There is nothing worse than coming home and seeing a box.
That’s right – a box. Normally, I really like getting boxes. But not today…because today’s box didn’t have yarn. It had…
A tart pan. I am making the most amazing dessert for Thanksgiving (it is a Caramel Pecan Tart). And I needed a tart pan – so I ordered it from Amazon. Which is normally great – but not when I’ve been waiting for yarn to come. Yarn that is going to be used for Christmas presents. And no matter how many times I say that I’m not putting pressure on myself, and people will get what I finish – I’m feeling a little bit stressed. And I better see a box of yarn pretty soon….or grrrr….
I am going to show you what I’m working on – and its really boring. But it is all I have at this point. And everyday I’m fighting the urge to knit socks. So humor me and let me show you the project.
It is pretty, and I like the yarn. And it is sort of boring. I’m sure it will be nice in the end – but it is really just mind-numbingly-boring.
Beyond being bored by the pattern, I’ve also been pulled away from knitting on the scarf by a book. I was really iffy on it when I bought it – but thought it was something different – and it is, and I’m really enjoying it. So much so that I barely knit on my commute today, and instead sat and lost complete track of time reading. Love books like that!
OK, moving on – did you see this yarn? Gorgeous. I just may have to fall off my yarn diet wagon. The worst part about subscribing to Lime and Violet’s Daily Chum is the pictures of yarn all the time – I have a much harder time staying on plan when I see them (sort of like staying on a diet when I have M&M’s in the house) – but I can’t unsubscribe….
I’m working from home tomorrow – fortunately, my car died today. I know, I know – odd of me to say fortunately. But it is a perfect excuse to work at home while it is in the shop – and I can make my desserts. It is just the kids and Larry and I for Thanksgiving, so no big stress. Just the perfect kind of holiday.
Hope you have a happy Thanksgiving (if you are in the US) and have fun at work (if you are not in the US)!
