I'm so wiped out. Don't even ask about my day. Very thankful I am that both my DH and I have jobs. Yet OTOH I really miss being a housewife. Sigh. (And, I'm tired of catching everything on the job, especially scabies, stomach flu, strep throat, every cold virus known to man, and bronchitis.)The grass is ALWAYS greener on the other side of the fence, I know, I know.....
I have finished my audited telecourse videos. That was really fun. Now I am trying to squeeze in reading the text each night. So glad I don't have to study for tests or write papers. No way would I get it done.
But watching videos to learn from while knitting is double duty in my free time, and I really like that. Suweeeeeet!
I got a new pattern book: Norah Gaughan volume 2. This volume had the most patterns I'd like to try. Right now though, my knitting seems to be bogged down in BIG LONG-TERM PROJECTS! (did you know that's the name of a Ravelry group? OF COURSE I'm in it. Heh.)
Since there seems to be such incremental movement forward on my projects, the picture's I could show would be BORING. Instead, I'll just give an update on my knits in progress:
1. Two blankies for Christmas gifts. Not lap-ghans, but good big blankies. One is the Moderne Log Cabin from Mason Dixon, the other is funky flower grannies by Krochet Krystal (see link on sidebar)
2. Summer Sampler Lace Shawl. That edging is c-r-e-e-p-i-n-g along....
3. Aran Wrap Cardi. I'm still in love with this project. Wish I was farther along, but that's what you get when your attention is divided among 4 large projects!
Soon I'll probably need to knit a washcloth just for the sense of accomplishment of FINISHING SOMETHING!!!
Hope you all have a nice weekend. Me, I'm overwhelmed with all the things to do, as usual. "Serenity NOW"
