I wrote three blog posts this week....and trashed them all.
The first one complained about the heat.
The second complained about the rain.
The third (if you must know, my favorite!! it really was a hum-dinger!!!) complained about the mosquitoes.
If I'm going to complain (obviously, I'm in that kind of mood), I'm going to complain about something over which I have a bit of control.
My knitting. (or lack, thereof.)
I have a dozen (yes, 12!) lovely projects on my needles, and according to my Ravelry page, all 'active'. Go ahead and check it out. Great projects. Every single one of them.
I've been looking at this one setting on my desk for weeks. (I even found a cute little basket to hold the pattern, stitch counter, and pencil for it...that all fit nicely in that unused corner.)
It's become part of the decor.
One of my favorite baskets...by the fireplace in the living room... has sort of a theme going on in it. The Chatham yarn in two weights..one skyp sock finished and a shawl started (which I think I have failed to list in Ravelry which brings the 'active' total to an even baker's dozen.) I'm thinking Cape Cod...cool evenings, cozied up by a fire... (which isn't happening any time soon in THIS heat!!!)
My Icelandic cardi has nestled itself in the corner of the kitchen. Of course, it has. The Plotulopi yarn is the warmest to knit with, so naturally it has found it's way to the warmest spot in the house.
Flaum has been living in a bowl in the family room.
Don't you like the way the grey plays off the redware and complements the collection of old pottery?
Are you seeing the same trend I am? I used to think of my decorating 'style' as primitives with a gardening theme. But, it appears it's quickly becoming 'Early American unfinished knitting Projects'.
The only thing I've actually been knitting on lately has been...
the sock yarn blanket....
only because it hasn't (yet) found a suitable place to 'decorate'.
I'm spending the afternoon 'undecorating'...
maybe, then, I'll actually finish a few things.
