Or the Longest Week Ever. In history. It’s just Tuesday. And everyone I see at work is saying the same thing – it’s only Tuesday? I hate to answer them – I feel the same and don’t want to add to the misery. I can’t tell you why this is happening. It is testing week at school. But I think it has more to do with the time change aka messing with your body clock. Surprisingly – I only woke up twice last night – that has got to be a record for the past few weeks – where my usual schedule is wake up, look at the clock, go to the bathroom, get back in bed, toss, turn, doze off……….wake up, look at the clock – well, you get the idea. And I take Melatonin, too!
I have been able to get a bit of knitting in each night
Gale. I love this pattern. It’s perfect for my state of mind lately – not too complicated, soothing and I love watching it happen. I just love this yarn so much – I wish I had a boat load of it. You can be sure you’ll see more purchases from The Woolen Rabbit on this here page.
I might have taken some time away from the knitting this weekend to finish up stuff I had laying around
This is some nice Merino roving I had from my purchases last year at Maryland – one bobbin was full, so I finished up the spinning on the other bobbin. The first bobbin I plied went swimmingly. The second one, I believe I cursed so much, I actually thought this yarn might turn blue. But, I persevered and produced over 600 yards of this somewhat fingering weight, maybe slightly heavier handspun – the colors are very Autumn like – and I will probably make this into a smallish stole/scarfy type object. I’m happy with it. Although I’d like to spin during the week and I will if I can settle down for any length of time, I can at least make a point of sitting at the wheel on the weekends. I have so much beautiful roving just calling out to me right now.
I might have spent a little time looking around at yarn on Etsy this past weekend too. And that’s all I’m saying about that.
I have been looking to cast on a cardigan for a little while now – I just can’t seem to find the right direction to go in – Oblique? Lily? Starsky? Of course the weather is slowly getting warmer, but that’s never really been a deciding factor in when I knit what is interesting to me at the time. I have spend a good amount of time the last day or two looking at Starsky – and wanting to use Cascade Eco Wool – but what color? No color? Do I really want a sweater with a belt? How about buttons instead? I don’t know. I have the yarn for Oblique and Lily – but can’t commit. and the Spring Knitty is up………..so there is more to look at and consider….
Maybe it’s just a case of cardY-phobia?
