Ok, so not really. It was nice and chilly this weekend, though. After 100+s, 90s, and 80s, the 50/60s on Saturday and Sunday were absolutely heavenly. All I felt like doing was knitting all weekend long.
I knew when I made that schedule how silly it was! I always think, “Gee, if I only had a schedule, things would turn out great.” Never happens. I make the schedule and ignore it completely. I do the same with recipes. They’re more guidelines than actual rules.
No joke! It’s only 97 days until Christmas.
I finally sat down and took a look at my Christmas list for this year. I think I’ve overbooked myself! For someone who only seriously started knitting back in December 2011, I may be about to overdo it. Then again, where’s the fun without a little challenge?
Not that I’m complaining. This time last year, we were in the middle of a summer-long drought and well over 100 degrees Fahrenheit by now. Knock on wood, 90s are feeling pretty good (relatively speaking) and it’s raining. It’s just hard to get motivated in this kind of weather.
It’s coming along very slowly, this shawl. You’d think that after having just made one, I’d have realised just how much time this pattern takes. I’m nearing row 30 of 70-ish, so I’m not even quite halfway through.
