wish I could crawl into, it feels like it’s a part of me. I know that probably sounds so odd, but it’s rare to come across a song that speaks from the desire in my soul.
I know it’s not much and it’s pretty disjointed, I had so much more I wanted to talk about but I can’t remember any of it now. If you’re lucky I’ll be back tomorrow with more (or at least what I originally intended to write about :p).
ETA: Forgive the links, I’m still trying to figure out this whole blog thing, it’s not always as straightforward as it should be
