Joining Ginny again this week. Although I’m starting to feel a bit silly posting the same thing week after week. I still haven’t had the time to bind off the shawl I’m working on. I did start casting on my next project though. And yes, I really only started – I can’t even get the free time to cast on 200 stitches and yes I am feeling a little resentful about it.
But I am working really, really hard at focusing on all the good rather than the less than stellar. So I can tell you that I am very excited to be starting something new and not just because I have been working on the same project since August. A fresh start is always such a good feeling. And the color of the yarn is so refreshing. But I can’t tell much because I’m still in secret knitting mode and I know for a fact that who this is for reads here 🙂 I’m also really hopeful that I’ll finally get the time to learn this bind off and start getting the shawl off needles because that too is a wonderful feeling.
I have been able to read quite a bit this week. I finished Knit Together and The Invention of Hugo Cabret and really enjoyed both. Now I’m on to The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey and back to You Are Your Child’s First Teacher. And The No-Cry Sleep Solution because something HAS to be done. I also have two library books on my nook – Last Child in the Woods by Richard Louv and Fifteen Minutes Outside by Rebecca P. Cohen, And I have holds on 2 more ebooks waiting for me too. Remember I said a couple of weeks ago that I went a little crazy with the ebooks? Yup. I think I might have it timed out to finish them all before they’re due back (and No-Cry is mine to keep – I have been to the sleepless rodeo before and didn’t care for it those times either.)
So my plan for today is to check out what else is going on the blogosphere. But try not to take notes of any books or projects to add to my lists 😉 And go to playgroup with the kidlets. And read lots. And finish casting on. And maybe kick everyone out of the house so I can start that bind off. Hey, you never know – you gotta dream big to win big, right? Happy Yarn Along!
