I've been crap for posting lately. I have been doing stuff. I think I had bad case of the crankies too, and really just didn't want to subject anyone else to it, other than who are legally bound to me, if you know what I mean.
However I think I've turned a corner. I'm finding some inner sunshine and I'm going to focus on it. There are so many things to be pleased with.
After too long a period of time I got to visit with my sister and her family, which meant we got to see this little man at Little League. What a ham! Look at the "Blue Steel!"
I got a chance to bake a little, not bread. For some reason, I am only capable of talking about bread and clipping bread recipes. Who knows, perhaps this will resolve itself during Spring Break ...
I worked some more on socks.
I cast off my Great Divide. I sort of ran out of the color yarn I was casting off with and couldn't bring myself to back it out too much further, so I um, improvised. I did the double-knot Jane Richmond join (yes Evelyn, it's awesome!!) and cast off in the contrast color. I could not even bother doing it symmetrically. That's okay. It's done. I don't know what to do with it. I was thinking maybe I'd give it to the local APS for their elderly clothes/warm things donation box. I just worry about handing off wool. It's good stuff, Madelinetosh, but it's not always the easiest to care for ... well you know what I mean.
I will tell you a secret. I have more than a few knitted homeless things. Do you? What do you do with them?
I will post a bit more later this week. I have a new project I cast on. Crazypants something new! But not so distracting that the socks become orphans.
Also it's almost the end of March and there hasn't been a giveaway. I have an idea or two, so stay tuned for a post ... before the end of the month on something to win. Really! I promise!
Spring Break is around the corner for my household, my daydreams of knitathons are already out of control. Regardless I will make sure I have at least one pair of In Progress socks finished AND some baby knits off to a roaring start. Those co-worker babies are coming the end of May! not that the knits will necessarily be done on time, really don't you know who I am?
