I had a wonderful Mother’s Day – I went to my Jenny Craig appointment and somehow managed to lose 2 pounds last week. I came home and vegged completely. Lazy doesn’t even begin to describe it. The kids all gave me wonderful gifts, and Larry gave me tickets to a weekend in NY in June to see a Broadway show. I ended the day with chicken pizza made by Larry and apple crisp made by Cieara. I was touched at the thoughtfulness of my family – just really a wonderful day.
Which totally made me feel better about what happened with my lace. I started the pattern, as you saw, and ….messed up. Frogged it. Started again. Messed up. Frogged it. I did this three times, and finally got it going. And that’s when I realized – I just didn’t like it. I don’t think I like Schaeffer Anne for shawls. So I rummaged in the stash, but just couldn’t anything that I wanted to knit. I’d find a pattern, but not the yarn. Or the yarn and not the pattern. I just feel like I’m drifting and don’t have a plan.
Which is making me go back to basic knitting. I’ve been doing this for the last couple of weeks….
Yep, knitting dishcloths. Something so soothing about it, eh?
I’ve made four so far – and I think I’m done for a while, but I do enjoy the mindlessness of it sometimes. Its the perfect anidote to knitting that isn’t going well.
So the lace bug is still screaming at me to knit something….but I just can’t figure out what. I hope something comes to me soon – do you know how much laceweight yarn I have?
