I don’t know if it is an indication of how busy work is, or how dedicated I am to Icarus, but its been almost a week since I posted. I remember when I used to post 3 or 4 times a week – it is not that I don’t want to – it is just that I either have nothing to show you, or that I’m so wiped by the end of the day that I can’t do much more than sit and stare at the TV.
TGIF. Really. I’m beyond glad its Friday. I worked from home today – I know, you are tired of me saying that – I know how lucky I am. But today I woke up and started work at 5:00 a.m. Even the cats weren’t up yet. And I just logged off – and probably could have worked for another 3 hours. So I’ll have to work this weekend to get things done for Monday. Some weeks are just like this – and this one was like this every day. So it was a busy work-from-home day- I had a bunch of conference calls all day – so while I was listening, talking, taking notes and updating documents, I also did this:
I think I multi-task quite well, don’t you? This is Grandmother’s favorite (Ravel it) – I’ve never made it before, but it was amazingly easy. I got the idea from Deb – she has made so many dishcloths and had a variation of this one. I thought before I try a variation, I should make the original!
What a great pattern – I can’t believe how fast it went. Maybe it was my stress level though! I think I was knitting pretty fast….
I’m have a few more rows on the third chart of Icarus, and then (finally!) I’m on the fourth chart. I am so looking forward to getting this project done. I still love it – but I’m ready to move on. I started the second ball of my laceweight – so I’m going to have a huge amount left since each skein has 880 yards. Maybe I can use the leftovers to make a cute scarf.
OK, I think I’m going to go and knit. Larry is golfing so I’m going to have to wait for my Friday martini (how unfair is that!)….or maybe it is time for me to learn how to make one!
Hope you have a great weekend!
Oh, what’s this yarn? I thought I’d show you that I’ve been doing a little spinning…details another time!
