Since I finished the Peony Twist Cardi over the weekend (still minus the buttons), I don’t have anything else on my needles. For some reason I have great ideas and projects I want to start but I just can’t get enthused about any of them at the moment.
Several months ago I bought Around the World in Knitted Socks by Stephanie Van Der Linden intending to start at the beginning and knit my way through the book. I love hand knitted sock but only have one pair to call my own. For some reason I just can’t get the first one on the needles. In fact I can’t get anything on the needles.
Maybe I need to take a break and concentrate on the decluttering aspect of my house. I really need to organize my knitting, sewing, printmaking, paper, polymer clay, and painting materials. Do I have enough hobbies?
I found the box of felt ornaments I wanted to complete for Christmas last year. I also decided what I was doing for Christmas card this year. Why do I have Christmas ideas right now? It’s cold, wet, and dismal outside and it reminds me of winter, not spring. Plus if I get on with these now, I won’t be in the panic I usually am in December.
I have a “procedure” Friday morning and the prep involves laxatives. Lots of laxatives. And lots of sitting. Then Mr. Aitch and I will be in the car for about 6 hours this weekend. Maybe I can get motivated to get something on the needles to keep me busy.
Edit: Happy Birthday, Mom. I miss you.
