I have been just exhausted all week – I’m not sure why, but I’m abnormally tired. I need to figure out a way to manage my commute and work schedule. I leave the house at 6 in the morning, get home at 7:30 and I think its finally just starting to drain me. (I’m sorry – didn’t you know that this is the Jeanne Whines blog now?). I think the tiredness is starting to impact everything else – I’m getting sort of grinchy about stuff – more prone to lose my temper quickly, whiny, and just messing up things.
Speaking of messing up…..I messed up my Flicker socks each time I picked them up this week. I am not sure why – I knit these on the train, and just couldn’t get it together to actually knit the chart. Grr! Now I’m sort of iffy on them – like the pattern, like the yarn – just not sure I like them together. But I’m past the heel, and not sure I want to frog them. I was going to sit down with them this weekend and see if I can’t get these back on track.
So I’ve been working on my newest project (I have done a bit of work on my Child’s First sock, but I do have to admit that Ariann has been sitting gathering dust all week). I decided to not make the sweater I showed last time – I started it but the chart was pretty small, and I decided that some mindless knitting was a good thing right now. So I decided to make Spray….and I have to say – there is nothing so nice as mindless knitting on size 11 needles!
I love how it looks – and its so soft. I think this will make a really comfy turtleneck for next winter….I do want to make the cardigan, so I’m stalking more Plaid on eBay.
So its Saturday, and I suppose time for Saturday Sky….
Although it was nice and warm earlier this week, its sort of grey and cold today. Damn – too bad I don’t have a finished Ariann to wear.
I’m going to meet Laurie for some lunch, tea and knitting…and then its Saturday Nap for me (and Nipper!). Hey, I wonder if I should start a web ring of Saturday nappers? If you nap or not – hope you have a wonderful day!
