A blog about my life, knitting, and other stuff.

We had another )&^%^?$%(! snow day today. And it wasn't even snowing!
Yesterday we were all so bored sitting around the house. I ended up falling asleep in the middle of the day for a few hours. We were so bored my older son said he "wished he was at school." That's saying something, isn't it?

I put in my obligatory 2% on Frost Flowers. I knit a few rounds on my Railway Stitch sock. I knit a few rounds on my Traveler's Stocking. I don't feel like I'm really getting anywhere on any of these. If I can keep up on 2% a day on the shawl (which I haven't done so far--I've been cheating on the shawl a lot)I still won't have it done by the end of the year. I should still make my goal of finishing it by the end of the decade though.

I've joined the Stranded: The Colorwork Challenge. I'm going to be boring and knit a another pirate hat. Ever since I knit one for Wes last year my older son has been asking for one. I bought the yarn some time last year and it is now buried in one of my bins of yarn.

And has anyone seen my sock mojo? It's totally gone. It's been missing for about six months now. First I petered out on my Estonian sock--started in May--, which is still sitting on my desk half knit and giving me the evil eye), then Canal du Midi dragged on for three months, Traveler's Stockings have been on the needles for a month now and the Railway Stitch socks have been in progress for a few weeks and I still only have about three inches done. What's happened to me? All I want to do right now are sweaters but I'm trying to hold myself back until I get the rest of these done and make some serious shawl progress. Ariann, A Cardigan for Arwen, the Sunrise Circle(.pdf) and Poppy are all calling to me. Must. Stay. Strong.
