For this week’s installment of yarn insanity… I mean the post where I share what I’m knitting and reading, there has been actual progress 🙂 I finished my BSJ. Well, by finished of course I mean simply that it is off the needles. There are still the minor issues of tails, seams, and buttons. I’m still thinking duckie buttons. And a little duckie coming home outfit. And maybe I’ll make little yellow and white booties with duckie buttons to go with it. The pattern is in my queue but that doesn’t mean I’ll get to it.
So I took the bull by the horns and took the shawl off needles. It was scary. Meanwhile I completely spaced on taking my meds being so distracted by finishing something and trying not to ruin something. Luckily it was NCIS night and Hettie had to give some small pox vaccines. It was a really funny scene. I love NCIS 🙂 Anyway. It reminded me to do my shot and I was up way to late working out a system for picking up all those beastly little stitches. Time will tell if I managed to catch all those little blighters, I’m hopeful but taking a little time before attempting to knit on.
I also accomplished my reading goal for the week and finished Treasures from the Attic. It was a very interesting read. I’m slowly reading Playful Learning, a little jealous of the space and budget to create the “learning spaces” she describes. But like so much else there’s no reason to expect it right now, we’ve certainly got time. The next section starts the activities and I certainly don’t expect to have a young author all that soon either 😉 Both boys are turning into quite the storytellers so I’m sure we’ll get there in time. I’ve also been enjoying the eye candy of Handmade Beginnings and have a couple other pattern books on hold at the library. Because I tell it like it is – yarn insanity.
And now for more
